I have the phrase “Connection + Kindness” in various places across my website. But why?
For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to do more with my life. Not because I wanted a bigger house or a fancier car, but because I feel this strong pull to connect with and help humans.
Like many people, figuring out what I want to do with my life has been a tumultuous journey to say the least. My major changed a handful of times. I had job leads and lost them before I knew it. I have taken classes and am constantly trying to learn new skills. And yet, through it all one thing has persisted- connection with people.
Every person is so unique- they have a story with joys and pains all their own. I so badly want to know and be a part of people’s stories even in the smallest ways. If I can do a session with a client and make them feel seen- like truly seen- and share some genuine kindness with them, that will mean more to me than a paycheck ever will.
I still have so many desires to help the world in so many ways and I know that taking photos is such a small piece of what I could do for the world. But while I continue to figure out how to best support the humans around me, then I will keep pursuing connection and kindness with everyone all the time.
So, if you are interested in connecting with another human, sharing some smiles and laughter, and walking away with just a little piece of joy that you can share online or hang in your home, let me know- I’d love to connect and share some kindness with you!
