something happened in santa barbara…my heart was empowered, my vision cleared and my faith was ignited.
[ and a couple bottles of wine were shared amongst my favorite people ]
UNITED was more than a photography conference it was a place to be renewed, to inspire and to be affirmed. it was a venue to share and engage, to reflect and ignite. santa barbara strengthened the friendships i had made over the previous months and made way for new meaningful connections. i have been somewhat avoiding writing this because its hard to believe i have found “my people” … the people who understand exactly who you are and love you just the same. the people who you can drive around listen to music in and out of conversation and feel comfortable in the silence. the people who allow you to have your “me” moments. the people who push you to be the best version of yourself and expect nothing but YOU.
the type of people that TRULY care. its bittersweet that the experience is now behind us, but we made some wonderful memories that will forever be a part of US.
so much lies ahead for the service, the industry, for life, for the relationships that are being built and especially the art of photography and that to me is beautiful. it’s the beginning of something and whatever that something is, i trust full heartedly that god has a plan and he will see it through.
i think this little VIDEO tells the STORY OF OUR COMMUNITY better than i ever could.
united to serve.
