I cried my eyes out this morning, like really cried. This all still feels so surreal.
We spent all of but hours together on Mafia Island, the small island off the coast of Tanzania where we met.
We started a relationship half way across the world. 9 months later, I went to South Africa to spend a month with this man. My family and friends all thought I had lost my mind. Truth is, I did. As I listened to and found my heart.
It took three years for him to immigrate here where he started completely over. He’s been here for less than five years where we’ve gotten married, had our daughter, turned his dream career of being a fire fighter into reality, while running my business and so much more! As if all that wasn’t expansive enough, we just closed on our dream HOME in the mountains. In just a week, we will be moving to this inspirational home engulfed by the most stunning trees, the freshest air and the most quaint of towns.
I am grateful.
I am humbled.
I am beyond blessed to have a place to call ours, for our family to grow, for our dreams to flourish, for our people to share.
To all my clients - please know, this will only enhance our photographic exchanges as my access to exceptional locations is only expanding. I am still here, documenting love, spreading love. Just doing so from a new home base.

Friend, I share this as inspiration as this dream, felt like a very distant reality.
