Latest Shoot | When You Open Your Heart

We must look at ourselves over and over again in order to learn to love, to discover what has kept our hearts closed, and what it means to allow our hearts to open”.

Why do you do what you do? What is the reason you get out of bed each day?

What about when life gets really tough? 

In each photo shoot, I love discovering the WHY to each person.

In a recent shoot with Rachel Joy, she shared her journey of working in the cardiac medical industry for the past decade, watching people in the operating room die of literal broken hearts. 

From her intimate experiences in moments of life & death, she has witnessed the impact of someone who has stuffed away their personal dreams, not resolved a relationship or forgiven a loved one, or perhaps neglected themselves to the ultimate tipping point of life & death.

As a teacher & leader, she is now working one on one with people in following their hearts, their deepest longings and healing pain. 

I personally believe that when we open our hearts, we allow LIFE to move through us.
