“When I was fundraising to go on a mission trip to Nepal through Young Life Expeditions, I came up with a plan to do what makes my heart beat; capturing stories in the form of artwork through photography. I called it Sweet Justice Photography because when people used my services, it would allow me to go love others in Nepal. I wanted to introduce to the kids there, a program that changed my life when I was in high school called ‘Young Life’. I wanted to experience a culture on the other side of the world that opened my eyes to new ways of seeing love; like a language I already knew, but never heard before.
My camera became a vessel to show expressions of joy. This occurred in the moments when justice was received in the form of love in slum villages, orphanages and tiny Sherpa towns. This passion did not end when I returned to America. I realized I could continue telling the stories of people in every corner of the world with photographs and words. When we understand the way others live, it not only stirs up love for one another through connections, but it also spreads awareness for issues that are in need of caring hearts and acting hands.
‘Sweet Justice Photography’ exists to tell the stories of the people next door and around the world. The hope is to spread the word about the good happening in our community, while also calling others to act out in love.”
