Bride and groom dancing on the steps at Sheldon theater in St. Louis Missouri

Best of 2021

Happy New Year! I am back at my desk and can’t wait to see what happens next! 2021 went flew by, but not without some really beautiful moment.

These are some of the images that fed my soul this year. We celebrated new life and made space for second chances. I witnessed friends be exceptional storytellers. I was mesmerized by seniors who I have know since they were children, step boldly into the people are becoming. I have prayed deep thanks for friends thriving and joyful, when only last year I didn’t know if they would still be alive. I found light and laughter and love in the faces and relationships all around me.

Thank you for inviting me in this past year. Thank you for the celebration and the rituals that we so desperately missed last year. There were too many amazing photos this year, nine just isn’t going to cover it.
