“If you have only one smile in you give it to the people you love.”
Maya Angelou

With Valentine’s day upon us, many are celebrating love in some way. Be it the love for a child, the love for their partner or love for the world around us. This month we challenged our Lowepro Storytellers to show us what “love” looks like to them.

What is love? For many people love could mean the everlasting love for someone, something, someplace, it’s endless! One of the many things I love to do is to escape the work week by being engulfed in natures lovely arms. I call it Neverland.

Moments before Christine & Jordan were married, they exchanged love letters.  They wanted to save their first look for the aisle, so exchanged letters around the corner of the church, sight unseen.  Not a word was said as the read each other’s letter, but the expressions, tears, and emotions revealed the depth of what love is…

Love is playful, sweet, and unconditional. Weddings like this, one filled with so much joy, was a beautiful reminder. May we all find and experience this kind of love.

Love is having a blast with a friend!

From my February personal photo project, “28 Days of Toy Stories.”  Although 2017 was fantastic on a professional level, I really want to commit to creating more personal work in 2018. This photo project was a way for me to jumpstart that.

Love is sharing my life with Kathryn Dyer who was diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago.  I love this picture of her as the umbrella symbolizes shelter and protection which is what I try to do for her as we enjoy the beauty in each and every day!
