It has been a grim and overwhelming year with all the tragedy happening in our world. The many deaths and afflictions have left me feeing sad, hopeless, and angry. In the midst of all of this, I have found it difficult to blog photoshoots as they have felt insignificant in light of all the disparity. Finding the inspiration to sit, write and blog has felt nothing less than strained and stilted.
And yet, what about the beauty that still remains? Is there a way to hold both tragedy and grace? I am learning that in this world, part of our homework assignment is to wrestle in the "in between," to be in the tension of life and death, love and loss, plenty and none, all the while, recognizing our own privilege.
A few months ago, I had the privilege of meeting a super star woman and gifted artist, Kadie Smith! I had been following her design work for a year and was really loving the logos she was cranking out! We met over Instagram and before we knew it, she was designing me a new logo and I was photographing her in her cozy Dallas studio with her calligrapher side-kick, Alli.
Here it is! My new site and logo and the photos from my shoot with Kadie!
