There is so much power in realizing that we control our circumstances. We cultivate negativity or positivity, we let our world crumble from within or we build it from within. It is too easy to feel like the cracks we see forming in our lives were put there from other people, but that is so rarely the case. The way we choose to deal with our situations can create those cracks or it can erase...

“I was mortified by the prospect of becoming hopelessly trapped in someone else's story.” ― Lionel Shriver

The idea of entrapment is fascinating to me. To be out of control and incapable all at once is not only physical. We are too often trapped in another version of ourselves that, at our heart of hearts, we know we shouldn't be. It is someone else's vision, and when we lock ourselves into a...

“Everywhere was connected to everywhere else" - Terry Pratchett

In our brokenness we search; in our wholeness we fall to dust.

I have arrived back in India to begin 3 more workshops for sex trafficking survivor communities. Send your kind thoughts this way that they are meaningful and healing <3
Darkness is a place that calls out to us, asking for a light to be brought into her depths so that she might see what she is made of.

Today I finished a self-expression workshop in Thailand (I'm writing from the jungle outside of Chiang Mai) that I'll be able to share more about soon. My hope is twofold, that the work I'm doing here can help empower the young women (specifically working with...

Darkness may surround, but the key we search for is within. There is no need for light when you turn your eye inward. There in the darkness your soul knows where everything is hidden.

Create your own fairytale today. Fit yourself into a magical story. Make it up if you have to - make it up even if you don't. Our imaginations are the most incredible tools. They see to it that we can dream of...

“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” ― Ernest Hemingway

To me, true growth is letting who you used to be fade away while nurturing something new from the ashes. One of our greatest gifts is the ability to change. So many run away from it. So many would see their former self getting buried under the weight of...

Let your self of yesterday walk the backward road to dwell in moments already lived. Let your tomorrow self walk ever forward to greet the unknown that beckons every searching heart. ​Let curiosity name your journey; she will never settle on just one.

I feel extraordinarily fortunate this new year to be traveling to NY, India and Thailand this month. I will be gone for 3 1/2 weeks to see my...

“Nothing can be inside an edgeless universe.” ― Toba Beta

I have long listened to people around me talk about the limits that hold them down when they want to do something different with their lives, but I choose to believe in a limitless world. Constraints exist, setbacks and hardships are abundant, but limits are something we create for ourselves. Realize that you can break free and there...

I decided that if I had to sum up 2016 in one word it would be: commitment. This image is the end of a daily self-portrait challenge, but for me it extends beyond that. I committed to creating my first meaningful fine art series, I committed to finishing my novel, I committed to starting a school in India, and I committed myself more than ever to my business. Most of all I feel committed to my...

I am participating in a self-portrait challenge for the month of December, so every day no matter what I go out and create a self-portrait...even when I'm traveling, too busy, or life gets in the way. It has been a miracle for me. I spent October/November in a bit of a funk, and this method of creativity has entirely lifted me into a whole new level of happiness. I'm editing my picture now for...

I woke up to a white Christmas and immediately went out into the cold, poofy dress and snow boots in combination. It was still dark out so I wandered through the snowy paths until the first deep blue light shone enough for me to take a picture.

Each and every day is a chance to leave behind the person you were and become the person you want to be. We are often reminded of this more on...

I was eating lunch with my friend yesterday and she asked if I feel overwhelmed by all of the things looming that I want to do. I thought about it for a moment and then answered "no", though the real answer is "sometimes". We all do - sometimes - but for me it is pretty rare nowadays. I started thinking about why I don't feel like my head is about to explode more often, since I have a lot of...

To come into our power. What an amazing mantra to keep in mind. We are all powerful beyond measure, I believe that truly. We are all pent up energy that wants to ring out loudly like thunder. I have heard so many people saying this year that they want to help but can't, that they want to feel powerful or like they make a difference but they simply don't. I get it, so much. I understand what it...

Growing up I wanted to do two things with my life: I wanted to write and I wanted to teach. Photography has been an added bonus in the lineup of my dreams and I am so happy that all of those things come together so beautifully to create an even bigger experience.

I've slowed down a lot with teaching, only giving a few workshops next year for select organizations. One of them is the...

Creating is most rewarding when you have failed at bringing your vision to life but keep trying anyway. Such is the case with this image. This was my fifth try at bringing the idea to life. Little things kept going wrong, like posing and matching elements and even the flick of the dress, or the clouds not being quite the right ones. There are levels of joy that build up in a trial and error...

Just before I drove home from California last weekend I had an urge to see the ocean. I knew it would add an hour on to my already 8 hour drive, but the pull of it was so strong and my camera battery was full so I decided to go. If you have ever gotten lost in your own particular bliss you will understand my feelings that day.

I sat down in the water and prepared to lay back, feeling the...
