Featured on Life & Thyme

Today on Life & Thyme I share the story of a man who went from a life of hopelessness to hope and how his food cart has become a source of inspiration to many Nepalis. You can view it here.

Diaries of Nepal 18 // Matatirtha, Nepal

I’m sad that this post marks one of my very last posts of the like. Yet rejuvenated it means the beginning of a new kind. The past 8 months of my journey have been mostly about absorbing the culture as it has come to me – capturing  scenery, different perspectives and everyday life here. Coming up in a few weeks I will begin sharing a different angle to my time here…more focused angles to life in Nepal including stories and themes that have been meaningful to me.

Over the course of my stay in Nepal I have really begun to explore the meaning of what the “joy of the journey” looks like. In life, many times we feel like giving up, but it’s when we choose to carry on that we find our greatest strengths and our greatest victories. Due to the length of my stay here, I’ve been able to visit more than one village twice to get a deeper glimpse into what authentic life really looks like for some of these people. This time, it was Matatirtha village (“mother sacred place” in Nepali). See first post here. About an hour’s bus-ride away from Kathmandu city, Matatirtha is situated at the foot of a jungle covered mountain where tigers and deer have been spotted. The village sees several inches of rain each year and fresh water from the mountain serves a basic need of the inhabitants. Water, though plenty here, is one of the many natural resources that have yet to be better managed in Nepal. That day it rained so I was honored to be able to capture some of my first photos of my subjects “in the rain”. I hope you will enjoy.

I’ll be back at the start of June to resume wedding and portrait sessions. To book your session, e-mail me here.

Diaries of Nepal 17 // Kathmandu

 I’m a really strong believer in the fact that the journey is what makes us. Our journey to Nepal hasn’t always been the easiest, but it’s been an amazing one, one that we’ll never regret having.

This month marks 7 months since my original and first post featuring photos on Nepal…Kathmandu more specifically. I am excited to share Kathmandu from a different lens 7 months…or 30 weeks…or 212 days later.

Diaries of Nepal 16 // Chapa Gao Village

The life of an artist is often unexpected but mostly it’s one big epic adventure. A short bus-ride away from Nakhipot lies Chapa Gao village. Village visits are my favorite parts of each week. Each village we visit is a window into each of the people we go to visit.  A few weeks ago we took a day to investigate this quaint little town and collect a bit of research for Rob’s project. Here’s a short glimpse into what we discovered.

Diaries of Nepal 10 // Kathmandu, Nepal

In Nepal, some things are a little different and some things never do change. A few months ago, various circumstances brought me to a few memorable places around Kathmandu Valley among them Machapucha Village, Koteshor, and New Road.  I am so grateful for the experiences, and am changed for the better.
