Of these two opposing forces: darkness and light, light always wins. Darkness cannot exist where light exists. Where light shines, darkness hides away. I love that. Light really isn’t at war at all. It inherently carries the authority.
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
John 1:5 NIV
Yesterday was one of the good days. We celebrated my cousin getting married ( traditional wedding ), I got to hangout with my family, ate lots of Ugandan food, laugh a lot and danced until 4am. Of course there was stress but good out weighs the bad. If you know more about my story then you know that my relationship with my family has been a journey so days like these are valued. #socality#socalitytoronto#socalityontario

Just hoping #GOT isn’t a huge disappointment tonight 🙃
Not ready to see this beautiful weekend come to an end ☀️ Thankful for another year of sleeping all piled in a tent and falling asleep to the sound of the river, singing and eating around the fire, wearing our puffy paint t-shirts, hiking up mountains and keeping traditions going. Love being in my favorite place with my favorite people 💛 Here’s to GSME still going strong for years to come 🎉
I had the opportunity to take an incredible trip to Seattle, Washington and Vancouver, Canada this past week. I seriously couldn’t get over the beauty of the North West... •
Though I took many photographs (which I am excited to show everyone), I found myself wanting to take it all in and experience the moment... without the camera. •
As a photographer, I constantly feel a pull between wanting to capture “photographable” moments and wanting to experience them firsthand. I often struggle with the regret of not capturing that incredible mountain or that golden sunset. •
Recently, I’ve had to remind myself that it is perfectly okay to set the camera aside and experience life as it is. Because there will be many more “photographable” moments to come.. some of which should be captured and some of which should not. •
➡️How do y’all balance between the two?

This is one of my favorite moments captured to date. I tried to get a posed shot of @mellathepup and @shortstache together, and after I told them I got the shot (which ended up being out of focus anyways), they ran off and I decided to capture a few more frames not really knowing what I was shooting. This is the magic of photography for me, capturing moments that might have gone unnoticed.👍

I don’t need to make a million, to feel like a million. // Life’s all about the lens in which you look at it through... Regardless of our bank account, the car we whip, and the clothes we wear, nothing will have you feeling like a million than a purpose being fulfilled! // I’m my own vibe/mood, swipe left. 🤙🏽
Now hiring: Instagram husband. My current one has been making a valiant effort, but the camera roll is dark and full of outtakes 😂💀💙 managed to salvage a few good ones from the carnage, because this outfit was too cute not to document 🤦🏼♀️ Loved spending the weekend with family celebrating my sister, but am thrilled to be back home in Seattle with my dog and with my kitchen full of veggies 🙌🏼🥕 Hope your weekend was lovely and all your faves stay alive on #gameofthrones 😂😘

We make little decisions every day that add up and direct the course of our lives. And then every once in a while, we make a really big decision that has the potential to change everything. 2 and a half years ago when I was applying for grad school I had no idea if this was the right path or where it would lead. I just knew in my soul that it was something God wanted me to do.
I wish I could have seen then where I’m at now. The last two years changed almost everything about my life— from how I think about and see the world to how I understand my own story and purpose that has come out of things I’ve been through. It has changed where I live and work and shed light on my career path which is definitely still a work in progress (thanks faith and a passion for ministry)
In the last two years I have met and become close to some of the most inspiring, beautiful, authentic and loving people. I’ve learned that friendship can go so much deeper than I ever knew. I have a renewed hope in how much good there is in the world because of my coworkers, classmates and friends.
Needless to say, that decision to go to Boston University School of Social Work is the best one I’ve ever made. Because it’s brought me all of this. And a masters degree is cool too 👩🏽🎓
Not sure how I feel about this one, but this sure is one incredible waterfall.
I was lucky enough to visit this place for the second time this spring. Though it was heartbreaking to see the after effects of all of the fires from the past couple years, it’s still one of the most beautiful places around.
