I love the ocean!

I love the ocean so much sometimes I feel like I am going to burst! The world is so beautiful and each new place we go is so unique, I can't get enough!

Shoe ministry

Today Blaine and I went and visited a small community of tin roofed huts on Isla Mujeres with our friends the Sniders. They have a ministry that raises support to buy shoes for the kids in need of them. We had the opportunity to buy some ourselves and go and give them away. Here are a few pics...

Whats not to love about Mexico?

Here are a few shots that I have taken over the past few days in no particular order.

tropical storms

Well, the sun has been a bit more elusive the past few days, and actually as I was preparing this post Blaine came running in all excited that he saw a tornado over the ocean as he grabbed the camera gear. Man did it rain! The clouds made for more interesting photos anyway :) The colors have been all over the place and beautiful! I love weather!

mexico arrival

Blaine and I have the awesome opportunity to shoot a wedding and combine that with visiting some friends and doing some other travels in the Yucatan this month. It feels so good to be back in the sun and the sand for a bit :)

The River

Blaine and I are home now, but I still wanted to finish out sharing the trip with you all. The next photos were taken on a portion of the Mekong River in Cambodia. This little floating village is made up of mostly Vietnamese refugees who don't belong to any country. They are hated by the Cambodians and their own country men. Most of the children that Remember Nhu has taken in have come from this area. 70% of the girls from age 3-20 are sold into the sex trade.
