I'm so excited to share the first couple of images from my very first Written & Illustrated session! Kacey & Gary are getting ready to leave - TOMORROW - for three months in Malawi. Kacey is a Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellow at UNC, and was given the opportunity to go in order to provide much-needed medical and surgical expertise... an exciting challenge, to be sure, but a complicated one given that it meant putting her husband's career (and salary) on hold and transplanting her family - including her two young children - halfway around the world. Listening to their story and spending time with their family for our session was amazing... I know the images we captured will mean more, not only because there will be a written accompaniment, but also because getting to know them gave me a different, more authentic perspective through the lens. Looking through their images and beginning to piece their story together has been hugely validating, and I absolutely cannot wait to share the finished product with you all :D In the meantime, I hope you'll all join me in wishing them safe travels and lots of energy in the days ahead!
