Well its here... 2017. A LOT happened in 2016. I'm my life and all around me. It was an awesome year for the most part. There were some WTF moments though. I'm sure I'm not the only one with this sentiment.
I figured out how important it is to go back and reflect on the year and jot some of the high moments and low moments that happened. I have my friend Ben Messner to thank for helping me get to paper what I needed in order to 'move on' to 2017 with a clean slate so to speak.
Ben had me do an exercise that supposedly is about a 3-5 hour exercise and I am not ashamed to admit its taken me weeks to complete. Mostly cause I couldn't get past the first month of 2016. I think it set the tone for the rest of the year for me. Read More
Philadelphia was were I was born. It was were my love for music was birthed. It was also were a lot of very painful things happened, one of which was losing my mom. And every time I think about coming back to my hometown of Philadelphia I cringe. But the more time goes on, the more and more I heal, and the more and more I don't mind it. I'm really proud to have been born in this city despite everything that has happened... Read More
This was by far one of the most impactful photo shoots I've done to date. Probably because this baby is an answer to prayer.
Here is what Mitch & Karena had to say about their experience: "After 10 yrs of gutting wrenching infertility, several failed adoptions and losing hope daily about being parents, God answered our prayers with a little miracle! Since we waited so long we didn't want to miss a moment of this precious time and we are so grateful to have... Read More
I've seen this family grow in size and height, and to my surprise when I was visiting them in Oregon just a few months ago, I got the news that they were expecting (first shot was taken right after I found out)! Read More
A few weeks ago I went to visit some really good friends of mine in Lebanon, PA. I wasn't expecting the scenery that I got the privilege of viewing and capturing. I was amazed at the beauty I got to see. I stayed in the area for 6 days and it was very relaxing and we were not too far away from Hershey, PA. If you ever end up in the area, visit the downtown Lebanon. There's a really cool Farmer's Market that is open for only a few days out of the week. Be sure to grab some salted caramel chocolates and if you like sushi, on the second floor there is a spot that serves up great sushi for an incredible bargain! Below are a few photos... Read More
The other day I woke up thinking about Abraham (the image of the boy featured on this post). He's 8 years old.
I met him earlier this year when I went to Nicaragua with a small group of people.
He ran over to greet me with a smile and ask for my photo.
I said "sure, but I must have you're photo as well so I don't forget you!". He shook his head with a smile and said, "yes!" (We communicated all this in Spanish) Read More
When I was in Canada a few weeks ago, I texted one of my mentors, Hans Johnson, a few photos I had taken. This photo below I sent him and he said "Wow that's freakin' amazing!" Read More
I ran into a lot of bridges on my trip. I kept thinking about the song "Bridge Over Troubled Waters." If my heart can hear, I kept hearing "Sail on silvergirl...Sail on by" Kind of gave me strength to keep going seeing so many bridges...Gave me strength to keep dreaming and keep doing. One thing to dream and not do anything...another to dream and not being afraid to go after...not afraid to chase after... Read More
Hi! My name is Isa Agape. I just started doing photography (about 2.5 months). Not too long, but I absolutely love it. It has taken me to a few beautiful places already and I’m excited for what is to come. Aside from that I am a singer/songwriter. I’ve recorded a few records. Read More
