On this International Women's Day, I'm honored to be a part of Tether Tools' How I Got the Shot: Women's Edition Guide featuring 30 creative and passionate photographers! You can download the guide for free at www.TetherTools.com/Guide and head to page 25 for a behind-the-scenes video showing the full image and how I created it, the concept for the shoot, and more details about how I got the shot.
With everything going on in the world (between natural disasters, mass murders, and...well...justeveryday challenges), I've been thinking about the ways in which people have been a blessing to me and how I can be a blessing to others. Sometimes being a blessing involves making a financial donation or physically stepping in to do some heavy lifting. Other times, it may be as simple and powerful as offering a genuine smile and encouraging words. I was excited that the fall CAUSEBOX challenged me to think of what bold statement I wanted to make. I decided to keep it simple: "Be a Blessing." What I love about CAUSEBOX is that it introduces me to a host of companies that do social good.
