This summer's trip to Venezuela.

This summer has been extremely busy with weddings, magazine deadlines, visiting family, and graduate school. But one of my most memorable moments of the summer was traveling to Venezuela to shoot photos for a documentary my husband was in charge of. It was through traveling to Latin America where the love for photography really developed into a passion when I was younger...so, I felt as if I was going back to the root of my passion this summer. It was AWESOME!!!! The documentary was about Hepatitis B in Venezuela and I got to tag along and shoot photos for their promotion pieces. It was awesome! We traveled to a small villages and filmed people and their stories about the battle of their illness. it was a whirlwind summer trying to meet deadline after deadline but so well worth all the experiences I had. I thought I would post a few of my most memorable moments So, here they are:

Something about these big brown eyes.

Doesn't she look like she has so much history and wisdom in her face?

Loved this expression.

This is the car we traveled back and forth from town to town.

I thought it was interesting to see so many young pregnant women sitting on a bench.
