These last few months, we have had the privilege of working with this amazing organization, @freethegirlsbras. They are bringing women in off the streets and helping them start their own businesses selling bras. Their creative approach to giving these women both freedom and stability is inspiring to us and we are thankful to have traveled the world with them. Excited for what is to come for this great organization and the women leaders they are raising up. #freethegirls

“Whenever you are creating beauty in the world, you are restoring your own soul.” - Alice Walker
This could not feel any truer right now. The more I embrace my own desire to create beautiful things in the world, the more whole I feel.

Why the Enneagram is rocking my view of myself and the world right now - if you have been around my posts, you have seen me say I am a type 4 (wing 3). And if you know anything about the Enneagram - maybe your thinking now that you are less inclined to be friends with me. Emotional, moody, withdrawn artist, pretentious... not the greatest of descriptions and actually the first time I listened to the chapter in The Road Back to You, I decided I was not a four.... but then I listened again. Caring, empathetic, creative, handles loss well... What I started seeing, were my emotions clearer than I ever had before. The Enneagram looks at motivations, not behaviors. So, people say it is a hoax because who could be narrowed down to a number, my response is to listen to the book and think not about how you act, because that changes with each season, but think of WHY you act the way you do. In these last few weeks since my listening to the book (thanks @audible_books), I have seen myself clearer than I ever had. Recognizing my emotions (all the highs and lows) and when I just need to take a breath and realize that stressor isn’t as bad as I thought. Or this week, in some of that same stress of lots of to-dos, recognizing when I need to tap into my inner 3. I too thought this can’t be right, I can’t be that bad, but learning to recognize my weaknesses has helped me to have power over them, and knowing my strengths has helped me to tap into them more. Some people hate personality assessments and I get it. This isn’t just some personality test though, it is hundreds of years research and study while watching us humans try and survive together, and my take on the Enneagram is it is teaching us how to do that well. No, this is not a paid advertisement for the Enneagram - it is just helping me so much I think it could for you too. And if you are interested, skip the online tests, and head straight for the books. They say you will know your type by the negative qualities that make you cringe most - and from my assessment- that is so right! Listen (or read), enjoy, and learn to live life better. It is worth it. ✌🏽photog: @kscheffe

Women of my state, Arunachal Pradesh are very very hard working and work hard equally like a man does or maybe there's no comparison at all. In villages, from cutting firewoods deep into the forest to bringing it home carrying on their back is a day to day scene.. from doing every household chores while still carrying their babies on back. Let me tell you.. women in Northeast India have been carrying their babies since time immemorial. It's nowadays a fashion and vogue to carry babies using those bags. The women there have been doing it using just a shawl or any long piece of cloth! .
This particular picture is somwhere in Tirap District of Arunachal Pradesh and they are from my tribe NOCTE. Going back home with happiness on their backs. .

PS: This particular basket is called Buan in my dialect NOCTE. Men's basket is different with a different name.. called Tong. Every tribe has different names for it

Tahmineh Ghamkhar is a #journalist with Mehr #News #Agency. She is attached with the #International #Relations Department of the agency that is one of many news agencies operating in the #Islamic #Republic of #Iran. It is rare to see woman journalists in countries which practised the #syariah #Islamic #laws strictly. But surprisingly, in Iran, there are many #woman journalists. And they do their job like their counterparts outside Iran, interviewing and mixing with people in public places irrespective of their gender, attending events without being segregated from male guests and they move freely. #natgeowomen #womenempowerment #womenstyle #womenpower #laprensa #media #press #liberal #free #freedom #tehran #women

"Here you go, baby," Magda (pictured) scoops a serving of soup out of one of the giant trash cans hauled here in the back of her truck. She plops it into the little boy's bowl and gives his head a quick rub before digging her spoon back into the trash can. Sweat trickles down her cheek and she wipes it off with the back of her hand.
.
“Aunty Magda" Meyer has a gentle word for each of her "babies" but she keeps the line moving quickly and, between serving, her eyes are scanning the surrounding shacks and broken down buildings.
.
The day before we were here, a social worker was caught in the crossfire of a gang squabble here and shot. But that isn't about to stop Magda from serving her soup. | South Africa, February 2018 #documentaryphotography #photographyforgood

I may be untangling my ponytail with my fingers because I *may* have forgotten to pack a hairbrush (don’t judge), but I love this photo because it was taken while my little photographer protege Justina was tutoring another kid on the fundamentals of photography and how to operate a camera! The student becoming the teacher — you can see them in my sunglasses. | Zambia, August 2018 #PhotographyforGood

In attempts to create a community around here, I figured I would step outside the box and post a bit about myself. No it isn’t Friday (which I think is the day people post about themselves or something like that) but being an Enneagram type 4 - that works out perfectly since I like doing my own thing. So, here are 5 fun things about me - and I want to know you so share below something about you!
1. I love dogs - specifically, Golden Retrievers. We had a dog named Sam and Charlie growing up and I am counting down the days to getting another.
2. A few years ago I left a great job in PA to follow a dream, and in the two years that followed, I lived in Virginia, Oregon, Florida, and Colorado. So much driving!
3. Currently, I live in Mississippi but am about to move to Phoenix, AZ! Bring on the desert heat!
4. Growing up, I wanted to be a marine biologist and work with National Geographic. I was so serious about this that I gave up eating fish and seafood because it didn’t feel right. I don’t get sick anymore when I eat Salmon but I still have an insane love for the sea.
5. And since that time, I thought I was going to be an actress for a while, a nurse, a counselor, and then a writer/photographer - which is honestly perfect because with my job I get to interact with lots of different types of passions which I love!
Ok, that’s all but seriously would love to know something new about you as well! Comment below!

I have been more silent on Instagram lately. Taking a step back felt important to me because truthfully, something about this platform never felt right to me. As an artist, I love sharing my work. As a storyteller, I love hopefully opening someone’s eyes to the life of another across the world. As a humanitarian, I love the idea of striking compassion in someone’s heart for another through a photo. But this platform drives me nuts. I hate the idea of someone following me just so I will follow them back. I refuse to do it. And I hate the idea of commenting on someone’s photo just so I can get something in return. I hate the idea of traveling somewhere to post a photo of myself just to receive some attention. Someone once told me, to treat social media and those on it like I would a friend. I want to comment because it is genuine and their work is good. I want to post because that place or event moved me and it is meaningful to share. I will not and do not want to use this platform selfishly. That might not make sense, because I am still sharing my work - but even in that, I want to share my work in hopes that it will move someone or bless that person in the photo and in turn, yes I definitely receive something. The point is, I want to treat this place like my community, my people, which is full of give and take and authenticity and respect. Not just a platform of consumerism, where I can just take and pretend that just because we aren’t engaging in person, that I can’t hurt someone through this platform. What I am trying to say is, if you just followed me so I would follow you back - you came to the wrong place. And if you are looking for community, somewhere to connect, even through this weird space of Instagram, leave a comment and I would love to engage! I would rather a small community who genuinely cares about me and I them - than a sea of disingenuous followers and ‘automatic’ likes. And what freedom that brings.

Hwange National Park is the largest natural reserve in Zimbabwe and was founded in 1928. Many people became familiar with it in July 2015 when Cecil, a lion who had lived on Hwange National Park for 13 years, was killed by a hunter. Getting to hear the stories of Cecil and the rest of his pride from Calvet, a guide who has spent over 20 years loving this land and these lions, was really incredible. | Zimbabwe, August 2018

“It’s very challenging but rewarding,” says Kevin, who has served as an instructor in languages at the Erin H. Gilmore School for Blind and Visually Impaired Children for nine years and has vision loss himself. He sums up the Salvation Army’s mission for the school well: “To know that when the kids leave at the end of the day, you’ve given them something they can take with them to make their lives better — that’s what this is for.” | Bahamas, April 2018 #photojournalism #bahamas

In one corner of the main room of the schools, connecting all the different classrooms, is a washing machine and a dryer. In another, you can find a pile of sneakers. That’s because in addition to topics like reading and math, children are taught basic life skills when they come to school.
.
“Most people don’t think about it, but things that people with sight take for granted, can be terrifying for a child who cannot see,” one of the teachers told me. “There can be a lot of fear if you don’t know what something is or where it is. We teach kids these skills that can otherwise be scary — like washing clothes, talking on the phone, or even just lacing up their shoes.” | Bahamas, April 2018 #photojournalism #bahamas

Statistics on vision loss in the Caribbean are difficult to find and widely disparate depending on sources. All analysis agrees on one thing though: most of it is preventable. One of the main reasons why the Caribbean has such a high prevalence of avoidable blindness is simply the extreme shortage of eye health professionals across the region.
.
Until that shortage is addressed, the Salvation Army is stepping into the gap and caring for children with vision loss. They run the Erin H. Gilmore School for Blind and Visually Impaired Children in coordination with the local government, to provide specialized education and life skills programs for children who otherwise would have a difficult time getting their education needs met on the island. | Bahamas, April 2018 #PhotographyForGood #photojournalism #bahamas

Math lesson | “Four and three together like this is what? Forty three that’s right. This number is forty three.” Small hands and big hands, mixing together, student and teacher. Feeling the colorful foam numbers. Head thrown back as he sees with his fingers.
.
The Bahamas may be known for its beautiful beaches and tourist destinations, but the Salvation Army’s division here is known for its work with the blind and visually impaired — an effort that began back in 1932. Getting to witness some of that work when I shot for them earlier this year was such a privilege. | Bahamas, April 2018 #PhotographyForGood #photojournalism #bahamas
