I recently had the opportunity to travel to Eastern Africa to the country of Ethiopia to shoot a bit. I was so excited to go back to Africa and get to experience the amazing people and once again be reminded of how blessed I am.
I had such a great time capturing some incredible moments as well as taking in God's creation.

  1. Oh steal my heart! So beautiful! What a gift to be able to share! I especially love the woman down on her knee.

  2. Wow Casey, those are truly amazing! My favorite is the woman kneeling down. I don't know if she is a mother but all I could think when looking at her is, here we are, two women a world a part, who probably both want the same thing for our families and are both loved by the one true God. Thanks for sharing these!

  6. The first image is truly glorious and I just stared at it for ages.
    Then the rest came scrolling by and I was amazed - this is book-worthy photography - A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!

    You have captured not only the essence of a place but of the people who lived there - this is a gift worth sharing.

    Thank you

    xx Felicity

  44. Really gorgeous! He is very talented....we brought our baby boy home from Ethiopia last December and these pictures made me well up. It reminded me just how blessed we are to have one of those sweet souls as a part of our family. With little or nothing in the eyes of the world, and yet those gorgeous, proud eyes and caramel skin. Thanks for the photo reminder.....
    would he, by any chance, be selling a copy of any of the landscapes? I'd love to put a collection of landscape pics together in my sons room. Perhaps to benefit an adoption...of your own sweet Ethiopian? :P Anyway....please let me know if buying any of those is ever an option!
    Thanks for the reminder. I think I'll go kiss his sleeping forehead.

    Sad that I'm behind the loop. It's been a stressful week. First time on the computer in days. Thank heavens for smart phones or I'd never know what was going on at all!

  52. These pictures are absolutely stunning. I came here from Little Miss Momma and I'm smitten. You and your family are so gorgeous. Your writing speaks to my heart and just makes me happy. I've been to Ethiopia twice and these pictures just tug on my heart to go back already. I'm returning in October and I cannot wait to try to capture half the emotion and stories he did. I'm so happy that I found your blog, it is so lovely. =]

  61. Great one! Purple sky shows the real beauty of nature. I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Exquisite photographs! It is true that sometimes we need to go somewhere else for a while to realize how blessed and fortunate we are, because we certainly take so much granted. My husband and I have both been to Honduras on mission trips and it really does make you stop and think about so much - we are truly rich and we don't even realize it.
