“What would our lives be like if our days and nights were as immersed in nature as they are in technology?”
― Richard Louv, The Nature Principle: Human Restoration and the End of Nature-Deficit Disorder
“We have such a brief opportunity to pass on to our children our love for this Earth, and to tell our stories. These are the moments when the world is made whole. In my children’s memories, the adventures we’ve had together in nature will always exist.”― Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder
As Nature Connection Mentor as well as photographer, I spend half my time engaging in play, exploration, nurturing compassion, connection, resilience with the children. And then, the other half is spent in a kind of quiet awe, observing the many ways that time in nature, with lose parts, vast spaces, trees, rocks, pouring rain, darting squirrels absorbs the children so completely and draws out all manner of learning. I feel very lucky to do the work I do and to be able to witness and record the rich diversity of learning that can happen outdoors.
If you are interested in knowing more about my offerings as a mentor or as a photographer, I’d love to hear from you!
warmly and wildly,
