LAINA BOWEN || PHOTOGRAPHER
 

I love || morning light hours, finding kindred spirits, the color blue, anything & everything C.S. Lewis, seeing people smile with their eyes, traveling, novels with a happy ending, exploring the unknown, finding out peoples' Myers-Briggs personality type, nights at the symphony, breathing in a moment, finding identity and worth in the power of Christ alone, original b+w prints, people-watching at airports, camping under starry skies, when people feel like home, poetry of the heartfelt kind, late night conversation, tight hugs, music played from the heart. 

 

MIA DIMARE || PHOTOGRAPHER
 

I love || the Gospel, finding a perfect pen, windblown hair, logophilia, sautéing all of the things, the look people give me when I tell them that I'm 50% Dominican, minimalism, green tea lattes, blasting car speakers to absurd volumes, my mother's homemade quiche, early morning runs, theology, mountain air,  psychoanalyzing people, playing the piano after a long day, everything about the 90's, melancholy foreign films, the sovereignty of God, black coffee, bass notes, spontaneity, Gilmore Girls, classical music, the Dictionary.com app, sarcasm, acoustic concerts, the key of E minor. 

JILLIAN BOWEN || CINEMATOGRAPHER
 

I love || the unshakable grounding of God's Word, the Atlantic Coast, heart-to-hearts with dear friends, long road trips, (basically anywhere), "inventive” baking, thrifting, hospitality, the overwhelming power of our Savior's grace, camaraderie with fellow creatives, rooibos loose-leaf, entrepreneurialism, the great outdoors, crisp fall air, creative writing, Audrey Hepburn films, eating greens, all things artsy, family, ultimate frisbee, overseas + multicultural experiences, visual storytelling, forever resting in my anthem and life-breath, the Gospel.
