My good friend Jessica Peterson , (the one who takes all of the amazing pictures of Axel) is in Africa right now, and has been photographing some pictures of refugee orphanages she is visiting.
I was really nervous for the sadness I would see there, like a lot of the ones you see from other photographers, and in documentaries, but like everything she really knows how to bring life and beauty to her subjects. Not that the subject isn't still sad, but she captures these little souls so beautifully, each picture is just inspiring in a I want to help and get involved kinda way.
I admire her so much, she is one of those beautiful souls, and I feel so blessed to have her in my life. But if you get a minute hop on over to her blog, really do its so breath taking, and also there are ways you can get involved to help these children.
The great thing is she posts at least every day so you get to be there in the moment with her. So worth your time.

**I stole the picture of her above from her blog because I think that captures her perfectly, and she is always behind the lens.
