This is a series of posts about my experience in Poland and Ukraine during the Russian military invasion and attempted takeover of Ukraine in 2022. Irpin is a quiet and modern city north of Kyiv. I had visited Irpin before the war and it was a great place. The buildings were new, the parks were nice, and I spent some time in the refugee center with Ukrainian refugees. Russia actually began its invasion of Ukraine in 2014 and throughout all that time, Ukrainians had their homes destroyed. This invasion was limited though to the Donbas region in the far east of the country, bordering Russia. In any case, some refugees had resettled in the peaceful and quiet city of Irpin.

On my travels I stopped by Nashville for some shoots. This is quite a city! Every restaurant downtown has a band playing and there are a lot of bachelorette parties happening there. I guess it’s the place for that. We even saw a black party hearse that had the roof removed and a bride-to-be and her girls were standing and dancing in the back with music going. That was the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while!
I recently spent some time doing some photoshoots in Jacksonville, Florida. It was a great place and had lots of cool vistas and backgrounds. This week I’ll be at a camp so I don’t have much time to post photos but I hope to get around to it soon!
