The enLIGHTen Project-Auction is now open!

Many months of work with our nonprofit, Kids of Kathmandu, have come down to this week!

I'm so pleased to announce that our 2nd Annual Fundraising Gala, The enLIGHTen Project, is now on!

We have 17 incredible lighting designers that have created and donated pieces for the auction that is now open! Andrew and I have been visiting their studios over the past couple months and photographing their process. It has been amazingly inspiring and fun to meet these talented people, the very top of the game...from California to New York, between (Idaho) and beyond (New Zealand). See pictures from these visits here!

I have to give a special shout out to my husband too who has been working so hard and was absolutely instrumental to putting this elite list together. (and did a light of his own too which i love!) Its been so much fun to work on this together combining everything we love into + good people+ photography + the kids in Nepal. really, what else is there?! well, there's sleep and balanced meals....but...

We also have opened this year's photo sale to other photographers and invited 4 amazing photographers including New York Times Magazine photographer Alessandra Petlin and well-followed writer and photographer and Green Energy Advisor to Kids of Kathmandu, Kashish Das Shrestha, to share the walls with me. I'm so happy with our lineup and respect the work these photographers have done and continue to do in Nepal.

Visit the new website, buy tickets for May 17th, or bid online for the auction.

The proceeds of The enLIGHTen Project are going to purchase and install solar panels, batteries, and inverters for the orphanage we support in Nepal. It will also continue to go towards the education of these 49 children to whom we have given our word.

Thanks for all of your support! Hope to see you at the Gala!
