Reflections of Creation

One of the greatest things that God has given humans is the ability to see beauty in the world around us. I have never noticed my dog stop and stare at the beauty of a forest or the incredible colors of a sunset, but these things have the ability to stop me in my tracks in wonder and awe. This website is my attempt to capture some of the beauty and glory of an indescribable God by capturing reflections of Him that I see in His creation.


for Carissa

Warning: rambly blog post ahead.

A few months ago, I started following the story of a teenage girl named Carissa Fluke. She missed the last few days of school when she was a freshman, and they then found a rare form of leukemia which has evidently been very hard to treat. She went through intense treatments at locations around the country. Carissa is a Christian, and someone who loves God more than life itself and used this as an opportunity to show the world how much Jesus means to her. Throughout the whole ordeal, Carissa never lost her faith and continued to point people to Jesus. I would get updates on an email list, and I would find myself inspired by her every few days when the emails would arrive.

Yesterday, Carissa lost her short battle with the leukemia (I'm sure it felt like an eternity to her and her family). Yet, this young lady is now the most incredible place in the world -- with Jesus Christ whom she loves so much. I hope all of you reading this know Jesus and have a relationship with Him. If you don't please send me a message anytime, and I would be glad to talk to you about it.

And Carissa, I wish I could see what you're seeing right now, girl. We love you!

the most important part of this website

I enjoy photography and I always find myself wanting more time to be outside with a camera. The idea of posting my pictures was born out of the love for my wife, Alison (, who hates it when I do not take my days off. This website, reflections of creation, is a way to force me to get out of the office from time to time and putting me outside where I love to be. While a creative outlet for me, I hope this is an encouraging site for you, and one which helps point you to the Creator of all this beauty around us. God is so much bigger and amazing than we could ever imagine, and He loves you and me! What an amazing thought! He loves us so much that He was even willing to let His son, Jesus, die as a sacrifice for us. That fact is more beautiful than any picture you will see on this website. I hope you know Jesus, but if you do not, please email me or go to Thanks again for coming and stop by again soon.
