Pumpkin Delivery

Sunday, Sequoyah United Methodist Church in Fayetteville received the first of two truck-loads filled with pumpkins from Farmington, N.M. Church organizers were expecting approximately 70 volunteers to help unload the pumpkins – ranging in size from the size of your palm to ones as tall as your knee! It was cool to see the teamwork of all the volunteers as they made two huge lines and passes the pumpkins off from one person to the next. It sounds like the pumpkin path is quite popular in the neighborhood, so if you want first pick, you better get their quick! The second truck-load is expected in two weeks.

I'm originally from Colorado and I was introduced to photojournalism in high school while working on the school's yearbook. In 2011, I graduated from Colorado State University with degrees in journalism and art. This is my first “real-world” job, but while in college I worked for CSU's daily student newspaper and I interned for Denver-based Westword, the Colorado Eagles (ACHL hockey team) and Johnson and Wales University. I cherish analog photography and I like to shoot on a medium-format Mamyia RB67 whenever I can. While I'm not at work, I enjoy doing all sorts of physical activities, especially mud runs and Crossfit, and I love to bake desserts (which are usually consumed by my coworkers).
