About


When I crossed the pond during university, I made special care to visit my grandfather's home country of Malta - a small, cozy group of islands in the middle of the Mediterranean. Barely touched by tourism and kept in pristine condition, it was honestly the most beautiful place I'd ever seen. Both pride and a sense of belonging instantly started coursing through me upon arrival. I had literally brought my blood back to its origin, which was monumental for me.
I tell this story to everyone I know, including my long-term best friend and girlfriend, Lindsey. She gets particularly invested in any parts of my stories that point to my lineage and that feeling of belonging. Since day one, I have wanted to give that feeling to her. I've wanted her to know what it feels like to imagine your long lost ancestors walking the streets you're on or to look up birth records of your great, great, great grandfather in the church that bears your name. This trip would include both Scotland and Malta, the cities of our clans and family names, and a few distant relatives if we can dig deep enough.
That's where you come in. I'm 24, fresh out of school and fresh in a new home. I know that I realistically can't afford to do this for her for very a long time. That's why I've decided to put my photography and travel blogging skills to good use and offer you something unique. I want you to be a part of this; to be involved in Love And Lineage. Allow me to show you my love for her, for our ancestry, and for the the care I put into my work.
Each participant will have access to us via live communication, daily updates, and a collection at the end. I can't thank you enough. Peace and love.
