Month In Pictures: September 2016

by Krista Hall

It has been a while since we posted a "Month in Pictures" blog post. In May, I had a baby and was on leave until the end of July. It was a much-needed break from photography and I feel like I've returned to work refreshed.

This post really represents a couple of months in pictures. I've pulled some of my favorites since returning back to work. I've been lucky that we have had so many special events at Saint Meinrad since July: the abbatial blessing, monastic professions, alumni reunion, the beginning of the school year.

I think being able to take a break every once in a while can help a person become more focused and energized for the work in front of them. And in my case, as a photographer, it leads to more creativity.

Hope you enjoy these selections.
