Faith In America- A week in Arizona with Scott Jarvie

Have you heard of the Faith in America Project? It is a project that was successfully funded by Kickstarter that is allowing my brother, Scott Jarvie, to travel to all 50 states and photograph religious buildings of all faiths.

This past week he has been in my home state of Arizona so I went and took pictures with him multiple days. It was fun having my brother here and to learn from him, especially using the tripod.

And my favorite, cause I love his happy expression and the church is in the picture!

We even got to do some of the inside, accompanied by the organ practicing for Mass later that day.

For the sunset there were many that came to join in on the fun. Scott even got out his 24 foot tripod to get some amazing shots.

It was a great week. I am one of Scott’s biggest fans and was so glad to go out and take pictures with him. I am very excited for the coffee table books! Oh and you should watch the Vlog (video blogs) of his trip. They are my favorite. Faith in America Vlog

  1. Are you the Sara Jarvie who wrote the alphabet book “O is for Old Man of the Andes”? I saw it today at the Phoenix Art Museum display of photography books and would like to purchase one. However, I can’t find it anywhere. HELP?
