A Year in Photos | 2018


We had ourselves another beautiful year. If you have a few minutes, I invite you to watch my love letter to my people, many of whom are you all, near and far, in my heart and mind often.

When it comes to life and art for life's sake, this quote sums up where I am at, personally, at this time.

“Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing. We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.”


―Pema Chödrön

I have learned a great many ways to live with intentional spaciousness and in doing so have really eliminated social media in the process. Find me via email, phone or good old fashioned mail. I want to be with my people, in connection and communion, even if that means I don't "see" you much through screens, I feel you all deeply. Now, enjoy, hit the HD button if that's an option (I won’t pay the $239 they want for the better HD), share with anyone who might want to see the kids and thank you for your love and support. Always, peace.

2015 Client Work

When I look at these images I feel every moment in my bones. My heart swells. I laugh out loud. Every single session this year brought me fuller and more deeper into this calling. Every session revealed moments of truth. Sessions were full of love, care, and joy as well as messes, mistakes, and thankfully only a few tears. I captured some big, big, big life moments, and lots of smaller ones. I was welcomed into homes to document regular life. We laughed so much. We played even more. I got really wet often (and sandy and dirty). I kicked my shoes off and chased your kids all over the place. I made couples kiss. A lot. I think I crawled into bed with way more of you than not. You all were absolutely wonderful. You went with me, trusted in me, and made some gorgeous images because of that. 

It's impossible to narrow down all the work we made this year into a "Best Of," but for the sake of a tasty blog post, I did my best to pull up images that I love on a gut level. Every session was unique and every session offered something new and beautiful. I hope they all continue to present these perspectives to me in the future. It's never boring. It's always fun. It's always made with love.

Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart.
