I taught for the first time! I photographed a REAL FAMILY in their ACTUAL home in front of other 20 + photographers. I was hella nervous, and not to mention, what the rest of my crew doesn’t realize is that I screwed up with Cate (the mama) I gave her the wrong date, and It […]
Oh man! this baby and those eyes. He smiled from the moment he arrived until he left. I had such a lovely time photographing this beautiful family. They truly made my job so so easy! I am so so glad that we pulled an early 8 am session for this one, the heat is unbearable […]
Oh, Portland, you left me amazed, and so did the incredible Jayme Ford, from The Paper Deer Photography She styled this family so beautifully. Seeing her work her magic was so special. I’ve admired Jayme for such a long long time. To be honest, the whole weekend was incredible. But seeing these kiddos so in […]
I love capturing fading baby features. Before long Mr. H will no longer be a baby but a full-on toddler. Those sweet curls in his tiny baby hairs will get more straight and rugged, those chubby cheeks will also deflate a bit, and that sweet baby walk will turn into something more refined and full […]
I’m not even sure what it is about the in-between time of winter-spring that I find so hard to deal with. Yet I am always so grateful for these two, they keep me grounded. Even though this motherhood gig just somehow keeps getting tougher, it also keeps getting more and more beautiful.
I can remember my mom describing my wild antics but only wished there was a photograph to see them, because I know I was wild. I just don’t have the proof of how much :P. I cannot stress enough how important it is to document your kids as they are. The way their silly girn was full of tiny teeth or the untamed baby hair or in our case the gallos, a Mexican word for hairs that stand straight up and cannot tame no matter what you try. Below you can see all of that in my kids. Also my daughter in the way she removed her shirt to match her brothers.
I could say a gazillion things about this family, how beautiful and well behaved the kiddos were and talk about the parent’s connection and all of the love they emphasized during our time together. But I think that the images speak for themselves. You can take a peek at what makes this family a wonderful from […]
“The best I can say, it’s like this. A man’s in his skin, see, like a nut in its shell … It’s hard and strong, that shell, and it’s all full of him. Full of grand man-meat, man-self. And that’s all. That’s all there is. A woman’s a different thing entirely. Who knows where a […]
Oh sweet baby! This family, what can I say, but oh my goodness. I got so lucky in coming across Sarah and her little family, they make me so excited to photograph them every single time they hire me. They are full of love and all that realness. I was so honored to have captured […]
So at the end of 2016, I was in one of the worst creative ruts of my career. I say career because I’ve finally owned up to the title of Artist. But, that’s a topic for another day. I looked at my work from the past two years and it was full of conforming images. Stuff […]
