Gratitude

When asked what I like to photograph I usually say “people” because “gratitude” would be a weird answer.  It is, truthfully, what I love photographing most and is probably what made this my fav shoot of the year to date. And I’ve never seen it or felt it more honest or more raw than right…

Outside in

This is my personal favorite nursery of all time I’ll admit the bias up front.   We live around the corner and chose this house for its placement in the the trees, amidst the foxes and owls and all the creatures my baby has connected with growing up here.  Just today as we walked to school…

The Power of Three

These two were so into it, though, they couldn’t even look up at…
