I spent a long weekend in February at a photography un-conference/retreat in El Capitan Canyon called Yeah Field Trip. It’s really hard to explain my experience there. I found so many answers to questions I didn’t know I even had, … Continue reading
You guys, if you only ever look at one of my blog posts ever, pretty please let it be this one. In home sessions have my heart. Where else do you feel most comfortable? Home is where you can take … Continue reading
This family has been known to me as some of the best dressed, creative people to ever be in front of my camera. I’m always wondering what’s next for their photos. We’ve done pretty traditional photos in the past, but … Continue reading
This family. So much fun. It’s fitting that my last shoot in October would be pretty leaf-focused. We let the kids be wild and play and I love the result.
Atop a hill, overlooking the mountains, I met this family to capture their story of what life looks like right now, one year after the birth of their first child. Since Teethkiss, I’ve made it a goal to experiment in between shots at every session. To continue to take risks, to grow, to follow my passion and to curate new, interesting art that makes me (and hopefully others) feel something. Some of these photos are nontraditional for that reason. I’m loving the winds of change I’m seeing.
I’ve been participating in a workshop by photography virtuoso Yan Palmer called Teethkiss that has sort of changed my life…and along with it, my art. This was my first session since delving into it, and I feel like my work is taking on a different meaning. I’m seeing things more intentionally. Of course, there are still your more traditional family photos included in the gallery but this session focused around a little girl, whose parents adore her and who has the wildest, most beautiful hair. It is a depiction of childhood. The balance of being safely encircled in loving arms, and the freedom of roaming in an open field, throwing grass in the air and letting it fill you with the purest joy.
I love when a photoshoot has something inanimate as a major theme, unplanned. This session it was clover flowers. We had a laid back evening at a park, picking clover, watching the kids play as a family. I wish more … Continue reading
This family. You guys obviously know from one glance that they’re gorgeous, but they have the sweetest hearts, too! Tiffany is one of my dearest, most thoughtful friends and I was so excited to get her and her family in front … Continue reading
Can we discuss this adorable family for one sec? Mmkay. They’re funny. They’re beautiful. They chose to have photos in what is probably my favorite location ever. Their kids are brunette, blonde, and red haired…one of each! They made my … Continue reading
What could be better than a sun-drenched room, a simple backdrop, and a sweet family snuggled up in front of the camera? Nothing.
