the magic of childhood

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.

The Brown family

This is one of my favorite families, and favorite shoots. Ever. I always look forward to their shoot each year because they like to shake things up, and I love an adventure! This year’s photoshoot took us to the Mojave desert to an abandoned movie set and a Joshua tree they decked out with Christmas lights and bulbs. I’ve always wanted to do that, and I’m so happy they have the same taste and made that dream a reality! This was the perfect cherry to top my 2016 photo year sundae, and I can’t wait to see what next year holds!
