“Being in a long marriage is a little bit like that nice cup of coffee every morning, I might have it every day, but I still enjoy it.” Stephen Gaines That’s a great quote. It reminds me of our marriage, in that we need to drink in the moments, and not take one another for […]

I’ve been trying to write these thoughts down for almost 3 weeks now, but it has been difficult to correctly put into words: I have made a personal decision give up social media. I’ve been feeling this was necessary since January, but have constantly made excuse after excuse of why it couldn’t happen. Mostly, it […]

It was one amazing and busy summer for the our family. We were privileged to photograph 18 weddings, catch fireflies, grew tons of tomatoes, zucchini, blueberries, and kale, canned 45 jars of strawberry preserves. We kept 2 pet grasshoppers, 8 princess tea-parties, hosted lots of family from out of town. We picked blackberries from our backyard […]

I enjoy reading about history, and have always loved to travel. It’s one thing to hear about D-Day, or to see the Robert Capa’s handful of blurry images that survived. It’s another to be in the movie theatre to see Saving Private Ryan. But I’m the kind of person who always wants to go there and experience it. […]

I was recently in NYC for a commercial shoot, and in some of my down-time I wandered the streets, soaking up the city. While I’m more accustomed to the piercing call of our resident red-tailed hawk, the crickets chirping, and the coyotes yapping at night, there is still something comforting about the constant hum of traffic; […]

I spent most of last week taking Lola to doctor’s appointments, hospital visits, and having numerous tests. Some of the hardest ‘mommy moments’ come  when you have to hold your child down while they scream, beg, and try to wriggle free so the doctors can do their work. I shed many tears watching her cry. […]

This morning, I was making Lindsey an omelette, enjoying the fading colors of a spectacular dawn, and got a phone call which made me drop the spatula and head out the back door. Linds’ Mom called to tell me to look out the other direction. Just opposite the colorful dawn was a double rainbow. If […]

2013 was an amazing year. We learned a lot about ourselves while working from home with 2 children. We were blessed to have some absolutely terrific clients. Sometimes, we look at each other we can’t believe that we have the opportunity to work together photographing such wonderful people. We laugh, cry, and celebrate along with […]

I don’t necessarily think that the camera “makes” a picture better; there are millions of great phone pics out there that could quickly prove that wrong…but there is definitely some great nostalgia in using vintage gear. I’ve put quite a few rolls of Kodak 120 through a 1950’s Rollei. There are many I haven’t shared […]

Lindsey and I are both honored and privileged to be a part of the weddings that we photograph. It’s always fun to get to know our couples along with their friends and family. This image can speak for itself, but I’ll just add that Lindsey’s look says it all: “it’s gonna be a fun one!” […]

One day in early April, Jack was helping me re-arrange the garage, and he was rather intrigued to learn that I have a sleeping bag. This led to lots of questions, and then (finally) the one I was secretly hoping for: “Daddy, do you think we could go camping sometime?” After an incredibly rainy May, […]

Getting a new lens always a fun event for me. It’s like a different pair of sunglasses. Some of my sunglasses have a brown tint, which gives the world a very warm “Americana” look, while cooler-tinted ones give an 80’s feel. In the same fashion, various lenses give a completely different perspective, and can really […]

My mom taught me so much in life. She taught me to; pray first before making any decision, always look on the bright side, use my napkin, turn my feet out (I was extremely pigeon-toed growing up!), smile, be myself, have joy in my heart, laugh-out-loud, be thankful for my red hair because it made […]

I’ve been shooting more and more film, and although I’d love to say that I always set up great photo shoots of the kids…I can’t say that! What normally happens is that I have 5 frames left on the end of a roll of film, and then I try and convince the kids they should […]

Lindsey and I took the kids to the beach last month, wanting to have some quality family time to reflect  back upon during the crazy busy summer months! I took the Contax 645, and had an awesome time shooting lots of film. I’ve been shooting quite a bit of color film (namely Kodak Portra 400 […]
