Preparing for your Newborn Photography

You ask? How do I prepare when I’ve never had a newborn photography session? ‘Oh no.. it’s happening!’ The new mom exclaims frantically as she uses her hand to shield mustard yellow poop from running onto my spotless, ivory couch.  It’s only spotless because it frequently gets cleaned by me & my good friend Oxy-Clean. ...

Photography and Podcasting;

I’ve been keeping some pretty big secrets. Behind the scenes I’ve been rebuilding my life and career as an artist. Taking control of my future and guiding my daughter by the example I lead. Over the last ten years, I’ve watched as photography and social media have stolen our lives from the present. And as...

Where are they now? Brooke & Jason

Brooke & Jason just welcomed baby girl number two… and yet it seems like yesterday we were dancing on their wedding day. We hit it off instantly, Brooke & I. After many conversations, I learned that she is a scientist who does fancy science things, but at the root she & I are very similar. We...

The First Year {motherhood}

It’s almost April already… the Ides of March have come & gone…  the day that my daughter was born.  The day I began to see the world in a different way.  When I began to realize just how hard it was going to be to teach another human being everything I have learned & everything I still...

Remember the Days…

‘You’re 30?’ Jonathon’s eyes grew wide with amazement as he asked me the question. I am fairly certain that ‘thirty’ sounds like old age to a teenager. Jonathon is my step-sister’s first born. He is actually the the first baby that I spent any time with. He was always a very happy child, inquisitive &...
