You believe in your story. I surrender to it. Capture it. And hand it back to you in a way you can remember forever.

You're about to embark on the most wonderful of adventures. Because you're here that tells me you value epic, mind-blowing photography. Well done!

I'm fortunate, and sometimes I have to pinch myself when I think about how much I love what I do. I illustrate every story you trust me with.

Incredible photographs result from a trusted relationship between us. This comes from a friendship, and from time invested in getting to know you, and why you have chosen the different elements that will make up your wedding day. Think of me as a visual biographer of sorts, a narrator, telling your story through the images of your day.

I want you to be blown away by how beautiful you really are, by how beautiful I see you to be.

Lets get started!

+ you are beautiful

Newborn:: Harlow

by July 9th, 2010 No Comments »

Newborns are so interesting to work with. Thinking that ten day old Harlow would be asleep for most of her photo shoot, I was planning on being able to mold and shape her pliable new body into soft curves and circular shapes. But Harlow had other ideas and by gosh, she was going to stay awake for her photo debut!

She’s such a good baby. Little Harlow only cried once (hunger pains set in) and only wet the backdrop once. Not bad for a newborn. Holding her brought back memories of holding my own girls at that age and how time truly does fly by. I’m betting Harlow has already changed quite a bit in the last two weeks since these were taken.

Detail shots are some of my favorite. Little toes, wrinkles only acceptable to newborns, the curve of an ear, a perfect little mouth and toes…amazing details that only nature could create.

Okay, I lied…I think these images, of mother and child, are my favorite. Someday Harlow will look back and be amazed at not only her small self but also her mom. And she may be cradling her own newborn against her chest, feeling all kinds of love coming out of her for this baby, and realize that her mom must have felt the same way about her.
