I have way too many words for this little family. Meeting through mutual client-friends, it’s been years of portraits, baby bumps, newborns, family sessions, just-because-just-for-mom-sessions, and now the engagement into the wedding. Rain is our theme, apparently. Rain and love.

I’ve gotten to know them both pretty well over the years, and their daughter is every bit as amazing as they are. Having been enthusiastically welcomed into their home (by the dog), and into their lives (by the humans), it has me thinking… This job can be such an honor. I don’t know how long I will get to do this for a living, but I’m going to make the most of it, for as long as possible. Documenting life for people is fulfilling in a way I never could have imagined when I started playing with a camera for the first time.

Sally Mann first inspired me to photograph people in an art-meets-documentary sort of way. Informed by art, for sure, but less about art, and more about humanity. She also said, “I wish I could be a better writer, but writing is so difficult. I get seduced by visual aesthetics. Because I just like making beautiful pictures, sometimes I wander away from making a clear statement.” I’ll leave this post right there.
