I wish this story was mine to tell, but it’s not, so I’ll leave it at this: family is love – love that overcomes, love that heals, love that strengthens, and love that binds. Family is rarely what we planned, and for that we should celebrate, because it’s really so, so much more.
My favorite photos I take of my family are quite different than what I take for my clients. They’re just… fun. And us. And really imperfect and relaxed. They’re exactly what I want them to be though: memories made with these precious children of mine, and reminders of the immense ways my husband and I […]
We have plans – but they have other plans. We have dreams – but theirs are different. We expect one thing and they deliver exactly the unexpected. Sometimes we’re just moving in opposite directions. I’ve been a parent long enough to know that I can’t change my children. They entered this world with a personality […]
We know that family is hard, often every day, but gosh, it’s good too. It’s really, really good. And there’s no untangling the good from the hard – they’re just stuck together, at least as long as we’re living these earthly lives. But so much of the hard is exactly what makes the good all […]
I’ve wanted writing to be more a part of my life for a long time – a very long time. It’s been one of those things that has drawn me for as far back as I can remember, but it’s also one of those things for which it feels nearly impossible to find time, let […]
This session was photographed in my studio. If a cozy, simple, minimalistic session is something you’d be interested in, I’d love to chat! I offer newborn, maternity, and motherhood sessions in my studio.
This interconnectedness – sometimes it’s messy and feels like elbows and knobby knees and endlessly meeting others’ needs first and a desperate longing for an hour of quiet. But even then, it is beautiful in the most profound sense. This instinct to create love and multiply through it – the way we are filled by […]
These photos…. oh, where do I even begin?? They are magical, and the location was my all-time favorite, ever. The weather cooperated perfectly, the children were wonderful, I mean really -every single piece came together perfectly. What’s funny is that the time we spent with this family was almost the only part of our trip […]
We’re at the end of a gorgeous autumn right now, but I’m trying to sneak in a few more summer sessions before I’ve really waited a ridiculously long time to post them. 😉 This mama and her boys… well, all I can really say is that boys who love their mamas are one of my […]
I photographed this dear, sweet friend of mine not long before we moved to Boise. We’ve been friends since college, and both of us ended up moving out of San Diego around the same time – and just before her first darling babe was born. I SO wish I had been able to meet Fiona […]
