Photographing Family In-Home

That Clutter in Your Home? There’s a Story There

Friend, you can skip the cleaning before you pick up your camera. Confession: my house is almost always a mess. It’s not that I like it that way or that I don’t care about it. It comes down to three simple facts: I want my children to have access to lots of materials with which they […]

Oak Bay Flower Shop: Small Business Documentary Photography

This session with the Oak Bay Flower Shop was one of my first small business documentary sessions. The owner’s goal was to humanize their business and show that they’re not just another mass-market online florist, but a real local shop that cares about their customers and sources most of their flowers locally. I aimed to […]

Gender Reveal Photo Session Ideas with Documentary approach

A Baby Gender Reveal with a Documentary Approach

What do you do when rescheduling a planned outdoor session is simply not an option? First, you look for a covered location; I usually run to a college campus, or a catholic school (their architecture are usually nice for families or couples sessions). This time was different. I felt inspired and my client was into […]

Documentary Family Photography / Preserving Memories

First Clients in a Small Town at the Cherry County Fair

I had a great job with amazing benefits + on track for a prolific career. There was one problem: I wasn’t happy. I wanted to pursue photography full time, but knew it was selfish to do that to my family. Still, my amazing, supportive wife encouraged me to do so and I put in my […]

The End of an Iconic Toy Store Generation: Farewell Toys “R” Us

It’s weird how strong of an effect a brand has on people. Whether it’s Nike for athletes or Disney for families, brands have cultivated a staple in our culture. I’d argue that these brands hit a fever pitch during my childhood. Nike’s ads were plastered with Michael Jordan, Disney targeted families during a renaissance of […]

An Iconic Photo of “The Bubblegum Lady”

I have a story about bubblegum and a picture to go with the story that shows how amazing photos are, and how important our job is. This is my grandma – probably my favorite person in the universe. We lived in a small town of fewer than 3000 people. Everyone in town knew of her. […]

A Photographer + Her Husband’s Adventure to Naomi’s Village in Kenya, Africa

It all started in January 2017. My husband and I were in Encintas, CA, walking along the beach. We were both so incredibly happy to be close to the ocean, for the change of scenery from the mountains in Colorado. We were so happy to be warm, to have the time to walk next to […]

Real Life in Photography: The First Day of Kindergarten

Learning to let go is hard. Change has had a major impact on my life and my growth as a photographer. It drives my desire to document life. I’ve always been greatly affected by it. It’s difficult, yet refreshing, for me to come to terms with the fact that nothing stays the same. For the […]
