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 […]

Making Memories Tangible + Durable for the Littlest of Hands

How often do you practice what you preach? Countless times I’ve shared my perspective on printing beloved images to make them feel more real. Does something really happen if it’s not shared on social media? Do memories even happen if they’re not printed and preserved? Admittedly, I’m the worst at taking my own advice. Really, […]

Documenting What Follows After Receiving “The Call” We All Fear

It’s always easier to tell other people’s stories, isn’t it? The Sunday after Thanksgiving, we got “the call.” My oldest sister Cathy’s battle with Lymphoma was coming to a much quicker-than-expected end. After a three-hour drive to Albany, my husband, my three children and I arrived rather frantically to the hospital in anticipation of seeing […]
