Sisters Catch Butterflies + Bugs in the Summer

You don’t have to be a photographer to know some moments cause you to SPRINT for your camera: like when you walk into a room to find your kids have painted their entire bodies. We first: run for the camera. Second: clean them up. Or, when we go into the bathroom to find an empty bottle […]

Love is Everything: Time Spent with Our “Kitty Grandma”

In my life, I’ve prayed many prayers. I’ve prayed for guidance, health, wisdom, healing, and peace. I’ve prayed for answers to tough questions and for forgiveness. And, since they were born, I’ve prayed that my children would be fortunate enough to spend time and make memories with their 102 year old, Great-Great-Grandmother. Let me tell […]

Iconic Photo Series: “The Swing Set”

May 30, 2018, marked the 8th year since I’ve become a proud, Long Island homeowner. You see, I am a statistic. I grew up as a statistic. I was the youngest of three children raised by a single mother. I’m a female, and also a minority, so never in a million years did this city […]

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 […]
