I help client documentary photographers fine-tune their workflow + marketing game, so their work is filled with sessions that represent their voice + client values while earning a living. I shoot undirected, off-beat stories that aren’t preserved often enough (like the story of couples before starting a fam or becoming empty-nesters – a dream project of mine), so my clients’ old box of photos is a meaningful, visual diary of their life + legacy to leave behind.

#035 – The Day-to-Day Can Be a Visually Loaded Feast Too with Paul Gero

I met Paul Gero at a conference we both spoke at in early 2017. His talk was on reinventing yourself, which was really cool to listen to, because he’s had a vast variety of experiences being behind the lens. We recorded this in the spring and at the time, Paul was building his business around […]

#034 – Zoom In, Zoom Out, Repeat.

I just wrapped up recording an audio response to my strategist, continuing our conversation, and I was thinking after about how much I love this pattern I do in both my biz and my life where I zoom in and zoom out constantly. What I mean: I zoom out to find clarity, to pulse check […]

You may remember Katie Jet Walls – she was our guest in episode 003 all about Documentary School Photography.

Seriously, fellow documentarian, is there anything better than opening your memory card to a photo you made that sets your soul on BLAZING fire, you love it SO freakin’ much? You can’t get it into LR or PS to polish it off + share fast enough. Oh, and, getting it in print? You may as well […]

#031 – 4 Foundations to BETTER Document Your Life

The Ward’s Celebrate 58 Years of Marriage

58 years. FIFTY. EIGHT. That’s a whole lot of years to spend loving someone. And yet, there they were. Smiling. I joined Pat and Ward (actually, John, but I love that Pat called him by his last name. When they met, they knew so many ‘Johns,’ it was hard to get the right one to […]

The Real Story Behind This Simple, Environmental Portrait of a Man

You probably see a stranger, grilling some food, but this isn’t actually about grilling or about the man (my love).⠀ Story Time: We’re not “hurting” per se, but we’re not “loaded” either. We’re aware of our spending and it feels like we say “no” more than we say “yes” to fun spending. #joyofsaving #cautious ⠀ […]

Iconic Photo Series: Naptime at Three

I’ve taken plenty of photos of my daughter from the time she was just a few hours old to working on completing my third 365 project, which almost always features her in some form. I’ve taken detail shots of her, photos of her things, photos of her relationship with her brother, but no photo of […]

If you’re 100% OVER THE MOON, ELATED with photography and are happy as a clam working towards big goals in your work and / or business, this episode is NOT for you and doesn’t apply. If you’re loving it, but it feels a little different than it used to, it’s gut check time. Highlights of […]
