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 […]

#005 – ‘Elicit Emotion’ Obsession? Listen in.

#004 – What’s a Legacy Box?

This episode took a lot out of me. I wanted it p-e-r-f-e-c-t for you. I wanted everything I feel in my heart inside this 30(ish) minute recording and for it to be music to your ears. You know what kind of pressure that’s like? At least 12 false starts to this recording, that’s what! ha […]

Cambell's Covered Bridge, South Carolina

My Podcast Promise

I was driving home the other day and the closeness of hitting PUBLISH on this thing was sinking in. Mixed emotions: excitement + also fear of judgement in releasing this piece of my heart here in the photography community.

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, […]
