Iconic Photo Series: The Fine Line Between Childhood and Teenage Years

I’m one of those sentimental people — a hoarder of some sorts — of memories. I still have a (really tattered) shoe box of letters that I’m so grateful for, and I’m truly saddened by the loss of the tangible memory. This moment for me is huge, because as young girls, we face so many […]

Family History: Photos Because I Miss Them Before They’re Gone

Do you feel like you’re constantly censoring yourself when you write about your experiences? You kinda have to, right, or you might sound like an emotional train wreck.

Documentary Photo Project: “Heartmade. Kauai”

Documenting Your Husband + Life Before Being a Parent

Documentary photography was always within, I just didn’t realize it. When I first got into photography, about a year ago, I was always a tad bit envious of all the other photographers I saw online taking gorgeous photos of their children… You see, I don’t have children yet. I always thought it would be so […]

Coloring Easter Eggs in Documentary Family Photography

Last year, we laid out the pink table cloth and did something I hadn’t done since I was a child myself. We colored Easter eggs with our daughter, who was about 2 1/2 years old at the time. This was her first real year to be able to understand the concept. Creating our own documented […]
