MAKE your life FEEL like A FUN GAME,

rather than something to survive & endure.

CREATE A LIFE-BRAND

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 […]

First Clients in a Small Town at the Cherry County Fair

The first image in this story stopped me in my tracks over on Instagram. I wanted to crawl back in bed and be as comfy as she looked! Little did I know, there was a darker story behind this photo that I couldn’t see on the surface. Photographer Justine Curran created a series to savor […]

Self Portraits of Maternity Life Inspired Through Peri-Natal Depression

It sometimes feels like clients only seek photography services (documentary especially) for the MILESTONES (weddings, birthdays, events, etc.), as if only the big moments are worthy of hiring a photographer for / spending money on. In my experience (after starting out on this lone, documentary road in my local area), when money is attached to photography, […]

Magnify Small Moments into a Photography Experience

Our “school” mornings consist of our family being together — groggy and sometimes a little crabby, but together. I revealed these Morning in the Life photos for our 7 Day Storyteller’s Challenge participants, so they could have an example. The funny thing is, I made these pictures on a whim, before the challenge on the fly, without thought. […]

A Morning in the Life Before School

When I asked this mama to pick a family memory that she wanted me to capture during their session, she told me that they love to play at the park and play baseball together. So, that’s exactly what we needed to capture! We planned the session in the evening, at a really cool park that […]

Mom + Kids Choose Baseball & Park Play for Family Photos

You know those trips it seems you will never top and will never be forgotten? That’s how the trip to the cabin was last summer… The weather was AMAZING. The food was good as always. The mosquitoes were there, but bearable. The fish were biting like crazy. The hot springs were just hot enough. Fun […]

Documenting Your Family Vacation in Photos

Hannah’s photo session was part of my “Before 8am” series, a photography project I started with the goal of documenting what happens — wait for it — before 8am. I wanted to choose something that happened in everyone’s day, a time or event that every family experiences in some way. Everyone has a morning routine, […]

“Before 8am” A Documentary Photography Project

Self Portraits of Motherhood Founder, Ellen Covey Photographer, Ellen Covey, sent me a Facebook message that changed my photography game. She invited me to the group she created for aspiring + elite photographers to connect all based on one topic: Self Portraits of Motherhood.  Since Ellen has started this group, it’s grown fast and has now evolved […]

18 Stunning Self Portraits of Motherhood + Inspiring Community

As a mom, I enjoy spending Sunday afternoons, in the kitchen, baking with my littles. I always think about how special these moments are to me and how my littles will grow up with fond memories of the everyday things we do. For many months I had dreamed of shooting a baking session and was […]

Celebrating Motherhood: Documenting a Baking Story

Photo sessions of seemingly perfect lives live all throughout the internet. Most people hire a photographer to bring out the love and happiness within their family and to create tangible proof to show the world or hang on their walls. This is a different story. Some never would consider documenting such a story with an actual photographer. It’s absolutely heart-wrenching […]
