I’m riding shotgun down a two lane highway in Maine on my way to camp with extended family on the coast. So this post is an experiment in iPhone technology. I plumbed the depths of my iPhone library – recently purged of photos in order to make room for this trip. Luckily, I found one […]
A photo from my archives… an illustration that I did for a book project. And one of my first introductions to the speed with which one must work when your model is 18 months old. Fast and Furious (without the furious.) So, you may be wondering how I got a stack of hats balanced […]
Some of the best photos come from unplanned moments. Here, while I was adjusting the studio lights I looked over and saw this composition. I quickly lifted my camera and grabbed the shot. I only had time for one exposure before everyone moved and the scene changed but luckily it was enough.
When this little guy was 3 months old a chance schedule overlapping of one day in Champaign allowed us the pleasure of meeting. We hung out. Stared into each other’s eyes. He smiled at me. I photographed him. We shared a couple fun hours together. Flash forward to now. My traveling entourage rolls into town […]

After a 3 week separation from Ben while we were in Champaign and he was in Austin, the kids were super psyched that he was back in time to spend the 4th with us.
This little girl loves to have her portrait made. Her parents and I had quite a list of ideas we wanted to try and she happily posed for every single one. It was one of those sessions where everything went smoothly and exactly the way it was supposed to… until I went to load my […]
Austin is a special place. I’ve lived in a number of towns, in a number of states and visited many more places around the world and I have yet to find a place that is so uniquely individual (redundant?) as Austin. If I ever had to move, I would pack up my family and my […]
Oh what a beautiful home birth this was! I got the “it’s time!” call in the wee hours of the morning and raced over. There was lots of laughter and excitement and when it got serious, her support team rocked it! Birth Photography is about telling the creation story of each family. It helps […]
