I met Jacob and Morgan when Jacob hired me to photograph his surprise proposal. Which means I met Morgan mere moments after she said, “Yes.” Kissed Jacob. And then asked, “What’s that clicking noise?” And I jumped out of the bushes like a crazy creeper, grinning like a fool and yelling, “Congrats!!” Since then we’ve been bosom buddies. Well, maybe not bosom buddies, but I’d say we’re pretty tight. When they asked me to photograph their wedding as well I was overjoyed.
What makes a great visual story? Portraits? Emotion? Location? Context? Details? The truth is all of these scrambled together are what make a story ring true. All of these aspects help us to encompass the full story of a moment or a day.
For some reason there is nothing like a still moment with a curled up kitty. There’s something about that warm fury body on a rainy day that calls for blankets, a warm cup of coffee, and cuddles. We have two cats, Briscoe and Sookie. Sookie is featured here. While I pass by them a million times a day in this position, there are some moments when their peaceful nature just strikes me.
I can hardly believe it! My first Mother’s Day as a Mom! I can already feel the time slipping by. Each moment passes way too quickly. As I was thinking about that this morning I decided to offer a mini session special for all those Mommy’s out there who want to capture this special time before it slips by. Email me today to lock in your time slot!
Candoro Marble is a beautiful venue that originally was the showroom and office for Candoro Marble Company. When Jaimie said she was looking for a vintage backdrop for some soft and classic boudoir photos, I knew that this was the place. The beautiful show room, wrought iron gates, and slightly decaying rooms spoke of Greecian statues…it was perfect.
There hasn’t been a whole lot of “still moments” around here lately to tell the truth. But every now and then we get a glimmer of one and hold onto it for dear life. There is something about having a child that makes you be much more aware of time and its passing. It can make your stomach churn to realize how much has already gone by, or make you flood with exasperation at how slow the lack of one nap time is going. Either way you are so much more aware of it coursing through your daily life with an intense ebb and flow.
