I'm not sure why I've chosen the following photographs as 'best'. I don't know if they're the very best photographs or if I just absolutely love these people. Maybe I cried when I watched their slide show or when I got in the car after the shoot. I had an incredible year. I was in California, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin twice. And of course, my Massachusetts family has continued to blow me away with your support and love. Thank you, EVERYONE. You're the very best families in the whole. wide. world.
Enjoy. I hope to see new and familiar faces this year. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me for a shoot. You'll never, ever regret it.
Thank you so much. I love you so very much. t.
Some girls have all the luck. Anna Lee invited me over THE WEEK before she gave birth to Mari. This is a smart, successful, ultra kind, chill, gorgeous mama. I'm lucky to know her and be trusted. Enjoy! The very next post is her baby! yay!
Man, it is soooo special to be invited into people's homes when they're just bringing home their child. I can literally feel the emotion in the room and I can see that new parents are utterly crushed with love. I love that. And watching Jimmy, who is a very cool headed doctor/entrepreneur fall madly in love with his daughter every second absolutely broke my heart wide open. Anna's awesome mom was in from North Carolina to help out, and when she started singing old Puerto Rican (where they're from) lullabies to Mari, there was not a dry eye in the house. Welcome to the world, Mari. You are crushed with love.
Thank you Anna Lee and Jimmy for trusting me and inviting me to document your lives. It's an honor and i love you. Congratulations.
If you were wondering how strong the power of love was you can look no further than the Armstrong family. Man, these people are strong and soft all at the same time. Krissy and Nick love their little girls, Sophie and Mary Kate, as much as you all love your kids, no doubt, but the sheer power of hope and love and tenacity is palpable in this crew. And damn, they look good, don't they? I love these people SO MUCH. As soon as I walked in the door and saw their enormous wall gallery of photos I've taken over the years I burst into tears. Never once will they regret turning a room into a living art gallery of their family.
You guys, your support of me and my career is so madly appreciated. I love you all so so so much. It's an honor that you trust me to document your lives. I love you all. Thank you.
Man, am I lucky. Josh and Lindsey are some of my very favorite people, never mind clients! And photographing them as their beautiful life unfolds is some kind of honor! Little Vivian, who is Josh but smaller and a girl, has been on planet earth for a full rotation. How cool is that. She's as hilarious and fun and upbeat and beautiful as her parents and we chased her all around their beautiful home and Thomas Park until it was time to nap again. Being one is rad.
Here she is as a newborn and in Lindsey's belly.
I cannot wait to continue to watch this family just get better and better and more full of love. Wouldn't wish this beautiful life on two truly cooler people. I absolutely love them, they're the very best of the best. Honestly. Enjoy. I love you guys. Thank you so so so so much for your trust and your support. love.
