I think everyone agrees that family photography is important, but I’m not sure that I fully understood how important until recently.
Pulling together the story of my grandmother's life - with all her photos and memoirs - is nothing short of a gift - a legacy that grounds me on this planet and in this lifetime.
My kids now see that they are part of something bigger. I know a day will come when they will share it with their kids (and I hope that day takes its sweet time to get here).
Photos of our families make us realize how quickly it all goes by. How big our kids are getting every day and every year. How generations are passing by.
How it all adds up to something: a story worth telling.
time is a precious gift
And, At least for me, There's nothing like having kids to mark the passage of time.
Since 2016, I’ve switched from telling stories of ancient geologic environments to telling stories of families and children. Over the years, I’ve polished my craft, like water polishes rock. Through trial and error and more workshops than I can count, I grew from a hobbyist to a professional photographer and filmmaker.
Now, my camera feels like an extension of my body and mind. This means I can really focus on the moment — be aware of the light, notice the emotions, and document the connections happening right in front of me.
Photography is science and light; I think that’s why I love it so much. These are my superpowers.

Stories give us a sense of place and belonging.
I would give just about anything to hear the sound of my grandparent's voices again.
That's what Legacy sessions are all about.
Time is painfully short. If I could bottle up my grandmother's laugh, or the many couch sessions with my dad discussing Wendell Berry or the state of modern-day politics, or the sound of my daughters chatting with their grandmother in animated and giggly voices, not to mention the pitter-patter of little feet as my kids run up the stairs for the weekend cuddle puddle in bed .... you bet I would.
The ability to remember family stories and relationships, even after people are gone, is sacred. It's an honor to be able to help you remember yours.
(yep - that's me - with slobber or some other questionable substance on my face, sitting on grandma's knee!)
This is what I want for you:
Images that capture the love in your family.
Photos that will last for over 100 years.
Videos that tell your family stories.
Yes please! Let's do this!
