I have recently been trying to take more quiet, everyday moments with some of my personal work.  I love taking just a few frames to express a relationship or a fleeting moment in time.  My youngest son recently turned four and I captured the last five minutes before his bedtime as a three year old.  I was fortunate enough to have it featured on the 5 Minute Project - check it out! To me, these four frames below really get at the essence of who my two youngest buys are, of  their relationship with each other and myself, and of our vacation.  From a playful moment with one, to the two of them interacting with me and each other, to the quiet comtemplation of my youngest.  It’s only four pictures, yet it brings back a wealth of memories for me :).

What story would you tell with four frames?

I wanted to say a huge heartfelt “thanks” to all the mothers who I had the pleasure to work with over the last year.  Thanks for wanting to capture the time before you officially became a mom, the time you had family gathering from far and wide, the time you held your newborn baby boy and could hardly believe he was here, from first birthdays, to coming home from school for a visit and the time before they left again to start a new adventure…for all of these times and many, many more. I am thankful I was able to capture it.  I wish you an awesome Mother’s Day :)

Here’s just a few of the moms and the memories….

I can’t tell you how much this picture means to me.  That I was fortunate enough to take her newborn pictures and now I am taking one of her as a toddler with her new brother. That she was so in love with him that she laid down and closed her eyes as she cuddled him :) So sweet while it lasts and so lucky I was to capture it….

Underwater photography has always intrigued me as much as water has captivated  me.  From swimming pools to the depths of the ocean, there is something all at once calming and powerful about water that I find hauntingly inspiring. I recently got back from Maui and got lots of opportunities to really explore the water and my fascination with it. From my time there, and reflecting on what I want to do with my work this year, I have decided to start a new series of personal work and explore it a bit further.  I am a firm believer in personal work to further your technical and creative ability as an artist. A couple of years ago I completed a 365 and although it was really challenging to have that type of dedication, it was worth it. Personal projects have the power to set  you free to create without any pressure, besides those we inflict on ourselves.

There is many more to come, but I loved this night on the beach in the waves watching children play by the last light of the day.  Hope you join me on this journey.
