So watch this space for more posts about connection. In the meantime, here are a few favorite images from 2017!
What a great year it was!! Thanks to all of my fabulous clients in 2017 – ones that were new to me and especially the ones that come back year after year. It is a privilege for me to capture the love and connection of your families – there is nothing I’d rather be doing!

I have been working on this project and I am so excited to finally show some images and talk about it!!! Do you remember what it was like to be 11 or 12? Kind of awkward, right? It was for me, anyway. And when I look at the (very) few photos that exist of me at that age – well, that’s just it, there are very few. Why is that? Why do the tween ages so often get forgotten?
