So, I’m in China.
Sorry for the lack of posts recently. I have a beautiful wedding still to blog, and some lovely boudoir as well. I've just been busy with, er, moving to China. Somehow, saying that, makes me feel like I should explain things a little bit more.
I've mentioned before, on this blog, that Florida was not the place my husband and ...

Southampton Wedding Photography :: Nicole and Karl
An absolute dream location. A bride and groom who give you lots of time with them. Sleeping in a tipi under the stars. Sunshine in the Pacific Northwest. A tipi village next to a river. Beautiful friends and family. A couple film cameras. Handmade decorations. Corn Hole and Giant Jenga. All this, nestled in the foothills of Eugene ...

Southampton Engagement Photography :: Karl and Nicole
I always try my best, no matter what, to get a couple in front of my camera before their wedding day. Not everyone is used to having a camera pointing at them, and it's often really hard to not go into "cheese" mode when it is. Getting a couple in front of the camera before their wedding day, helps me to coach them a bit and get us ...

No Itinerary :: Europe via Polaroid
But in the stillness of the moment it takes for a polaroid picture
To capture our faces forever,
The world has turned a touch on its axis, and the only thing certain
Is everything changes. -Frank Turner "Polaroid Picture"
Those lyrics and the album that they come from was the soundtrack to our 4 month road trip. It's ...

Southampton Engagement Photography :: A Stockholm Engagement
Wow, I'm a bit embarrassed. I have probably sat down to start a blog, a dozen time since my last post. Even now as I write this, I'm wondering if it will actually make it to being published and killing my 3 months of silence in this space. I'll try to rationalize it in another post, this one is meant for much greater things.

Southampton Engagement Photography :: Kerry & Jonas
I met Kerry the first night I arrived in China, after a long Chinese dinner and a ride on the back of a motorbike, through the busy streets of Fuyang, with a South African guy I had met just a few hours previously. (In case you think that's not the best decision I've ever made, I can promise you that it's not the worst.)
She's b ...

Southampton Wedding Photography :: Kim and Christian
I really hate that this much time has passed since I photographed this wedding. It's been hanging over my head, but unfortunately reliable internet is not a luxury afforded to me during my travels.
When I met Kim, I felt a sort of kindred connection with her. If only because she was an American girl marrying a British boy, and s ...

Southampton Wedding Photography :: Michelle and Gary
I had every intention of blogging two weddings before leaving the states. But some things can't be planned for, and our last two days at home were pretty packed full.
Onto the wedding ::
This celebration was so intimate and so beautiful. Michelle and Gary have a tight knit family and about 20 of them were there to be a part o ...

Southampton Engagement Photography :: A Proposal
Happy Friday! One week from today and I will be on my way to Europe for 4 months. Today is also the last shoot I'm doing before leaving. It happens to be my favorite kind too. Can you guess? Definitely ending things on a high note.
This is a proposal I shot a few weeks back for a friend of mine. Proposal turned mini e-sesh. It w ...

Southampton Boudoir Photography :: Miss V
Some of my best work is sealed under lock and key for only a select few eyes. Most of my clients don't want anything shared, and that's perfectly fine. Every photo I put up here has been individually ok'd to be posted. Boudoir is as much about a feeling as it is in the visuals. If she doesn't feel like one photo is showing her in t ...
