"Things change. And friends leave. Life doesn't stop for anybody." -Stephen Chbosky
I'm doing it again. I'm writing a sentimental blog about leaving a place I've come to know as 'home.' My collection of "homes" is becoming more extensive, and not in the billionaire sort of way. More in the homesick sort of way. P ...

Southampton Boudoir Photographer :: PX70
Working on editing the digital part of this shoot, but thought I would share the instant shots I got using Impossible Project PX70 Color Protection and B&W film packs. Also excited to be using the new VSCO film pack for editing the digital files, which now has over 115 film emulations which are inspired by Polaroid, Fuji and Th ...

Into the Instant Film World
This is the newest addition to my film camera collection, a Polaroid SX-70 Land Camera. If I could describe it one word? TEMPERAMENTAL. Everything about this is completely unpredictable, and sometimes painful to experience (as in watching money burn painful). Being a product of the 70s, not everything works perfectly all the ti ...

Southampton Portrait Photographer :: The Vernons
I am 100% positive that, no matter how old you are, your parents will love a photo of you more than anything in the world. And, if you manage to get your siblings in it as well, then you might as well have solved world hunger in their book. At least I'm pretty sure.
Here we have a photographic family, who I was honored, thrilled ...

The Best of 2012
A whole long list of cliché adjectives that span the emotional spectrum. I'll spare you. If you follow this blog, you probably get the gist.
2012 was a learning year for me in terms of my business. One of the most important things being, to stay true to myself and my style, no matter what. It ge ...

A year ago today we were nestled in a little climbing lodge, at the foot of Mt. Hood, with 60 of our beautiful friends and family. We danced the night, went sledding at midnight underneath a full moon and sipped warm drinks next to a fire. I don't remember a time in my life having ever been happier.
Happy anniversary darling. ...

Southampton Engagement Photography :: Chris & Dyana
I ♥ this couple. I had such an amazing afternoon with them, photographing their e-sesh. I pitched the idea of doing their engagement session in an antique/thrift shop a few weeks before. To my delight, Dyana and Chris loved the idea, and scouted out the cutest little shop in all the land.
These two sweeties are so in love, and s ...

So I was in my home town last month. It's up in the beautiful pacific north west, and I try to take advantage of as much as I can while I'm there (we just don't have trees like this in Florida). I asked my little sister if she wanted to go for a walk with me. We had quite a few uncharacteristically sunny days while I was up the ...

Southampton Wedding Photography :: Melanie and Drew
There aren't too many words that can describe how beautiful this day was. I was so honored to be a part of it and to share in Mel and Drew's happiness. To photograph the girl I grew up next door to marrying an awesome guy, was really amazing. Everything went perfect, and so much of it was the product of love, family and friends. Th ...

This past weekend I did an engagement shoot with this lovely couple. I brought along a special treat, a pack of Impossible Film. I hardly ever use the polaroid camera, because the film for it is so expensive. But thanks to a sweet friend who gifted me a pack of film I was able to use it for this shoot. I love the look of these ...
