Best of 2019

photography

The New Year always feels like such a clean slate. A time to reflect on the past year and resolve to make changes in the future. This past decade was full of adventure, change, growth, and discovery. I moved back to the States, I got engaged, bought a house, got married, drove 10,000 miles around Europe, moved to China (again), got pregnant, moved to the UK, bought another house, and had 2 of the most perfect babies.  This past year, adding the sweetest and happiest little girl, Romy to our lives has brought me so much happiness. Her big brother, Cav, has fit into his new role amazingly, and watching the 2 of them interact and love each other is one of the most beautiful feelings in the world. It’s an unexpected side effect of having 2, and I feel like the luckiest human on earth to get to experience this.

In terms of photography, 2019 was exactly what I wanted it to be. Taking on less weddings, and really having the creative space for each one and putting my whole heart into each day. There have been so many beautiful, tender moments this year, and I feel so lucky to be a witness to it, and to have the immense responsibility of documenting it.

Here is a smattering some of my favourite moments from 2019. And not specifically because I think they’re the best images, but because of the emotion and feeling I had in that instant. They’re not all portraits, and they are not all paid work. They are just my favourite images from the year.

In no particular order…

Our Wedding :: The Week Before
So I've never been the girl who has had wedding dreams from an early age. When I met Eliot, I didn't hear wedding bells and start planning our nuptials. Although we often talked about it, I never really thought of it as a reality until we'd been together for 3 years and lived in 3 different countries.When Eliot proposed I was a clean slate. I had no expectations and I had absolutely no idea what our wedding would be like. But what I did know is that I loved him more than anything in the world and our wedding would be a product of both our dreams. I can honestly say, on January 8th, we lived our dream wedding. From start to finish, nothing ...

Change
 "Things change. And friends leave.  Life doesn't stop for anybody."  -Stephen ChboskyI'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.  Places I've been where I've had a community, laughed, made lifelong friends, cooked meals, cried, and moulded my life into.  A place I am going to miss so much I will feel sick over it.  Florida is now one of those places that holds a little piece of my heart.  And it might be the hardest place to leave yet.I can ...
