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…

European Road Trip 2013
So this post is about 10 months late. Last summer we went on an epic, almost 4 month road trip, in a camper van around Europe. We had decided that it was time to abandon sunny Florida and move on to something else and while we figured that out we took the opportunity to do what we love most - travel. Of course, we took thousands of photos, and had really good intentions to get them sorted and posted, but then we got distracted with moving out to China. I did manage to scan and post all the Polaroid photos I took, but it seemed to take some convincing to finally get the digital ones prepped for the web.While on our road trip, Eliot did an ...
