Fall family photo wardrobe inspiration

Does the notion of coordinating your family’s picture ready wardrobe give you the heebie-jeebies? Do you feel like you don’t even know where to start and maybe it really is just easiest to wear white shirts and khaki pants? (Noooooooooooooooooooo! Now I have the heebie-jeebies). If you are at that point, do not despair: there…

film project

And by film, I mean moving pictures, aka video, not the photosensitive plastic that captures still images and is developed in a darkroom. Those kind of film days are long gone for this girl but as of late, I am all about creating mini films that capture my family on our little adventures. I recently…

Hoddy is… | Forever in my heart

In the summer of 2014, I introduced a personal project that I started with my friend, Hoddy Potter, the Hoddy is…documentary photography project. Hoddy was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin follicular lymphoma, grade 2 stage 4 in March 2014. Here was this woman, a young mother, wife, successful business owner, vibrant member of the community, a strong…

    Thanks you for doing this. I lost track of shoddy when I moved from SF and she moved to KS. I just found out she died. She was probably my favorite Bar teacher for her killer Level 2 classes and her amazing self. Her energy was a joy!!! I can’t believe she died. It seems so incongruous someone so full of life should die so young. I’ll remember the lesson she taught in how to live and SHINE forever.

Modern Couple | Louis & Bree

While we were on holiday in Australia earlier this fall, I, a portrait photographer at heart, found myself in this incredibly beautiful location with nary a person to photograph other than myself. Now, we all know I embrace self portraits but this little spot of the world called for more than self portraits. I needed…
