Julie and Nate: The Wedding
Julie and Nate: The Wedding

Julie and Nate were married in Grand Lake, CO in May of 2015.  It was truly beautiful.  It was also nearly two years ago.  But time and children have intervened and I’ve lapsed in posting until now.  I do remember one thing quite clearly from the wedding.  Julie’s dad gave a wonderful speech about his […]

River: "Bridal" Portraits August 2017

My daughter, River, is obsessed with weddings.  She insists on marrying her daddy regularly.  So one day desperate to get some pictures of her I offered to take some bridal photos in our garden.  She chose the outfit and together we made a bridal bouquet.  And a beautiful bride she made.

At the moment I could probably best describe you […]

Money, Self Worth, and Identity
Money, Self Worth, and Identity

This week Meg wrote a post over at A Practical Wedding that got me thinking.  And reminded me of the important, Part I post in her series. I read that first post back in September the day Meg wrote it and it helped me decide to try this photography thing out.  It’s not that solely […]
