Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and the Death of Humanity

November 29, 2013 | No comments yet

I’m going to go off script for a moment. It’s Black Friday, I’m at home with my family, eating homemade beef stew that’s been slowly cooking for more than twenty-four hours. My family’s all out of town for Thanksgiving, spending time with other family, and I am acutely aware of their absence. We had friends […]

August 10, 2013 | One comment

There is this rule, in internet blogosphere land, that you are not supposed to post blogs at 12:30 am.

I recently had the incredible privilege of documenting my step-brother Sam marrying the love of his life. I hold them both in very high esteem, and am so incredibly happy to have Katie in our family, and to have the opportunity to give them the humble gift of these photos. Thanks to all the wedding […]

The Brownes

Thanks to Trish Christie, our goddaughter’s mother (I think I’ve given them both shout-outs in previous blogs), I have had a train of steady photo work the last couple of weeks.  I guess I can thank myself as well, for taking photos that people want, but it’s really gratifying to feel like things are finally […]
