A New Addition.

There's something awesome about filming your friends, especially when it's to celebrate a brand new addition to their family. I get to spend time with people I love, doing what I'm passionate about.

This family has always inspired me with their kindness and generosity. As my wife and I's longtime neighbors, they showed us time and time again what true community meant. When they welcomed their first son, they amazed us with their immediate comfort in their new roles as parents, all the while remaining present as our friends, in their social circles, at their jobs (in due time) and in their own interests, like Amy's garlicky delicious cooking and Myk's love of broomball. From our perspective, it seems like the welcoming of their second boy has followed suit. This is a family everyone wants to be a part of, and the kind of parents we all hope to be. Thanks for inviting my camera into your home again, and here's  one more giant and warm welcome to beautiful baby 'F'.

All that is Good...

I love my job. Regardless of what's happening in the world, I have opportunities to enter into spaces filled with joy and love - and there's nothing quite like getting to document the beginning of someone's story. 

Baby M, I hope when you're older you'll look at these photos and recognize the pure happiness and pride you've gifted your little family. <3

Welcoming Baby W

There's little that I love more than the opportunity to document new life. Home can be a vulnerable place to invite a camera so soon after the addition of a tiny human, especially when it's your first. 

Mom answered the door on this sunny Sunday morning in a dark blue maxi dress, looking fresh, barefoot, and glowing.  "I'm sorry about the mess," she said, "I tried!" I told her not to worry, but what I should have said was, "Thank you." Their home was not messy by any standard, it was lived in, the perfect backdrop to support what I was there to do: Tell their story.
