My Inner Circle

My People are the Best People. Join my Inner Circle and I'll personally send you occasional notes about the incredible humans I photograph, reflections about connection, vulnerability and love, and other things that I'm thinking about.

Bonus: My Inner Circle is my sounding board for new and scary ideas, and the first to hear when I open up something new, or travel to your neck of the woods...

Personal Advice - The Light is in You

It's been an exceptionally hard few years for anyone that isn't a white, straight Christian. This month, in particular, has been painful for the Queer community, as the United Methodist Church voted to ban gay clergy, and components of the Tr*mp military ban on transgender service members began to go into force.

The way he joyfully assists at and contributes to nearly all the weddings that I photograph. His protectiveness. His patience, from which I’ve learned greater patience. His very particular way of stacking the dishwasher to “optimize space”. (Y’all.)

Business and Politics

I believe that choosing comfortable silence in these times is the mark of irresponsibility, selfishness and complacency.  This post is a simple one. It's to clarify where I stand - as an artist, a business owner, a citizen and a person.
