True beauty is a ray that springs from the sacred depths of the soul, and illuminates the body, just as life springs from the kernel of a stone and gives color and scent to a flower.
An anthology of thoughts, stories & love by a Fort Collins photographer
For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.
— Rainer Maria Rilke
Love allows understanding to dawn, and understanding is precious. where you are understood, you are at home. Understanding nourishes belonging. When you really feel understood, you feel free to release yourself into the trust and shelter of the other person’s soul.
— John O’Donahue

To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxeries; avoid all entaglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulberable.
— C.S. Lewis
Watching and being able to document families grow, transform, shift and meld together is such a very special and tender part of my job. A part that fuels me and catches me and one that I won’t take for granted. It’s just astounding to me to be trusted enough to be able to witness such love and incorporate me into such intimate and life-altering moments.
I’m booking 2018 & 2019 family sessions and weddings. Please inquire to get more info and on the schedule!
