As we will one day not be at all

March 7, 2020 · Film, Portraits

We are not idealized wild things.
We are imperfect mortal beings, aware of that mortality even as we push it away, failed by our very complication, so wired that when we mourn our losses we also mourn, for better or for worse, ourselves. As we were. As we are no longer. As we will one day not be at all.

— Joan Didion


Sacred Depths of the Soul

September 29, 2018 · Film, Portraits

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.

— Rumi

Stardust in her Dress

August 8, 2016 · Film, Portraits, Weddings

She cannot be beautiful, for beauty does not fully capture her luminousness. She is stardust in her dress, descended from the heavens to briefly brighten this world.

Katy is like a fairytale come to life! You’d never know it was over a 100 degrees and that Mother Nature bestowed upon her 250+ mosquito bites!

Free In Her Wildness

September 10, 2015 · Film, Lifestyle, Portraits

“She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water.

She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs.

‘Time’ for her isn’t something to fight against.

Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.” 


More to come…

Terrill Family

June 29, 2015 · Families, Film, Kids, Portraits

I feel the happiness ooze from this session.

Their love pulses through every image.

The genuine laughs, the thoughtful and curious interactions, how gently dad holds onto his daughters hand.

I am so grateful that I was entrusted to capture these special moments to live on forever. To spark their memories in a year from now, from a decade from now, on their daughters wedding day, and all the days after.
