rainy day

I love it that this family decided to go ahead with our scheduled shoot even though it was raining cats and dogs outside.  There's something so cozy and quiet and everyday about rain.  I felt like we were able to capture some real everyday life moments.  Moments that are so much more real than the glossy beauty of all-put-together-and posed photoshoots.  

There's something magical about bringing a camera into every day life.  The camera shutter can't capture any of the loud noises, unpleasant smells, emotional turmoil. Instead we're left with the raw beauty of the sometimes seemingly mundane.  Photos give us evidence that  family life is stunning, in the chaos and clutter, in the noise and mayhem, in the sacrifice and work.  Photos help us see the beauty around us that is clouded sometimes in our efforts to make it through a day.  Photos give our lives perspective so that we can more fully cherish the present. 

I love photos.

Say Cheese for Refugees

I've been having such a great time doing these mini shoots for refugees.  I have loved meeting all the people who have donated and capturing them or their little ones.  I especially loved the morning I spent in St. James Park.  The light was beautiful, glimmering through all those green green trees and the moms were all new people to me, the kids all new faces.  They all beamed with the light we get when we're doing something important for the world.  It was kind of a magical morning.

Here are a few of my favorites from the mini session.  Hope you can see all that light.
