“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.”

Braving The Heat

with Hudson, Mary margaret and Munk

     Saturday afternoon was really hot, 99 degrees hot according to weather.com, but Hudson and Mary Margaret were great sports! We had a great time and I got to show them one of my favorite places in Martin. We jumped and we danced, then we had a foot race and explored a little bit.

     Hudson brought his bunny, Munk who had his portrait made too. Hudson and Munk definitely had a Christopher Robin and Winnie-The-Pooh dynamic about them. I was waiting for Piglet and Eeyore to walk out of the bushes.
     Mary Margaret took a little convincing but with some help from her big brother we got her beautiful smile to come out! She even blew me kisses.
These two kids and so awesome!

      I think this was definitely a shoot that caught special moments in their childhood. Catching a finite subject is what a makes a photograph special. For example, early childhood joy and the sweet friendship between a little boy and stuffed animal.

“There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.”

Stopping Time For Houses!


I always feel fortunate when I shoot Real Estate. I’m invited into people’s homes and personal spaces. I get grand tours of wonderful houses that people take great pride in! Then I get to photograph them. It not only allows the seller a way to showcase their home in a visually pleasing manner but in a sense it’s like a series of portraits for the house itself. In a few months when new owners move in, it’s going to look very different.
