Photographing the Everyday

When I first got into photography, I remember staring at pictures of children frolicking in wildflowers, having tea parties in enchanted forests, and rolling in lush rolling meadows. I wanted those images until I realized that that wasn't real life (at least for me). Most days my life is mired in typical suburbia with its [...]


Sleeping Photography

I have had sleep battles with Drake since he was a newborn. Even now I think he gets far less sleep than he needs, but there doesn't seem to be anything I can do about it. I put him down around the same time every day, but he can stay up for hours playing, talking, [...]


Newborn Photography Gear

Photographing a Baby Who Can't Sit Up Yet

I am currently taking another photography workshop this month. I've been using Juliet as my subject for my daily shooting and homework assignments, as she is easier to photograph these days than Drake the whirling dervish.
