Hembree Clan 2015

web6

Six years ago I photographed Jeff and Shandi’s wedding. Since then, they have been the easiest people I photograph every year. But then they had to go and have a baby. Last year, their little girl was a champ and the photos were a breeze. But what would be the chances of that happening twice? […]

Unnamed, Untitled.

Last summer a friend, former roommate and insanely talented musician hired me to fly to LA and photograph her for an upcoming album. Artists lean into a fluidity of emotion and feeling and for reasons I cannot explain, the images which excited my friend were no longer in the style she needed. I held them […]

These gorgeous girls walked into the bakery where I was slinging coffee and asked about buses up to SeaTac on a SATURDAY at 5 am. I told them it was going to be hard to get a bus  that early. Then I got to thinking … I would be leaving my house nice and early to drive […]

Thanksgiving at the Coast

My stunning sis-in-law asked me if I’d spend Thanksgiving in Florence, OR with her and the kids at her aunt and uncle’s house. Thanksgivings in my clan are usually HUGE and extended family meander between conversations and slip off to whisper gossip. A couple times we even rented a hall to house all the people. […]

Grasley Clan 2014

I photograph this gorgeous family at the end of every summer. The first year was magical and they kept coming back for more. Somehow, this year, we found the PERFECT corner behind some old shipping containers and a run-down restaurant. The backdrops were stunning and the place was completely empty. Loved it. Also, the kids are […]
