Lately, I’ve had quite a few clients tell me that they were surprised how little I click the shutter during a session. I think it’s really interesting to hear, because from my side of the camera, my mind is always thinking and anticipating, and the click of the shutter is such a small part of […]

This past week I broadcast a little series over on Instagram stories. Each day for 7 days I made a confession to the world. I was a bit nervous to share these things, some of which were pretty personal, and some which were just sort of silly and weird. But, after confessing, I was shocked […]
