on being a part of it…

over the past 16 years i have photographed a few families and every single time i think… “WHY DON’T I DO THIS MORE?!” then i quietly go back to head shots, models or weddings. well, not this time. i’m all in. i’m all in for the story of family. i’m all in for the recording, the capturing, the documenting (or whatever the “it” word is this year) i just want to do it. maybe because i don’t have little ones of my own i want to be a part of it somehow. maybe it’s the idea that what i captured one afternoon (in the perfect light) … could somehow wind up in keepsake box… for the children of these children… makes me want to be a part of every family for just one hour on some sunny weekend afternoon.

bring them on… i’m ready now.
