Happy Halloween from Houston

This marks our second Halloween since moving to the suburbs of Houston. Last year we had only been here for less than two weeks when the holiday arrived. I was pregnant with Vada and getting all dressed up wasn’t top priority on my list. We got a costume for Olivia and ventured out into our new...

Olivia & Vada

Bright, sunny days in Houston are a great time to try out new film. So I used my girls to test out some Kodak Ektar. I love this film so much for its bold colors and how it handles the color red. I will definitely be using this film for family portrait sessions on sunny...

A Day At The Farm

This post is long overdue. These photos are from one of the very last pre-school trips my daughter took with her classmates before we moved to Houston this fall. I brought my camera loaded with film and snapped a these shots of her picking apples and petting the goats. Always a good time on the...

Freedom Found: The NEW Lost Kitchen

Today is a very special day for a long life friend of mine. Chef Erin French of The Lost Kitchen was named by Eater Maine as Maine’s Chef of The Year today! I attended the soft opening of Erin’s new restaurant in Freedom this June and just realized today that I never shared the photos...

The re-opening of The Lost Kitchen

If you lived in and around Belfast, Maine two years ago then the name The Lost Kitchen is not foreign to you…that is unless if you’ve been living under a rock. What went from secret dinners to a full fledged restaurant with local, Maine fare, The Lost Kitchen was the brain child of Erin French,...

Welcome baby Duncan

Baby Duncan arrived a little earlier than expected, but he was welcomed with open arms last month to friends Annie & Tyler. I can’t get enough of this little man and it was such a joy to take these photos. I love you all very much and I cannot wait to document your family as...

Film Workshop Part I

Last month I had the amazing opportunity to spend the entire day with Heidi Murphy of White Loft Studio, a film photographer in Massachusetts. I have admired Heidi’s work for a while now and wanted very much to learn from her so that I could get back on the horse with shooting more film and...

Mondays

Mondays during wedding season are what ultimately turn into a normal persons Sunday. I try to take the day off on Monday to recuperate from the busy weekend of shooting and take the time to rest or get things done around my house that others typically do on weekends. As yesterday was my first “day...

Pi Day

Yesterday was Pi Day. Yes. A day where we Americans celebrate mathematics and that famous never ending number that is 3.14159….well, you know. And in true American fashion, we honor this day by eating, well, pie! So we took the opportunity to celebrate math and family and enjoyed an evening out where we filled our...

Dedication

The white rose my soul Is blown upon the ways. Over the high earth Valleys bring it forth, And it is found upon mountains.   The white rose my soul Knoweth all winds and wings, All nests, all songs, With each smiling star, And every graceful day.   The white rose my soul Is under...

Office remodel part 1

Let me start by saying that this was my husband’s idea. And his ideas are usually good, don’t get me wrong. This one, however, I took a fast liking to which is odd for me because the project I am about to embark on is going to require giving up a lot of control…something I...

Film, failures and starting over

Where do I even begin with this post? I’ve known for quite some time that there has been something missing in my photography life…both personal and professional. Those of you that know me and know my history with the art know that I started in the dark room with black and white film. And that...

Sunglasses for a cause

I’ve known about Toms for quite a while. I’m pretty sure it was one of those USA Network “Character of the Month” commercials when I first learned of the company years ago. The companies owner Blake was profiled for his work in developing countries. The premise was simple. You buy a pair of Toms shoes...
