“Growing up in Baltimore, being outdoors meant a trip into the backyard. And while we spent hours there building tree houses and swinging on the tire swing, it wasn’t really Nature. However, the year I turned eleven, and every summer thereafter, RoPa loaded us three kids into an RV and took us camping. We’d spend …

“I’ve tried to make our last full week of summer extra special. I’m keenly feeling time slip through my fingers – a series of lasts before school starts up on Monday. Our last lazy morning together, last picnic lunch, last afternoon of building tiny legos upstairs beside me as I work. Things I love about …

For those of you who know me or follow my work, you know that I’m dedicated to preserving my family’s history.  I started a personal project called “Stories of Family” back in September 2016, pairing a photograph with words of my family.  This spring I took a beautiful workshop with the thoughtful, generous, and awe-inspiring …

Here’s a snapshot of our spring! “We had friends over the other night that had placed bets as to whether we’d unrolled our rug yet. It’s been sitting like this since we moved in the beginning of January. I know we should unroll it. Or lug it into another room. But it makes such a …

Perhaps it’s because we’re juggling so many things these days, but time seems to be flying faster than usual.  The end of another year (how can that be?!?) and a peek into our December. From the moment he was born, Peanut’s heart has been wide open to the world. Eye sparkling smiles and laughs at …

I’m loving this project so far!  Here’s a glimpse into our November. We’ve been unmoored. Set adrift. Floating from the mercy of one kind friend to the next. Driving highway loops on repeat to coax the boys to sleep. Stakeouts when the house showings stretch past bedtime. Too many restaurant meals to count. If I …

This funny thing happened as soon as I started my business.  I stopped taking photographs of my own life. People warned me this would happen.  And frankly?  I didn’t believe them. While I’ve fallen in love with the business of telling the everyday stories of families, I don’t want it to eclipse the stories of my …
