I have been gone for WAY too long. It's sort of like when you stop writing in your journal, then feel guilty and avoid it... It was nice to also have the break of one more thing to do... but I am back baby and working on a brand spanking new blog! Bear with me as I spring clean and get it perfected!

Three reasons I love Hunter...

1. He has wise eyes. They smile and worry and look right through you, and I could not get enough of them.
2. He has the coolest parents around and it was once again my honor to get to photograph and know this family.
3. again... will you just look at him? Tutt calls him Teddy Ruxpin, I think it fits.

ANOTHER first day of Kindergarten....

it seems like only yesterday, when Tutt and I were sending Kash off to Kindergarten, we were a combination of total excitement and total heartbreak and it wasn't easy to come home with only one kid.
then there was this year, sending Kash to first grade and Leah to Kindergarten. It was SOOOOO much harder. Coming home with NO kids, turned this momma into a MESS, a sobbing, blubbering MESS! We sent both our kids off, went and had breakfast together, I continued to cry until we picked Leah up 3 hours later. She came running out of her class singing a song about leaves and singing the praises of her teachers even louder! I still don't know when Tutt and I managed to get "grown up" enough for two kids in school... weird.

here are a few pics from the day! (A month behind, I KNOW!)

three reasons I love to photograph kids...

1. the smile with their eyes even when the are crying.
2. I get to watch them grow up, and I am still amazed every time how quickly they all grow up!
3. this little dude is the best, Ryan is curios, busy and those eyes! HOLY MOLY, those eyes!

this is last years session


p.s. we photographed at the same place as last year so they could add to their already existing wall collection.

hi... been a while right?


I know it has been a while since I posted but man, I am so busy, and when choosing between spending the last few moments of the day blogging or snuggling with my family, I tend to choose them. I know, I know it is "bad for business" but what about being bad for me? Is the time spent on Twitter, Facebook and my amazingly awesome blog (if I do say so myself) more important than the time I spent on my family? ... on myself? Sometimes I feel like I fight the urge to be both a great and all powerful business woman and artist or a stay at home mom tending to my garden, turning our house into a home, a pretty home, and playing dress up with my kids.

I have a ton to share, please bear with me as I get through the piles and the giggles and the weeds. I have a tea party to plan.

In the meantime enjoy this amazing little poem and video. Made me cry a little, smile a little and think a lot.

thanks for letting me share.

just one little sneak peek of our little office assistant...

So this is Robyn and Shawn's little miss sunshine, they call her Berkeley Lynn and she is perfect! Robyn is a perfectly natural, completely glowing mother and Shawn is the dotting completely smitten daddy I knew he would be.

Miss Berkeley, your parents are the best people I know, and you my little girl deserve the very best.

Uncle Tutt and I will always be here for you.

three reasons I love the Kesslers...

This is the hardest post I have ever had to write, Robyn is my friend, sweet soul sister and partner in Verité, we have been through the good, the bad and the ugly together, and I could not be more blessed to have her in my life. This was the shoot I was most nervous to do, the pressure (I put on myself) was insane but I really love this collection. It is to me how I see the Kessler family.

1. Robyn is the most talented photographer I know. She has a sensitivity to the details that make the an image into a piece of art. I am beyond blessed to photograph with her by my side.
2. Shawn LOVES this woman and I do mean, loves adores and completely supports her... It is an awesome sight to behold.
3. They make decisions based on the golden Rule, and it has taught me to do the same. They both have challenged me to do better for the world.

Baby Kessler will be arriving any day now... YAY!
