Documentary Family Photography.  I want to start by saying the most important thing learned from this trip was empathy. This is hard for everyone and a little bit of grace + understanding can go a long way right now. On Friday I hopped on a plane to head to State College for a Day in […]

Phoenix Family Photographer – I like warm hugs

a day in the life

Phoenix Family Photographer. It didn’t take much convincing for me to travel to Phoenix this month for a Weekend with Colie.  I mean the warmer weather was certainly a draw, but I also had SO much fun with this family.  Megan is a fellow photographer (check out Magpie Love Photography) and I was her birthday […]
