Man kissing wife's forehead

My camera accompanies me just about everywhere, even though I have a smartphone. These days, just about everyone has a camera phone, which means our images becomes scattered across timelines, crunched into Instagram squares, and sent into group chats just about every second of our day. With all these photos, moments have become less and less sacred, but I believe these special moments still exist. Take these two, for example. We stole a few simple minutes with these snow-capped mountains as a backdrop.

5 years later and they are still smitten.

5 years later, and they still continue to take on life’s joys and challenges in the same way: together.

and in 5 minutes, I tried to capture a few images, to just have living proof that this kind of love exists, naturally, truly.

As much as I love working with clients for consults, to discuss clothing or locations, or shooting day-long events, there is something sweet about having just a few simple moments. A few moments when my camera comes out and the mood strikes, a moment without the pressure of an end results or a long, creative project.

Just my camera. Just my friends. Just some love and a tiny bit of light.

It's an age that many of wont get to say we made it that far. And here, Alfred is still kicking it, laughin' up, and showing us gals a thing or two about heavy equipment. I went out to photograph this man as showed me around a large yard filled with machinery that he had worked on many years prior. He knew almost every engine. He knew the ends and outs of how they worked and how to fix them when they didn't. It's a art- fixing things rather than throwing them out and buying something new. ...
