Well, we’ve finally reached that part of the program where we’re out of fingers to describe your development. As you pointed out to me last night when I tucked you in, Molly, you’re going to need three hands to get to 11 now. It got me thinking. You both have grown so independent this year. […]

As photographers, we often get asked what cameras and lenses and gear we use…or use most often. I wish I could say there’s a magic bullet for making images compelling. But, there’s not.

So, I mostly carry one of my cameras around with me at all times. Lately, that’s usually been my Sony a7iii because it’s just so easy to travel with & I just plain love that thing! Buuut, if you’re not nuts like me and toting around a big camera everywhere you go, you’re likely using […]
