As a photographer, it’s easy to focus solely on photographing my clients and my family. But, almost two years ago, a mentor reminded me of the importance of photographing something just for me. She reminded me that I need to be able to give voice to my own creativity and make time to see it through. So, while these projects do involve my kids (because they’re my partners in crime and I kinda dig hanging out with them), these projects are my own. They represent my desire to embrace the peaks and valleys of life…the beauty and the mundane.
