I honestly never dreamed this would be me.
I got the email, supa casual hey, shoot my family?
From the first photographer I ever followed, years before I became an actual photographer. His work influenced mine more than anyone else’s. This was B-I-G. Call all your people and scream big. Giggle/self pep talk in the car on the way to the shoot big.
Most of my days aren’t filled with big dreams coming true. Most of my time is spent quietly, reading books, filling up sippy cups with milk, changing diapers, enforcing bedtimes and coaxing smiles. So this day, finding out that this family is just as cool as they seem on the internet and making images of them–watching the ways they are normal, chaotic, loving, patient–it filled me up so overflowing to come back to the quiet, unglamorous days that stretch out in all directions.
