Shoot from the heart.

I need to shoot from the heart. Lots.It’s how this all began. Going through these photographs, I am reminded that it’s always there. I may not always acknowledge or address it, but it’s there. My heart. My need to connect and make someone see what I see. I’m so glad girls like Erin let me...

Megan : Anytime

We met by love. 12 girls who love love and live their lives behind a camera documenting the love of others. We all came together for something that none of us had done before. Travel somewhere, together, with hearts unfamiliar to ours. We thought, what the hell, we’ll have a good time, maybe this will...

    Megan is stunning & these images are stunning as well. 🙂

For you to remember.

Being the planner she is, Ricci set up this shoot months ago. Although, she couldn’t be here physically, she’s definitely present within each one of them . Going through these photographs, I can see her. Her smile, her heart, her spirit and most of all, her determination. It’s immensely visible through their eyes. The love Ricci...

    This is absolutely incredible….my constant prayers are with her and her beautiful family……their whole world has been turned upside down but you seemed to capture their strength with such ease. God bless them. A reminder to all that life is so precious….hold your family and the people in your life that you care about tightly! Squeeze the heck out of them every single day!

  • AriAugust 31, 2011 - 5:53 pm

    I LOVE how organic these phtographs are. It’s really difficult to find the beauty in such a tragic story, but you’ve done it. Your creativity has revealed the very soul of this woman through her family… it is moving and somehow inspiring. This lump in my throat lingered long enough that a tear made it’s way down my face. A tear of belief… a tear of hope. My best to Ricci and her soulmates.

  • Ashley PerezAugust 31, 2011 - 7:16 pm

    Love, love, love. I think this is my favorite session I’ve ever seen on your blog. You captured them so beautifully. What an amazing gift for this family!
