Photo Of The Year

Although the year is not quite over, I’ve chosen my favorite photo from this year.

2022 has been a great year for me in terms of creating. I have a ton of beautiful images that I can choose from at any given moment. But this particular image stands out in my mind as one of the most beautiful and meaningful that I’ve made this year. This photo of my daughter is proof that not every image we create needs to have a complex backstory to be important.

So, the story of this photo is extremely simple and straight forward. My daughter was trying on her new scarves. As she was coming down the stairs, I was on my way up the stairs. I saw how the light was hitting her face, so I asked her to stand there while I go grab my camera. I came back within a second or two and made the photo. I made a few frames just for the sake of variety, but ultimately this is the one that really spoke to me. That’s it. Easy right?

As you can see, sometimes the most simple, unassuming, moments can make for some of our greatest, or, most favorite work.

Don’t be afraid of “regular” moments. Often times they are overlooked, but totally beautiful. As long as you have a camera to record what you see, you will always be able to create something special.

Beautiful star-child, with a glow so bright

You illuminate the day, as well as you do the night 

Confusing to most humans, you’re a complex sight

For you may be dark, but you are also the light


Fun With Adrian

My second test shoot this year with the beautiful Adrian Sellers. This was one of the most fun and laid back shoots I’ve had in years! I wish they could all be this relaxed and enjoyable.
