Three reasons I love Hunter…November 11, 2010

1. He has wise eyes. They smile and worry and look right through you, and I could not get enough of them.
2. He has the coolest parents around and it was once again my honor to get to photograph and know this family.
3. again… will you just look at him? Tutt calls him Teddy Ruxpin, I think it fits.

just one little sneak peek of our little office assistant…August 19, 2010

So this is Robyn and Shawn’s little miss sunshine, they call her Berkeley Lynn and she is perfect! Robyn is a perfectly natural, completely glowing mother and Shawn is the dotting completely smitten daddy I knew he would be.




Miss Berkeley, your parents are the best people I know, and you my little girl deserve the very best.

Uncle Tutt and I will always be here for you.

peace.

three reasons I love the Kesslers…June 30, 2010

This is the hardest post I have ever had to write, Robyn is my friend, sweet soul sister and partner in Verité, we have been through the good, the bad and the ugly together, and I could not be more blessed to have her in my life. This was the shoot I was most nervous to do, the pressure (I put on myself) was insane but I really love this collection. It is to me how I see the Kessler family.

1. Robyn is the most talented photographer I know. She has a sensitivity to the details that make the an image into a piece of art. I am beyond blessed to photograph with her by my side.
2. Shawn LOVES this woman and I do mean, loves adores and completely supports her… It is an awesome sight to behold.
3. They make decisions based on the golden Rule, and it has taught me to do the same. They both have challenged me to do better for the world.














Baby Kessler will be arriving any day now… YAY!

peace.

three reasons I love this little man…June 24, 2010

1. Look at that hair… I mean are you kidding me? He is already dark and handsome!
2. He has a comfortable peace about him, you could feel it even in his momma’s belly and it is so clear when you meet him.
3. I ADORE his parents, Mariana started in the studio as an assistant but both she and Shawn have become family, I am so honored to know them, to be there for them and to photograph Mr. Julian.

three reasons I LOVE miss Sienna…June 22, 2010

1. she made me look good… her momma was calling me the baby whisperer by the end of the session. ( I dig that)
2. Are you kidding me? Look at her, so beautiful, so peaceful, she is perfection!
3. her mom and dad have no idea (and don’t tell them) that she has them both wrapped around her finger!

three reasons I like xavier and his people… and dog.May 19, 2010

1. he is a fighter. coming into this world was not easy but he and momma fought to
2. the have exquisite taste. the art in his house is AMAZING! to be honest I wanted to take a tour of the entire house and discuss art over tea… shhhhh don’t tell mom and dad.
3. they are all so in love with each other, in love with their city, in love with their future, and it’s contagious!









I would love make a 30×40 canvas for above their fireplace… don’t you think?
