One year my mother decided that putting your hands on your hips could liven up any photo. None of us were allowed to pose in any other way for the next decade.
But by then, none of us could stop.

I've thought of a few more ways to make a good photograph since then.
Mom, this is for you:
You can find my photos published in Hungry Eye Magazine, The Boston Review magazine, The LA Weekly magazine and in books like Film Craft: Cinematography, Art Toys, and The Graphic Eye and featured in wedding blogs like OffBeat Bride and A Practical Wedding. You can find prints of my work in the homes of some beautiful souls who love a good story: cinematographer Seamus McGarvey (Atonement/Anna Karenina), Stuart Murdoch (Belle and Sebastian), Opus Moreschi (head writer at Colbert Report) and Becca Dobias of Riverside, CA ( mom to little Jonas)
You're likely to find ME learning to break dance in a little quiet beach town in los angeles or doing what I love: documenting love stories and helping people feel seen. Every story is a love story if you're paying attention.
