I have been thinking about authenticity lately, and how it applies to my photography.  I think we are seeing more authenticity from our society in general as time marches forward – moms openly admitting that their kids drive them to drink, celebrities posting pictures of themselves as awkward teenagers, and dadbods are all the rage.  […]

  Come make some memories with your family!       As I was having a tea party with my 1-year-old this afternoon, I noticed a lantern given to me by my mother-in-law, and suddenly I felt inspired.
