BALLS FAMILY AT HOME | Layton, UT

BOYZ WILL BE BOYZ

As I sit here in the Jen Den, peeking at my little slice of sky, reflecting on this series of photos and what I’d like to say about it, I can’t help but feel deeply grateful for the fact that today I got to wear a short sleeve shirt and sandals (wink, wink), as it is finally, mercifully, no longer raining in my part of the state (guttural woop!).

I was in New York for the greater part of May and can count on one hand the number of days I saw sunshine, which, ironically, perfectly mirrored my temperament - seasonal affective? Perhaps. But by god, I welcome this sunshine something fierce.

Hanging out with this rambunctious family of five last fall was invigorating, entertaining, and chaotic - my preferred state of creation where cognitive thought and premeditation go right out the window.

The deepest compliment I can ever receive from a client is ‘It’s just US’.

With that being said, this is them. Xo

CATCH UP

Hey blog fam! Oof, 2019. Hi. So, last I checked, blogging is still a thing, and even if it wasn’t, over the past 8 non-blogging months of my life, I’ve come to miss it.

It became clear to me that it’s another avenue for me to exercise my storytelling muscles and since that is a practice I feel is worth putting energy into, I’m back at it with a swell of fresh mojo.

When looking back through my galleries deciding where to pick back up (almost 200 by the way whaaaat) I felt a twinge of shame at how few I’ve shared. These stories deserve a home outside of my hard drive and I’m pumped to start chipping away at the block.

First up, Laura, Strader, and their Adonis baby boy, Coyote Hawk. I passed this long haired fam on the streets of Abbot Kinney in September 2017 during the annual arts fair, and it only took about 5 full seconds after passing them for me to stop, turn, and backtrack to ask if they’d be interested in a family photo shoot while I was in town (getting better at this, ha).

The stars aligned and they invited me into their home in Venice Beach, which, funnily enough, they’ve since moved out of, making this post all the more relevant.

Don’t forget to check out Laura’s jewelry company Turquoise and Tobacco and be sure to click the heart at the bottom if you enjoyed the post. Xxo

NIELSEN FAMILY AT HOME | Salt Lake City, Ut

Pool time in the middle of winter?  Yes please.  As someone who thrives on life in the sun and summer activities, these long dark nights of January have always been a bit of a challenge for me.  How do I make it through?  Snowboarding, puzzles, and loooots of Netflix.

When a session includes a specific activity that speaks to the character of the family I get a little thrill at imagining the potency the images will have 30 years down the road. 

Will the family always live in this house with a pool?  Maybe, maybe not, but knowing the memories will live on outside of the kids hearts and give them something concrete to look back on makes these types of sessions all the more satisfactory.  Xxo

GONZALEZ FAMILY AT HOME | New York, NY

As a family photographer I thrive in chaos and crash and burn in stagnation.  My work literally exists because of the wildness of kids spirits and I can truly only take credit for being a mere witness.

As with all things in life - true greatness only comes through great challenge, and when these two rambunctious babes scurried under the sheets of mom and dads bed in their Upper East Side, New York apartment, my 'witnessing' sensors were firing on all engines and I snapped some of my favorite images to date.

This couple (who met in junior high) hummed with love and so warmly welcomed me into their New York lives.  Get a load of it for yourself. Xxo

CHRISTOFFERSON FAMILY AT HOME | Brooklyn, NY

In the heart of Park Slope in Brooklyn, New York you'll find a wizard of a small boy, wielding a sword and donning a cape by day, and healing (mom and dads) ailments with crystals by night.  Just kidding, we never made it to night, but I DID get to witness this shaman baby in action, and for that alone, I am grateful.

Grey is a force to be reckoned with and it's easy to see where he gets his charm.  So many activities, so little time, and so, much, love in this quaint Brooklyn abode. Xxo
