THE ANTONIA FAMILY (on black and white film)

i have been photographing my own family exclusively on film for the past few years and slowly coming to the realization that if old manual film cameras are what i choose to document those closest and dearest to me, then why shouldn't i apply those same tools to other families that invite me into their lives? thankfully, my dear friends elizabeth and michael and their two amazing daughters, elodie and francesca invited me to "do my thing" while documenting their family. the trust they placed in me coupled with welcoming me into their home and allowing us all to just exist naturally together for a couple hours...this was just such an incredible honor for me on so many levels.

photo wisdom would dictate that old, slow, manual focus, manual exposure cameras are not what you should reach for to photograph the motion filled, hold on for the ride, experience of documenting a family...but after this session, i've got to say, i've never felt more alive while photographing. here's to hoping for much much more of this in the near future.

MICHELLE + RAFAEL // FROM BRAZIL WITH LOVE

there are some couples we're lucky enough to have in front of our lens where within the first minute you quickly realize they'd be interacting the exact same way whether a camera was in front of them or not. it's those moments of true authenticity when the camera and the photographer become thoroughly transparent...it's the most magical thing to witness. michelle and rafael live and love in brazil, but for this one afternoon they came to truly live and truly love with me in the mountains and i couldn't be more grateful for it.

THE CHAN FAMILY

these are our dear friends the chans. over the eight years we’ve known them we’ve been lucky enough to photograph their wedding, them as a couple multiple times, their family when they were a family of three, and now again as a family of four. the past few chapters in their story have been filled with many trials, but they've managed to never let themselves be defined by them. they’ve risen to every challenge set before them and continually inspired us and countless others every step of the way. photographing nellie, michael, rock, and ruby in their beautiful home just doing normal life for a couple hours is such an honor. already looking forward to next time!
