Today he’s 16, and I feel incredulous that my little squish of a boy is now a towering 6’2” gazelle of a human. His heart is the best part about him; it’s so tender and real and available for others, just writing that makes me feel proud and protective of this kid. He is destined for great things, and will affect others lives in the best way, with that heart. He is kind in a way that feels surprising for a 16 year old boy these days, which makes me proud and sad at the same time. He leads by example, laughs so hard and has the best sense of humor. ❤️
Happy Birthday, my sweet, beautiful son. I am so lucky to be your Mammy.

I am so lucky to surround myself with a gaggle of the best kind of women; we love each other unconditionally, hold on another accountable to our word, listen patiently and laugh without reserve. My ladies are filled with confidence, yet feel safe enough with one another to show their vulnerabilities. I feel beyond lucky to surround myself with these people, and have curated quite an impressive and colorful array of personalities. It’s been a process, and I have let go of some people who I stopped feeling good around. I grew wiser and more protective of my heart and it’s need to receive as well as give.
🌈
I’ve heard that you can tell just as much about a person by the friends they surround themselves with, and if that’s true, I’m feeling pretty proud. ❤️
Thanks, fraaaands

I said that’s some great timing because I have been calling people to me to be photographed in my river, and there she was.

My little Hog River gives me so much peace. I feel calm, grounded and at home (literally) when I’m in my back yard. I want others to feel that peace too.

As we splashed around in the river I watched her energy transform, and lighten. She told me stories of her travels, her struggles with how she feels about herself, and how at home she feels in the water.

I witnessed this transformation, first hand, and our energy bounced back and forth effortlessly. She said she loves how she feels around me, and wished she could just bottle me up; I make her feel so happy.

All I did was show her how I see her, and she saw it and caught an honest glimpse of how wonderful she is, at home with herself.

Loving ourselves is one of the hardest things. We all have our dark parts, or the parts we would wish away. But mixed in there are our best parts, our lovable parts, our human parts. It’s what makes us who we are.

Motherhood is the most complicated and rewarding role I will ever be tasked with doing in my lifetime. It isn’t about teaching your children how to walk, or use their words or pee in the potty. 💚
Motherhood is about raising your children to be kind, loving and adaptable 30 year olds. It’s about teaching these little humans about love and how to give and receive it. It’s about teaching them to listen to their gut, their inner voice and to stand strong when life is hard.
💚
Motherhood is also about learning from your children. We are fallible humans, too. We are not always right. Showing our children how we self correct is equally important , if not more so than just being right all the time. 💚
Being a mother to my two children is the most important job I will ever do!

Of all of the people and places I have photographed in my lifetime, my very favorite people to document will always be my Jack and Georgie. 💙
I realize that to be able to use my career and this skill set I have to benefit me personally is such a blessing. Being a world class neurosurgeon doesn’t mean you can share that with your family (hopefully, right) or enter any number of careers where your family won’t necessarily see you in action.
💜
As a society we create photographs every day,
multiple times a day. Being able to share this process with my kids makes me feel really good inside and I love involving them in the art direction and planning. They help choose color schemes and outfit choices and locations. I give them a peep into why things excite me; like the Getty Museum in LA- it’s designed by the same architect who designed the Hartford Seminary and it just pulls at my childhood and feels meaningful to me. It’s a building that I love and am excited to create some new art there with them. ❤️
Stay tuned for some colorful adventures from us as we explore California together!

I remember the shift from just being a wife to being a mother and parent and it was intense and beautiful all in one. 💙
My kids are now teenagers in high school(😬😭) and there are days when I just thumb through our photo albums and weep. I remember wishing they would be bigger and more self sufficient and felt super overwhelmed at that point. My business was taking off and I felt pulled in so many directions but man oh man do I wish I had that time back when they were little squishes of humans. The way they nuzzled into me so quickly or fell asleep in my arms is something I can still feel.
🧡
Hold those babies tight. Treasure each snuggle, each sleep deprived night, each tantrum. And like, take videos of that crap so you can make fun of your kids when they are teenagers!

There is something about those rich blues and reds that brings me whizzing back to my childhood; maybe it’s the memory of seeing Snow White in the theatre with my Dad as a kid; maybe it’s the similarities to the colors of Wonder Woman.
❤️
These are both interesting role models to have as a child; Wonder Woman, who, back in the Day fought crime half naked and had to hide her identity while trying not to make her love interest, Steve Trevor, feel like less of a man while being an Amazonian Goddess; and Snow White, a sweet little lady who liked to help others and was joyful and nice to animals. 💙
This mural, ‘Moonshine’ done by the Polish duo Etam Cru aka Sainer and Betz was ranked No. 3 in Buzzfeed.com’s list of ‘Best Street Art in the World 2013’ ❤️
I love that standing outside of a 7-Eleven in Richmond gave me such powerful feelings, because of color and subject and my scrabble dabble old memories. I love that a stunning piece of art is just there, for anyone to enjoy and interpret. 💙

I just got home from a whirlwind of all of the things epic, wonderful, small and meaningful and knew I had to just literally dump the inside of my brain on a piece of paper.
💚
The clarity I feel after I do that is palpable! I know I won’t forget, and will set aside time to put things where they belong on my list. Only then can I truly focus on the tasks at hand, like organizing my office before I can settle down and dig in.

I’m a creature of routines and habits with a dash of spontaneousness thrown in just to keep life spicy!

The ever changing landscape of my sweet little hometown of Hartford, CT keeps me on my photography tip toes! Murals that were, are no longer. Spaces, grow and change and evolve. 💛 While change can feel disappointing- especially when the murals were this charming and adorbs- it helps me refocus my vision and learn to see my landscape in a fresh way. 💚 change is inevitable, y’all, may as well embrace it! .

A little throwback to a hot summer day with one of my favorite Hartford Jazz Vocal talents, the incomparable Dana Lauren. Creating imagery that represents your brand is important, and powerful! Who are you, what do you do, what are you about? What do you want to put out there to the world about what you do? Dana’s silky voice transports us all to another place and time. If you ever have the opportunity to hear her sing, do yourself a favor and go! #hartfordhasit #jazzsinger #personalbranding #headshotphotographer #hartfordphotographer @danalaurenjazz

It’s been almost a year since this shoot where I met this ridiculous fluffy orange beast of a cat. My kids were there that day to help wrangle the kittens that were our models for the day and... Well. We left with 3 of the 4 kittens! 😬 this guy became Ron Swanson. He flops and lays flat on the floor right in the way and does cat yoga and stalks us when he’s hungry and let’s us hold him but isn’t a cuddler (yet) here’s to a year of kitty filled adventures!

A few years back I was invited to the Riveria Maya in Mexico to compete in a contest for the Tourism Department and help create new content for their weddings division. While I didn't 'win' the contest, I won at life! We stayed in a gorgeous hotel, got to spend time with some really talented photographers from all over, all of Mexican or Hispanic descent. We had personal butlers who brought us entire bottles of Tequila (OMG) and thank you; and got to see breathtaking cenotes and islands, all while creating beautiful imagery! 💙
See? I totally won.

It was golden hour in the rose garden yesterday, and it was filled with photographers all seeing this gorgeous scene their own way. The light tickled the edge of Liz’s belly and her baby girl joined in the fun by flipping around and kicking to our laughter! Liz is celebrating her baby number three by doing a portrait session with me and as a baby number three myself, I was happy to really focus (get it! 😆) on this little lady growing and loving around in her Momma’s perfect little belly 💚 .

While at Engage Banff last week I did a Personal branding session for my soul sister Catie Bane, in the shadow of the mountains in Banff, Canada. We dipped our toes into the icy river water and felt the chill run deep through our bones. We felt energized and ready for the week that lay ahead, whether as an active participant or as an observer, both had their merits. Catie and I talked about how we wanted to align ourselves with like-minded humans; people who brought joy to others through their actions, their words or their hearts. It’s harder to live your life with purpose and not just settle for what is given to you, but to weed out things that weigh you down, and let them get carried away by the current of the cold water.
Catie Bane is a source of love and light in my life, not just because as a stylist she makes me look and feel beautiful; but as my chosen sister she makes me feel loved and heard and seen. When she laughs it comes from so deep inside her you can’t help but laugh right back with her! As loud as that laugh is she also knows how to just be still and take in the beauty around her, and we did just that while sitting on this mossy river bank, with this incredible view. I would say I’m lucky to have Catie as my friend, but I don’t believe in luck; I believe in purpose. Her friendship brings me purpose and I am grateful for it and for her. #friendship #sisterbychoice #engage18 #banff #personalbranding
