I love photographing families. Documenting real life, real connections, and all the beautifully mundane details in between is where my heart is. But when I have the chance to do that with complete artistic and creative freedom, then my heart explodes…in a good way.
Courtney, wife of Mike and mother of their three beautiful children, is an incredibly talented photographer who sees beauty in the world in a unique way, and who appreciates and values the voices of a broad range of artists…in photography and beyond. So when she invited me to document her family, I knew that it could be something really special.
We spent an evening together at Chimney Bluffs State Park in Wolcott, NY. I am so incredibly grateful to Courtney and Mike for giving me the opportunity to create this photo story. It’s probably my favorite one yet.
Here’s to summer fun, family history, and gratitude…all making this photographer’s heart very full.
