Wading into 2018

Documentary Photography 2018

Some years I’m ready to jump into the new year with both feet. This year I’m wading in slowly. January is nearly through and I haven’t declared my New Years resolutions or inked out a to-do list on paper. The last months of the year tore by wet and hurried as a hurricane and I’m […]

Kelp & Moss: Snowshoeing, Mt. Washington

  During spring break we spent a couple of days up at Mt. Washington. Sean and I used to go up with friends when we were in university, but we had never taken the kids.

Generally they don’t have to do much actual modeling, they just need to be themselves and I do the rest. Usually I have a vision and […]
