A Flagstaff Family Session

When a session is just like a poem... when the love is pure and authentic.... when the connection is dynamite.... well, that's when I count my lucky stars that this is my job.  I actually shot this session while teaching 20 other photographers, during a workshop is beautiful Flagstaff, Arizona.  The weather was on another level, the friendships made were lasting, and this family was just icing on the incredible double-fudge, triple-decker, calorie-free cake, that was the experience during that weekend.  

Capturing true connection has become my passion, and getting to teach about that passion has taken my expectations for this career to a another dimension.  I can honestly say that I've never been more fulfilled in any job, and for that, I'm exceptionally grateful.  

Now, a little bit more about these three.  Well, they happen to have been my best friends for the better part of a decade.  Watching them find each other, fall madly in love and make their family  has truly been an honor.  So, when I was searching for a family to model for my students, well, it was a no-brainer.  Their's is the kind of love you read about in books.  And baby Olivia....she will be a world-shaker, no doubt in my mind.

"I hope that real love and truth are stronger in the end than any evil or misfortune in the world." --Charles Dickens
