My husband, Luke, really is one of the wisest people I know even though he says he still feels like an angsty teenager. He is an amazing father and continually reminds our kids how loved they are. When I asked him to pose for this photo, he said this was his wise face .

I love photographing my friends and their kids. As I have stated in past entries, the concept of photographing mothers and their babies together is one of my favorite types of shoots---only second to photographing a mom's pregnant belly. My friend Kiley has an extremely deep love for her son, one year old Brixton, and the two together were a complete delight to photograph. Kiley is extremely creative, a deep feeler with a passion and heart for God and her family. I hope you can feel that part of her in these photos.
My photo teacher in high school told me that it was imperative I carry my camera around with me everywhere as the most beautiful and amazing moments that need to be remembered happen as we go through our normal routine. I love to look through my lens because for me it is like seeing the world through God's eyes: the world is on fire with color and inspiration.

I had coffee with my friend Kiley this morning and I noticed when we both get excited about a topic, we talk with our hands. For me, it is fun to see people light up and become "awake" and excited as they talk about their story from God's perspective. That is a powerful topic and one that involves lots of expressive hand movement and facial expressions. See photos below:
