I am feeling deep gratitude to my clients, family and friends. You have trusted me to interpret your stories, moments, relationships and self image.
Thank you for inspiring me, you all continue to change my view into something I like to see in print.

I guess, like all mom's, we just want a family photo. There is an awesome new app for iPhone that turns it into a remote for my camera while it is connected to the Mac. I didn't remove it from the images...I think it's cool.
With a home studio I figure I am entitled to a family portrait on every holiday. My boys are pretty good at looking at the camera, as I have demanded it from them since birth. We are a bunch of hams....especially after church when all we want to do is sleep and the crazies set in.

There were so many reasons I felt connected to this tattoo, this was part of the inspiration:
Man Ray revolutionized the photography world by his rejection of the traditional and the invention of Surreal Photography. This image is a double exposure of his young wife and a violin.
My image below is a single exposure suggesting me as a surreal subject. This is not a comparison, only a tribute to the artist, and a reminder to myself as an artist that only in becoming the art could I ever hope to understand my subjects.
