Sun Apr 15 at 5:52pm - Easter Reflection

These days I find myself reciting T.S. Eliot: "April is the cruellest month, breeding / Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing / Memory and desire, stirring / Dull roots with spring rain." In other words, starting again only revives a painful past.

But I don't really believe that. We're visiting family, and in Maine woods it's hard to see how this could be anything but a hopeful season. Osiris rises. Persephone returns. The stone is rolled away.

Sun Apr 9 at 5:41pm - Chasing Light

The best cure for cabin fever is Wakefield Lake. Unleashed, our toddler ran everywhere. Under the slide, up the hill, around the gazebo, back down to the beach. He's a natural explorer. He just hasn’t figured out how to point with one finger. I love that. His stocky little body and big gestures often remind me of Calvin from Calvin & Hobbes. (Now there's a shoot idea!)

Sun Oct 23 at 6:13pm - Fall Portraits

The Krizova family met us at Breakheart Reservation as the sun began to set. We knew right away that the camera would love them. The girls (Madeline and Matilda) couldn't stop smiling, and there were plenty of hugs to go around.

Tues July 27 at 8:47pm - Getaway

This weekend we took our first kid-free vacation since becoming parents. Below are some photos from our stay at the Portland Harbor Hotel.

We had a blast shooting with Lyndsay, Thomas, and little Chloe. Isn't she the definition of adorable? Our toddler knows Chloe from the local Fit4Mom workout class. Trying to help, Henry called out "CHEESE!" whenever I lifted the camera.

Tues May 12 at 7:05am - The New Guy

This weekend I picked up Canon's newest lens, the 50mm f/1.8 STM. With a smooth Stepper Motor focusing system, a metal mount, and seven rounded aperture blades, this guy is my favorite "nifty fifty."
