When I walked into Claire and James home I felt so relaxed and welcome I felt like I’d known them for years. They are both just wonderful and I am so happy to have gotten to share such a special time with them.

Something I work on constantly is cultivating fearlessness, challenging myself and doing work that is inspired by the people it is about while making it as true to my artist self as possible. Claire had that fearlessness, her love of photography and her willingness to try something different was really awesome. The rest of the images will be ready soon but I had to share a few.

They are going to be amazing parents.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
