I have spent my career studying the unique shape of the pregnant woman. With my most recent series, I am studying the landscape created by this form. When the images are printed large, the form becomes foreign. Worthy of examination and discussion, this shape represents an area of the women’s body that is surrounded by debate of ownership, degradation by toxic environments, and depravation of corporate fertility centers charging exorbitant
During the 2004 election campaign, I was really bothered that gay marriage was so controversial. In response I decided to do a series of portraits of gay families to show that the love of these parents for their children was no different than straight parents. My hypothesis was simple. If those against marriage equality could see the love of the families in my photos, perhaps they could see the gay
I spent ten days at an artists’ retreat this past August and had a fantastic time. What came out of the program was a renewed sense of commitment to keep on progressing with my work with the pregnant female form. After many late night discussions with an artist friend (usually over wine which is so stereo typical), I decided I wanted to break the maternal nude into two categories, one
I recently did a proof edit over the phone with one of my favorite clients. I have been working with her long enough that we have similar discussions about images we like and images we think work together.

I decided to seek some assistance from the Facebook Community. And wow, people came through. I think this is the most response I have ever had on a posting. I like Facebook because even though
I first met this family for a maternity photography session nine years ago. This family shoot was our fourth together and our third family photography session. They are happy people and now that they have three boys, there is a lot going on and it was a lot of fun! One of my favorite photos from the take is the family photograph of all five of them together. It is
Wow. Ever had a shoot where the baby is just one big lovely ball of energy? I had that happen with Jackson in our baby photography session in SF! When I teach classes I tell my students to connect energetically with their clients. This to me is a very important component of photography – connection, or shooting from the heart instead of the head, as my mentor Bryan Moss would
I met Katisha and her husband during our maternity photography session more than a year ago. They purchased our Platinum plan which includes three photography sessions which meant I got to see them to photography Kyle as a newborn. These images are from our third and final shoot. It is so much fun to see him grow. He is so cute, curious and full of life! The below images are
