This week’s collection is quieter, more real, and much less “manufactured,” I think. I love real images, images that aren’t made but discovered. The more I think about it, the more right it feels to want to photograph life as it is – not life in a tidy box. The deepest emotions and the truest moments always seem to happen when no one is trying to make them happen.

When I started my first blog in 2010, I really had no idea what I was doing.

My focus was on photography (and I’ll admit right now that I wasn’t very good!), and I considered my blog a fun…
