Judah Wilde and Jeremiah Cole should be coming into the world as I type!

 

I spent a little time with my friend and colleague McBee Photography and her boys Saturday, to document one of their last days as a family of Mom and three boys, to Mom and five boys.
She’s always said she’d like to run a home for boys someday. May not be the way she’d originally envisioned achieving that goal, but she’s making it happen all on her own!
She is such a Superwoman. I was being a bit of a brat and HAD to find an instrumental version of Book of Love (the song sheet on their piano) for their slideshow, and couldn’t find a simple one I liked to purchase. So I texted her and said, “Hey I know you’re a single mother of three and business owner who’s 39 weeks pregnant with twins and all but can you play Book of Love and record it for 3 1/2 minutes? In your spare time tonight?”
And 10 minutes later I got the audio file, with apologies for it being rough.
But it didn’t sound rough to me. It sounded charming and personal and imperfectly perfect.

On pins and needles waiting to hear the news!

Last year was a good year.

 

I laughed, I cried, it was better than Cats!

 

At a 2012 wedding, I was walking past a groom who was waiting in an alcove for his wedding ceremony to start, in mere minutes. He was a little verklempt, and I raised my camera, then paused, looked at him, and said,

“Is this OK? Or would you prefer privacy?”

And he said, “No, stay. I want the truth. Well… I want the truth, maybe just a little bit more beautiful.”

Yep.  That’s why I do this.

 

The truth, maybe just a little bit more beautiful.

 

With that philosophy in mind, here’s a look back at  some of the sessions and weddings I shot over the year– a good mixture of both candid and posed and/or planned shots.

My goal for 2013 is to shoot candid moments with more intention and purpose, so that I produce single images that can stand alone and tell stories.

 

Here’s what we did in 2012:
