the singh family

    

Seeing these four lovely people through my lens over the past few years has not only chronicled some of their growth as a family, but it's also shown me that I continue to be most inspired when I'm working with families in their own home, while they really just hang out and do normal family things. I realize how difficult it can be to "be yourself" when there's an outsider with a camera clicking constantly nearby--trust me, I know--but this family just lets me in, with no pretense and no apprehension, and I couldn't be more grateful for that.  Maybe it's because I've worked with them enough times before, and that I genuinely enjoy their company as friends, but their honesty and authenticity makes my job as their photographer an absolute joy, and I truly believe it's what also makes their images come together so beautifully year after year. These moments were all going to happen (mostly) independently of my presence, and I was just lucky enough to be in the right place, at the right time.
