This collection of humanity contains some of my favorite people in the world.
It's been almost six years since I relocated to Oregon, and getting to connect with and photograph my Arizona clients each year is something I look forward to for the preceding 11 months, truly. Each of these families reminds me of the beauty that exists and flourishes in what was such a tumultuous desert for me, personally. I am honored to stand witness to the passage of time in their families - seeing kids age by one year increments is astounding and sobering. And their continued trust in me as a documenter-of-moments is humbling.
AZ crew, thank you for welcoming me each year for such special memories! Enjoy your preview!
