This past November I travelled to the coast of northern California for a photography retreat with a small group of brilliant and inspiring artists. During my short stay I was fortunate to be reminded of what is truly important in this life and work, and to have my goals brought sharply into focus again. Reflecting on the past year and looking to the days ahead, these are my goals for this work:

1. Provide for my family (now of three!) Our sweet son, Joseph David, is one month old today. :)
2. Create images I am proud of
3. Connect with, learn from, love and serve as many people along the way as possible

Surely, I do these imperfectly, and I am indebted to many kind friends who have graciously helped me along this path. Thank you to the couples, families, and friends who have opened their lives, stories and hearts to me this past year. Genuine connection is what this work is all about, so here’s to another year of connection, learning, growing, striving, and loving. God bless, friends.
