Mom and the Dogs // Cleveland, OH // Portrait

WE MOVED THE COUCH INTO THE DINING ROOM so that it was flooded with light. The beauty in doing a shoot at your own house is that all of the rooms can become your studio... and your dogs are there too. My mom and I have been planning on updating her headshots for a while now and it was wonderful being able to make photographs of her.

I'm beginning to sound like a broken record, but this winter break has been eye opening for me in a few ways. The most profound thing I've discovered, perhaps, is the fact that I am lucky to be here... lucky to be surrounded by these people, making photos that matter to them as much as they matter to me.  These moments are fragile and fleeting, and some day these photos will simply become memories, the edges getting fuzzier as the years go by. But I am lucky to be able to stamp these moments in time as they were.
