At Home with the Hawleys

At Home with the Hawleys

I met Samantha and Caleb 8 years ago at Caleb's show in Hells Kitchen, NY and I think I may have said to Samantha that night- We need to be friends. They are the sweetest, nicest people and I'm so happy that I got the chance to help them document the start of their...

Buddies Graduation Session

Buddies Graduation Session

For any of you that know me, I am not usually a germaphobe. I've brushed dirt off of food on a camping trip and eaten it after I've washed my hands using a canteen and some dish soap. I'm not constantly disinfecting or using hand sanitizer. I do practice common sense...
