Grace, American Housewife

Grace, American Housewife

Grace is an architect with a beautiful, expansive, modern home. She’s also a mother, writer, and American housewife. As a conservative Christian, Grace is interested in balancing tradition with customary aesthetics. There is a bit of a juxtaposition between a sense of a modern home and fashion against the conservatism of spiritual beliefs, but she...
Laura, American Housewife

Laura, American Housewife

We arrived early in the morning to start our day with our next Housewife. I was met by a visibly nervous Laura who confided in me that she had not slept due to her anxiety around the shoot and was even considering an early morning cocktail.  Although terrified, she was ready to step out of her comfort zone. Our first set asked a...

Jonathan, American Housewife

Jonathan, American Housewife

The next American Housewife in the series is Jonathan. We are redefining the term “Housewife” and Jonathan does this biologically.

Nina, American Housewife

Nina, American Housewife

She had arranged for an unusual trade between the home where she raised her two enthusiastic boys, a beautiful large house in the woods, for a cozy home closer to town. Some of the complications...
Brenda, American Housewife

Brenda, American Housewife

We photographed our first subject on a cold and snowy day in February 2011. My assistant of 5 years called in sick, a first, leaving me with my second assistant on her first day of assisting ever. We decided to move ahead as I had already been delayed a year, mainly due to the writer...
Pro Bono: The Bethesda Project

Pro Bono: The Bethesda Project

I was asked to create imagery that "comforted the afflicted and afflicted the comfortable." I set out to create portraits of the residents that showed homelessness affects all demographics. I wanted the portraits to convey transcendence, from a very difficult and dark time to a time that has hope and relief.
Dave's Chronicles (3 of 3)

Dave’s Chronicles (3 of 3)

When I shoot, I work quickly and intuitively shooting at times without looking at the subject, and looking for something I have not seen before. Because I am limited to 30 minutes at most per subject, I tend to shoot quite a bit, rather quickly, stopping to ask, listen, connect, and share.

Friends Count (2 of 3)

To my knowledge nothing like this had ever been attempted in the corporate world. I met Dave's private client at his office to interview him for an upcoming book of Dave's photographs.

Introduction: A Love Story (1 of 3)

I invited my coach of seven years, Ian Summers to help present this love story to my blogpost readers. This was our take.
Dave receives Graphis Gold

Dave receives Graphis Gold

Dave recently received gold from the 2014 Graphis Photography Annual. This is a passionate personal project that redefines the role of the American Housewife. Many people claim to respect housewives, but instead see only the resented and dated stereotype.
