Baby Esme

Not too long ago, I got to visit Cassie and Mark, friends from church who have recently become parents. Their love is something I have looked up to for years and has now birthed beautiful, clever baby Esme. I hope you find their family as lovely as I do:

Joy and Kyle have posed in front of my camera during their engagement, on their wedding day, and now in the anticipation of their first child. In a few months, I will get to take pictures of another Wendling…little Hollings Frances-May. :)




This is a PSA I created, narrated by my friend Luis and featuring the guys down at St. Vincent DePaul Soup Kitchen.

“1 in 6 women have survived an attempted or completed sexual assault.

We are the sons, husbands, and fathers helping the women we love heal.

Are you one of us? Do you know if you are?



This is my dear friend Shirley, one of the wisest, sassiest, most gentle souls I know. Here’s to you, Shirlgirl.
