Heritage has resonated in my mind lately. I love creating art and getting to spend time with the people who I document. Most of all, I love creating a piece of history that this family will look back on someday. One day they’ll show their kids and say: “This is what our first house looked like! Remember how we used to carry you up and down three levels? Oh sweet Tupelo. She was the best dog. You used to hate getting dressed, but you loved to eat!” It’s such an honor to be a photographer, and I cherish these times because I feel like I’m creating something important in this world, even if it’s just for this family of three.
The Livingstones are the sweetest family. Their little girl, Reece, loves to snuggle with her parents and eat grapes. I spent a morning with them, documenting the last few days in their first home before they move into a new chapter of their lives. Here are a few of my favorite moments.
