The Family Project unofficially began in 2005.  I was longing to rediscover to the roots of my passion and return to simpler times.  No lighting, no location scouting, no assistants.  Just me and my camera. 

 

At the time, I had just gotten engaged, was living far from home, and was just getting to know my future family. 

As the everyday and the special days would come and go, and the images slowly accumulated, a portrait of a loving and close-knit family began to reveal itself to me.
