He tells me to sit, then points at the chair by his crib. Then he squeezes his eyes tight and I sing him 1 or 2 songs.

A birthday kiss. I turn 35 this wednesday--had to google to make sure ---and for my birthday I'm letting you take $35 off #teethkissworkshop!!! Just follow the link in my profile and enter BirthdayKiss at checkout to get the deal!
There's a story I tell a lot-- about how I always love to make my birthday my "ideal day." About making sure to do all of my favorite things, about how it always helps me be my truest self-- alive, charming, grateful, intentional and free. I realized at some point I didn't have to wait for one day a year to choose my life. To set up conditions and an environment where I could thrive as my brightest self. I could do that every day. I could do that with my art. I could do that with every breath. teethkiss is a lot about helping you have the same awakening with your craft. About figuring out how to choose your story, your art, according to your own true loves and gifts, your own definition of ideal. I can't think of anything I want for my birthday more, than to share with you exactly how to find the creative permission it took me years to give myself. Teethkiss can help, I know it. xx #film #teethkissworkshop

the overwhelming feedback from those who've bought my downloadable photography workshop teethkiss is that it's so different than any other workshop they have experienced. Why? Because it's built on the premise and hard work of identifying your OWN creative voice. If you are a soulful creator who desperately wants your work to mean something, not just look pretty, but you are unsure how to close the gap from imitation to meaning, teethkiss is for you. It asks you to be brave enough to take a hard look at who you are, what you want, and how you are going to build a cohesive art that will better your life as well as help others. "I have been chasing myself for years. Many dollars spent, lenses bought, workshops studied and I have finally started to land - or fly. My heart may have been cracked wide open with this gift of a workshop, or better yet, the space it has created." -Kyla hornberger
What do you get for the $300 price tag? •10 videos (including footage from 4 session) that are:
-3.5 hours of teaching/pouring heart out -3.25 hours of session footage along with -99 page PDF (that is radly designed, full of photos and text, might I add) (option to print said PDF, might I also add)
•access to a community of artists going through this process right along with you
the clip you see here, is from the first video in the workshop. I hope you join me. 😌. Link to purchase in profile.

The screaming death of fall. I don't just love it. I recognize it -the cry inside of us on every tree, getting out just in time-- being full and seen before being nothing at all.

This was me last week pre talk at @thehybridco . Despite it making me sick and shakey and scared, I love to speak to groups. I love sharing messages in the hopes of helping someone out there feel less alone and maybe even helping them align with their own voice and creative path. Still.
When I speak I get nervous. When I shoot I get nervous. When I write I get nervous. When I walk down the street I get nervous. When I post on Instagram I get nervous. When I do anything I get nervous. Living makes me nervous. I guess it's called anxiety. Rationally and even in a heart based way, I can understand the millions of reasons not to be nervous. That we are all human. That we are all one. That love is all that matters. I read and listen to so much on the subject of basically how to live a good life from a space of truth, kindness and compassion. I meditate. I do yoga. I talk to god. And yet. There it is inside of me. Some unknowable fear and despair. Of what? Of who? I don't have that answer (except to say everything). But I do think so much of what I've learned, what I've made, what I teach have been a direct response to exploring this issue. To figuring out how to live, love, make and move through the world despite something at a cellular level resisting with a scream. I'm sharing this not because I think my struggle is unique or particularly sad. I don't. I'm bored of hearing myself talk about it to be honest. But I'm sharing because I think there are other people struggling too. And I want them (you) to know I'm here next to you, your fellow human on planet earth. I hope we keep making things, asking questions, trying to help, and getting closer to our hearts as long as we can.

got to talk to my friend @jenny__stein on her podcast, the family photographer. She is a lovely human and the two conversations I've had with her have left me lighter. Listen in on iTunes if you have some time on your hands. There might be a teethkiss discount in it for you. With regard to my own podcast, the lovelovelove, I have been working to pursue stories and accumulate content. I think the intimacy of the first two episodes have left me feeling pressured to maintain intensity, when really I have content for two more episodes that is light and fun. I could probably get those up for you pretty soon. Done is better than perfect right? Right. Onward. Photo by @wendylaurel

I have one and ONLY ONE teaching opportunity left this year and it's next week! So who is coming to hang with me at @thehybridco? Two days of rad speakers and classes specifically geared to help digital and film hybrid shooters. I'll be speaking about achieving ultimate ease with clients (look at that guy, he looks chill, right?) and teaching a 3 hour master class which is pretty dang intimate. It's not too late to sign up! Utah is in its element this time of year, so get ovah here, I'd love to meet you. #film

this is faye. She is cray. In the best way. Making her own reali-tay (this caption is what happens when I spend too long trying and failing to describe what it was like to watch her this morningin awe---playing while we all shivered, wishing I could see the world in her head as clearly as I could see the world around her).

what you're really looking at is a very complex sweater metaphor for our entire relationship.
