I want to live an authentic life, even in this digital age. But I won't lie - I've too often been caught in the tempting aesthetic of a perfectly posed photo. I love the glossiness of a curated and captured moment. I love to stare at them. I love to create them. This blog is an attempt to reconcile my staged frozen frames with the depth that exists just outside of the lens ... real life is not a polished picture!

I wear a lot of hats, but I'm most proud of the wife and mom ones!
