Several weeks ago, we drove west to Kansas City to photograph an anniversary session for my colleague and friend from grad school, Britta. Her and her husband Zach had just adopted the most PRECIOUS puppy you will ever see, and they wanted to have this season of life captured. Naturally, I was thrilled, because not only is Britta beautiful, but she's a blast to be around... and so despite the clouds and less-than-warm temps, we wandered around KC - Wallace on leash - making the most of an overcast day.
As a former employee of Country Day, I have always found Lindsey’s role to be fascinating. Not only does she fulfill the part of a middle school science teacher, but she acts as director of (what is so lovingly known as) the “Little Barn” and caretaker of the furry friends that reside there. When I approached her about taking her pictures in the environment that she considers being a second home… she was reluctant. Barn life isn’t exactly textbook “pretty.” However, there is beauty in her relationship with the animals - how she interacts with them and cares for their space – and I felt so inspired to tell that story.
