The day-to-day life of a parent isn’t always pretty. Getting my kids fed, dressed, lunches packed and out the door is similar to what I believe herding wild sheep is like. But when I think back to the past 5 years and the images I’ve taken of them, those tough times take on a whole different meaning. I see their smiles and laughs, their goofy faces and absurd dance moves, and can’t help but smile.

I believe that these moments – the un-posed happenings of everyday life – are the moments that define us and our family.

If you ask my children “what does Daddy do for a living” they’ll tell you “make memories.” While I don’t actually make the memories, I do preserve them. I love what I do and if I won the lottery tomorrow, I would continue to pick up my camera and document this crazy, beautiful life.

My most prized possessions are the memories of moments and experiences I’ve had with my wife and children. Most were shot at home, hanging out with each other, doing nothing – my favorite.
