One of the best things I ever learned while becoming a photographer, and to this day, one of my favorite lines to recite, is that the best camera you could ever have is the one you have with you. Such great advice for any photographer! Hell, great advice for anyone. Also, it could not have been more true for our latest trip to New Orleans, especially since we forgot to pack our cameras.

My son is 10. Wow. Every year it surprises me. You'd think I'd get used to it, it being on the same day and all. Sometimes I want to be able to freeze time and keep him just the way he is. Then another year comes and goes, and I find that I like this age best so far. So far, I like 10 best. So I guess growing up isn't too bad.

I firmly believe that the couples that Ed and I get along with best are those that have similar values as our own. I think that's true for a lot of relationships, actually. We easily build a rapport and intuitively know what is most important to them. This makes photographing their story and their important moments so much easier! Ed and I have been married long enough that we can tell you in an instant what is most important to us: family, friends, and living a good life to the fullest. We love to celebrate anything (we don't need much of an excuse for a party!), and as long as our loved ones are near, we're good.

Morgan and Mike started their relationship long distance, and they have done a lot of traveling since the beginning. So it was only natural that when it came time to tie the knot, they wanted a destination wedding. They both now live in Atlanta, and they wanted somewhere close enough that their friends and family could drive and celebrate a whole weekend with them. When they saw the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, they knew they found the perfect place!

At least once an hour, Ed will turn to me and just say, "Vegas, baby!" We're not really sure where that came from (an old episode of Friends, maybe?), but worse, we're not sure why it's funny. Every. Time. Our first trip to Vegas has been...

We got her the iPhone that she had requested. She opened it with delight, but she pretty much knew she was getting it. She was thankful, don't get me wrong. But we're her parents. Even the world's coolest gadget doesn't always mean as much as a...

I love photos where the subject is laughing. I mean, truly, really, laughing. When all cares about the camera are gone, and the true spirit is present. It's as natural as you can get, and it's just fun. These are my favorite photos to capture, and...
