Maybe you’ve heard that I have started a new project…not to replace, but to *add to* T.Spoon Photography, high school senior portraits, and commercial photography. It’s called The Love Offensive and it’s a lifelong project in the making combining photography, yoga, and world travel. Our basic ethos is to empower the body and free the mind so we can truly see and celebrate each other all over the world. I hope that sounds as awesome to you as it does to me!
I just held The Love Offensive for Girls at my house last weekend, and it was truly a blast! I had eleven 11-year-olds over for a day to teach them yoga and photography. What we really talked about was stilling the mind, trusting yourself, listening to each other, and making each other feel seen, beautiful, and special. It was a really good day, and the girls left exhausted and feeling excited about their new skills behind the lens and on the mat.
I’ll be holding The Love Offensive for Girls all over the area (and beyond) and I’d love to work with your daughter/school/girl scout troop/running club (you get the idea :)). I have all sorts of dates on the calendar with different groups of girls, and I’m super stoked! If you’d like to sign your daughter up for the next open day-long Love Offensive, please sign up on the website: www.theloveoffensive.com/girls
Thank you so much for your endless support as I try to live my life as a supportive, love giving, mood boosting girl myself. Everything you have ever done for me is greatly appreciated and utterly humbling. Thank you.
Before you read on, please take a minute and read Lizzy’s birth story here. Her life and health are miracles, and she is an angel to Marilyn, her mama, and all her aunties! Marilyn’s sisters were in town for the weekend and we all met up in the arboretum during peak foliage. They danced and sung to little Lizzy until she got her groove and started bouncin’! She is utterly adorable and I’m so so so glad our paths have crossed! YAY Lizzy!!
I’m not sure why I’ve chosen the following photographs as ‘best’. I don’t know if they’re the very best photographs or if I just absolutely love these people. Maybe I cried when I watched their slide show or when I got in the car after the shoot. I had an incredible year. I was in California, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin twice. And of course, my Massachusetts family has continued to blow me away with your support and love. Thank you, EVERYONE. You’re the very best families in the whole. wide. world.
I was lucky enough to photograph Jess and Ben’s wedding in 2009. Their wedding has been our sample album for many years so a lot of couples might feel like they know these two beauties. Well, since then they have moved to Newton and had BEYOND GORGEOUS Mina!! I am THE luckiest kid in the world to know these people and call them friends. Thank you thank you THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Many years ago I first heard of Squam Art Workshops from my best friend Kate who had found it through a blog called Soule Mama. She talked about it like it was this colorful, creative, positive, woodsy, fun dream. One day, she thought, she’d love to get there.
Yessss!!! How fun is it to see a gorgeous, fun, generous family every other year and each time I visit there’s (literally) another adoooorrrable child. Answer: It’s wicked fun. Please take five seconds and see their FIRST shoot and their SECOND shoot. So, the Kroeker family has moved to Mill Valley. Right next to a little baseball player ya might have heard of, Barry Bonds. Because I’m an American woman I am in good company when I’m impressed by pure scandal and celebrity so I’m totally impressed with their new neighborhood. 🙂 OK, so since I’ve been to visit, baby John has arrived. John is the most adored, adorable, free spirit on planet California, and I’m in the fan club big time. William is the third kid, and is soooo funny. He literally will not smile normally at the camera. Like refuses, but in this wicked funny, manipulative, quiet way. He pretends, very quietly, that he’s not quite sure HOW to smile. It’s so obvious and such a riot. He’s the cool, low key, funny guy in the crowd. (insert that emoji with hearts for eyes). Heidi is the most beautiful little girl in the world so I mean, no big. SHe’s suuuuper sweet and quiet and stylish and wicked loving. Andrew is the oldest, and he’s a gem. Very smart, very talented, very low key, a great big brother, and a great son. Chi and Karl are the mom and dad, and I absolutely and whole heartedly adore these two. They love their children and their community. They’re honest and real and open and SO INSANELY generous to me. I end up staying for much longer than I planned because we get into these deep conversations about the meaning of life. And yes, I run around this gorgeous home of theirs and then embrace them and jump up and down and scream, “I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!!!!! LOOK AT YOUR LIFE!!!” It’s a great friendship, and I’m wicked WICKED lucky to be trusted by this family. I love you guys. Please adopt me.
I’m beyond excited to announce that I’m offering my first three-week photography e-course! I’ve put every trick and technique I know into lessons that are delivered twice weekly straight to your inbox so you can take the kind of photos that capture the essence of someone and celebrate the people you love! This is not a technical photography course.. this is a course on how to truly capture the love and beauty you see in the people of the world!
