This is my Grandfather's small backyard vineyard. He has been growing Muscadine and Scuppernong for almost 30 years, and using these grapes to make his own wine. On my last visit, he drove me around (on the bat mobile) and talked about his process, and all the other plants around the yard.
When your brother asks for you to take his portrait, you say yes...and give him options. It was a privilege to be able to do this, and so fun! Oh, and Scotty (Mom's Greyhound) and Dad made an appearance.
Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard
I cannot express how much I fell in love with this place... it was a challenge to edit down. Thanks to one of my best friends, Katie, this was possible.
This orchid was a birthday present from my now Fiancé in 2015. I repotted it in 2016, and just keeps multiplying! Time to repot again!

Bird houses scattered along the trail at Bass Lake in Holly Springs, NC.
I found this project from my Concepts in Photography course. They are floor plans of my childhood homes recreated from memory, using old photographs taken by my father and myself. Looking back, I definitely needed to include more photographs and parts of other memories. The last image is a book I made with this series as a gift to my father.

My family and I started the new year visiting my Grandfather in Georgia. It was such a memorable time catching up and listening to my Grandfather's incredible life stories. His property tells a lot about him and his interests.
It was so fun walking around downtown Atlanta with my parents seeing where they used to work and hang out. My Mom remembers the "Save the Fox" stickers in the '80s, thankfully it was saved and is still used for shows.
My Granny and Granddad lived off of Main Street in Springboro, OH. This October, my brother and I walked around the historical Underground Railway town.
I will always remember the wonderful childhood visits to their home. In memory of Eska and Earl Winkler.
Despite the rainy fall day, it was so fun photographing Megan, Adam, and baby Waylon.
