An extended, day-in-the-life experience for adventures big and small.
Capturing a Legacy
Are your memories like mine – sprinkled with a few big moments and family milestones but rooted, deeply, in the everyday rhythms of your childhood home?
Your family photos should shine a light on
the legacy you are building
through both quiet days at home
and big shared adventures.
“David is beyond words.
He clearly is an artist and loves what he does.”
– Sanya S
“Beauty can spontaneously occur at any moment given the proper circumstances, context, or point of view.”
– Leonard Koren

The secret truth is that everything, everyday is extraordinary.
Those first moments of the morning, just you and a cup of coffee.
Those little bumps down the stairs that mean the day’s chaos is about to begin.
The full on wildness of the day, the beauty of everything happening all at once, all the time.
Those rare moments of silence before bedtime, when your daughter curls up on the couch and uses the dog as a pillow.
You are working hard in ways that often go unseen.
I want to make heirloom images that capture that work, that joy as it is. Wild, extraordinary.
The power of adventure
This is not about the kind of camper van you own or the drama of your Instagram grid.
This kind of adventure is about intentionally walking into a story whose ending you can’t quite predict.
About sharing sunshine and rain, summits and valleys.
About creating a legacy for your children and with your children.
You believe in your family. You believe in the potential of each individual and in the collective power of the whole.
I want to make heirloom images that see the power of that belief.
A Story of Home
This is going to feel like one of those rare, slow mornings when you can stretch and yawn in the warm summer light streaming through your curtains as your mind drifts free.
WE WILL BE IN NO RUSH.
Everyday sessions are a commitment to taking our time and settling into the rhythms and rituals that make up your every day.
Documenting the Journey
These are moments that you want to live completely. You want to be totally present, not watching them through a camera.
But you also want to remember.
Oceans, rivers, mountains, forests – I’ll follow your family wherever you’re headed, and I’ll capture the adventure in an honest and artful way.
“Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air.”

“David’s art is enhanced by his many years of experience surfing, rafting, climbing, skiing, and connecting with the outdoors.”

You don’t sit around the computer with your kids and look at old pictures. Commit to yourself that after all that we put into this artful and honest look at your family, you will make an album of it.
Or, maybe a handcrafted frame of upcycled local wood (my specialty :).
In your gallery, you will find a curated list of my favorite print products, including this timeless heirloom album. And I will be there to guide you through creating it.
My calendar fills up fast, so make sure to get in touch today to find some availability. Summer, Fall, and weekends often fill at least 6 weeks in advance.
