Of all of the things I’m most proud of in this life, it’s the relationship between my children. They are the very best of friends, and though they do disagree on occasion, most of my day is spent watching them play. When we drop Sunny off at school, the little guy cries out for her. “Sissy. Where Sissy go?” And when, at the end of the day, we pick her up he exclaims “Sissy! I here! I miss you!” When we take her to dance he presses his face up against the two way mirror, three tiny matchbox cars in hand, starring, watching, shouting “Sissy!!!!” So much of his life will be spent chasing her from one activity to another, until his activities finally outweigh hers. Where she walks, he follows. Who she loves, he loves too. What she says, goes. I do believe his “Sissy” is the most influential person in his life. I couldn’t have predicted this. I couldn’t have known that my children would be soul mates, but I should have guessed it. I do feel a little like the main character in The Notebook, when at the end of the book she finally realizes she only has moments to enjoy being back in her normal state. How much time do we have? That is to say, how long until the fights start, and the I hate you’s begin, and the get out of my rooms take over? I have made a conscious choice to enjoy this, for as long as we’ve got.

IMG_4368I had a wonderful time photographing the Acquaviva Family, this past weekend. It’s a very lucky day when you get to combine your work with your friends.  It’s even more lucky when you get to photograph identical twins, who happen to be as sweet as they are cute.

Gracie Fall 1

A few weeks back I stole a Saturday and drove out to the country to take Gracie’s Fall Photos, for this years Christmas card. She was a good sport and a sweet little model- while I dragged her form one side of the farm to the other.IMG_3007 IMG_3072 IMG_3093 IMG_3096 IMG_3097 IMG_3106 IMG_3108 IMG_3119

 

I’m not sure which picture will make the card this year- but I cherish these photos of her so much. She’s somewhere between toddlerhood and womanhood and it’s my favorite phase so far. Gracie Fall 3

I had the extreme pleasure to produce and edit Brennan + Danielle’s Wedding Film.

B&D First Look 1

D&B Blessing D&B Walk Away

I hope you all enjoy their trailer as much as I have enjoyed editing it.

While working on my photography and films I often find myself trying to walk away with a feeling, rather than a single goal. I often know when shooting photographs or editing films, when I’ve hit that thin red line that connects each of us (emotionally) to one another. It doesn’t happen every day, but when it does it feels a lot like…love. For those of you looking for a little inspiration, I find Ira Glass very helpful.

 

Congratulations Brennan & Danielle. Thank you for choosing Little Love Stories to capture your best day.

My brother, Christopher Statham, is by profession a fashion designer. He designs for Ann Taylor. Many of you reading this are likely wearing his designs right now or have them hanging in your closet, rotating his work during your work week.

He’s just launched his illustration work, for print, for stationary, &  for commissioned projects.
