Christmas Tea.



Wyatt turns 4.



Did he ask "What's your favorite toy?"?  No, he's asking "What's your favorite droid?".

Oh Wyatt.  Bless your sweet heart.  Thank goodness the market for Star Wars toys is vast and varied.

Sisters: Jenna + Lauren



What gorgeous relatives I have.  These two bright and beautiful people are so special to me, and I was thrilled to spend Thanksgiving afternoon with them, tromping through wet leaves and tall grass.

World Relief



I had the privilege of spending an afternoon photographing this remarkable, dear family.  They are incredible people with an incredible story, one that deserves telling.  Sameer, his wife, Hanan, and their children are refugees from Iraq, now living in the Kent area.  World Relief is helping them through this daunting transition, walking alongside them, and giving them the support and encouragement they need to be successful.  

We were welcomed into their new home, Hanan generously offering us date cookies and Jordanian coffee (spiced with cardamom, incredible).  The children eagerly modeled their Halloween costumes, and more reluctantly shared with us their Halloween candy.  We drove to a nearby park where, with the help of a translator, we were able to corral the kids long enough to take some photographs.  As the sun began to set and our good light was retreating, we returned to their apartment.  Here, I sat in awe, as Sameer recounted for us their harrowing flight out of Iraq to the Al-Waleed Refugee Camp, and eventually to the United Staes.

You can read more about their journey HERE.

Frances & Fern Photography



I am so pleased and beyond excited to introduce to you Frances and Fern Photography.

As close friends and family know, I spent the summer working as an intern for the brilliant and wonderfully talented Chantal Andrea.  I am exceptionally grateful for the experience and the tools I added to my belt.  What's more, I will continue to work and shoot collaboratively with Chantal Andrea Photography as an associate photographer.

I invite you to take a look around my new site (you'll find a link conveniently placed in the bar above).  In the coming months I hope to be able to share many new projects with you. 

Goboot has been instrumental in this process and I will continue to use this space to share the joys and daily musings of life.  However, Goboot will also serve as a blog for current Frances & Fern work - where business and pleasure collide, if you will.  

So here we go!  

P.S. Some of you may be wondering where I come up with these obscure and seemingly 
meaningless names... Goboot, Frances & Fern.   They were each been born out of routine moments in my married adventure and hold a measure of whimsy and encouragement for me.  I don't have much more of an explanation that can be quickly divulged here.
