When we arrived for the photo shoot, one year old Mathew was still sleeping. We followed the mother and father upstairs as they went to wake him for the shoot. I don't want people to get ready for the shoot, I shoot what's happening from the moment I arrive. I'm interested in what happens during those in between times. I'm photographing the unplanned, spontaneous, life happening moment by moment. This is the juice.
