Marsden DITL


In London I photographed the Marsden Family, visiting from outside the city, as part of my mentoring experience with Kirsten Lewis. We started in their airbnb and ventured out to the art museum to capture the family experiencing London together. I learned so much from Kirsten, and I'm so happy with the images we got from this session. Most of all it was very reassuring as she reaffirmed that I was making good choices as I shot. She gave me the ability to calm down and believe in myself and let myself create my art without feeling obligated to capture everything. It really boosted my confidence as an artist overall and reminded me what I love about this work.

And as always, I fell in love with the family I photographed. These kids have some serious personality and I love the way their parents encouraged them and also patiently pressed on through the meltdowns and madness. These are my favorites--enjoy!
