ABOUT JOE & the BEAR
Photographing moments has always been a skill I never had the patience to learn. Cameras are intimidating, the moments you're attempting to photograph can't be forced, and timing is everything. It wasn't until I had my son, Emmett, that I started to see natural beauty in everything he did. I wanted to make sure when he got older I could show him how beautiful he was as a child. His innocence, his curiosity, his general life progression. So I was determined to learn how to capture those moments in the most raw form.
That eventually led to wanting others to have those visuals for their lives as well. So I created JOE & the BEAR. Named after the nicknames I gave to the two people I love the most, my son and his mother. Joe (Erica) and my Bear (Emmett).
