In honor of the upcoming Valentine’s Day, I’m sharing a little project called The Ones I Love.  From now until then I’ll be showcasing at least one photograph a day here on the blog that will match the theme.

As a father of two (my little ones are in the lower left of the photograph above) photographing them has been a joy as they grow and change, seemingly overnight.

Last year I had the good fortune to photograph 173 children for the Kids of OC charity book project.  Can you imagine how powerful these photographs will be to the family members in 10 years or even 20 years?

That’s the real gift in this work — it freezes these little slivers of time and allows us to come back to them easily and in the minute we hold or view the image.

We’re also running a Valentine’s Day promotion to coincide with this project.  To view more about that please click here.

Enjoy and thanks for following!
