I turned 34 today and on my Facebook wall, a friend said I should post a birthday self-portrait so that people could “like” it. In many ways, this is a pretty accurate account for most of my online storytelling – photos. That’s how I see and share the world and how people interact with me. So it was a fitting request and an idea that spawned a self-portrait with that in mind. An image of me as many people see me. It has my two of my favorite lenses – my iPhone and a Canon 50mm f/1.4.

Below is me and my boys blowing out the candles on my delicious home-made birthday cake.
