. . . why patchwork photography? . . .


every time i send an e-mail, i wonder why in the world i chose such a long name to represent our photography business . . .

every time i am talking with someone, and they ask, “patrick photography?” and i have to answer “no.  PATCHWORK – like a quilt,” i wonder, what was i thinking . . .

maybe it was the season of life i was in – that season when i baked a lot . . . home schooled my children . . . tried my hand at sewing (if you know me . . . that might have given you a chuckle!  ha!)


it doesn’t take me long to remember, though . . .

when i am looking through a series of pictures from a recent session, i don’t think i can escape it . . .

patchwork – like a quilt – stitching pieces together

like a quilt – stitching pieces of your story – together

through pictures


sometimes i think i have to explain

sometimes i think i have to tell you what you are seeing

then i remember

i remember that i started to take pictures to tell a story

i didn’t decide to use paper and pen

i didn’t decide to stand up and speak

i decided to let my images do the talking

i decided to stitch together memories – parts of a story –

your story

    Ashley and Josh beautiful photos! My family and I have had such a great time looking through all of them. Your photographer was really great at capturing all the love and details between you and Josh. We all could feel the love in the air that day. 10 years together and so amazingly happy. I’m really proud of you both.

    These pictures are so beautiful. Very creative poses and camera angles. Everyone looked very comfortable with the photographer and very natural and like they were having a lot of fun. Loved the pictures at the Lexington gardens and the one of Ashley in the bathtub at the mansion was so unique. I loved all the photos even moreso cuz I love both of them so much and they are so happy being together. Thanks for helping make their day so special.
