“Having Kaley take our photographs was one of the most special gifts I’ve ever received. She captured the depth of my love for my son and our unique relationship in a way I didn’t realize was possible. She has a way of disappearing into your landscape so that you are able to just be yourselves as she works, and because of that, her work is so authentic. She doesn’t create a fairytale that you can’t relate to, there is a certain grittiness that I love. She is not afraid of the mess. She captures an honest and pure tenderness— it’s as if those still moments come alive. They evoke so much emotion when I look back at them. She is a master of detail— a father brushing away a golden curl from his daughter’s eyes, tiny arms wrapped around the back of a mother’s neck— little things that you don’t realize are important until you see the image and think, “wow, I don’t ever want to forget what it felt like when he held onto me that way.”
