THE PAST 7 MONTHS.

sifting through my archives the other night, i realized i had tons of images that i’d always meant to share, but just hadn’t had the time to assemble and post. i’m happy to finally be able to blog some of these shots (a combination of family, engagement, wedding and editorial work) from the past 7 months. thanks, as always, for visiting and looking! cheers, mw.

HIDE & SEEK.

a couple months ago, i put together a kids shoot playing on the idea of “hide & seek.” huge thank yous to dane, sarah, nyrie, rachel, dara, michelle & sheila for your incredible talents. this shoot wouldn’t have come together without your help. and thank you to all the kids and parents who braved the heat and spent the day with us! below are a handful of favorites. mw

CEREAL MAGAZINE.

cereal is a beautiful magazine, worthy of collecting and displaying proudly on your coffee table or bookshelf. i couldn’t be more excited to have shot this surf story for their newest volume. visit their website here for more info and to subscribe! mw

THE FUTORAN FAMILY.

life with a new baby makes it tough to stay on top of things, and unfortunately, this blog is one of the things that’s been neglected. but now that i’m starting to find a little more time here and there to catch up with work, i’m going to do my best to post a little more often because i have a lot of work that i’m excited to share! below, a handful of images from a recent family session in los angeles. hope you enjoy. mw

A PEEK INTO OUR NEW NURSERY (AND BABY ELEPHANT).

almost 3 months ago, margaux and i welcomed our little boy into the world. just typing that sentence blows my mind. it still doesn’t feel real.

now, we couldn’t be happier to share a little peek into his brand new room, courtesy of our wonderful friend sharon, and her animal print shop nursery project. with the help of the ever-talented designer morgan satterfield, the nursery exceeded all of our expectations. you can see more photos and all the room sources over at sharon’s blog right here and see the sweet baby elephant print right here.

and big thanks to onefortythree, the minimalist and oeuf for supplying us with the goods. mw
