I love a good first hug: That moment when the expected kiss just isn't enough and you just have to hold on to your love.

Erika and Mark share an active moment of ecstasy on the dance floor.

Hey all, this is Ryan. On social media, it's usually Ryan, just because that's how we divvy up tasks. E-mail us and the voice of our company will probably be Tatiana. I write in a unitary voice sometimes just because it's really weird to talk in the third person all the time, but every aspect of us is best understood as an "us." Tatiana and I are basically the Borg.

My self-imposed paternity slowdown comes to an end today with our nanny-housekeeper-assistant's first day. It gives me something I've always wanted: Incentive to have an actual work day that begins, is filled with productivity, and then ends, giving me lots of time to just look at my beautiful son. Tatiana is still feeding and recovering, but will do the same as soon as she can. Anyone who runs their own business will know what an improbable dream this is. But it also means I am excited to race forward into new terrain, because my understanding of the world and making families has changed, because I am excited to begin new stages of my life, because I want to make my son healthy and proud … and, you know, to afford the nanny.

So much to come, and some of it very soon.

#throwbackthursday: 7 years, 1 month, 23 days.

I love it when couples show off their secret superpowers on the dance floor.

I prefer my impossibilities to be just this side of infinitely improbable.

A quick moment away from celebrations under the bridge.

Important, emotional bit: I love creating the effect of an isolated dreamscape to show the "alone together" part of relationships before then also showing how they celebrate that relationship with others.

Nerdy bit: It should go without saying that the #brenizermethod combined with a 50mm f/0.95 is also … kind of nuts. Here we have the 23mm f/0.4-equivalent.

Nerdier bit: I'm going to just start using e, like 23mm f/0.4(e) as an abbreviation. I get this from the now fairly standard notation of the relationship between smaller-sensor cameras and 35mm. The math of the Me Method works out to exactly the reverse of that.

SUPER-Nerdy bit: I need to remind myself that the math only works out right when I'm using a planar projection. With a standard panorama you are basically making a map, projecting a globe onto a flat plain -- just one from inside the globe. A planar basically just mashes it flat onto the table, but there are other, sometimes better ways of getting all the information of a photo in, and then the equivalent focal and bokeh math goes all weird -- like with an anamorphic lens, but weirder.

Emily and her friends kept mentioning how special it was that Daniel could make her laugh a raucous full-body laugh. We had about 45 seconds for this portrait but I wouldn’t rest until I got it.
