Your friends and family expect you to bring your camera to birthday parties and holiday dinners. You pick up your camera before the broom when your kids spill flour all over the kitchen floor. You're the family photographer. Every other week, I share my conversations with photographers about their work and their families. How can we take better photos of our family life? Why are we taking all these photos in the first place?

Kate Miller Wilson - Making Photos about Autism and Connection
Today’s guest is Kate Miller Wilson. Kate is a mother, photographer and author. Our conversation begins with the photo that started a series of photos of her son who is on the autism spectrum. The series became the stunning book - Look Me in the Lens. The book is a combination of photos she made with her son and insights from her son about his experience of life with autism. Kate talks about how the book came to be and what it was like to create it. We also talk about Kate’s love of daily photos and the new love of her life - using a large format 4x5 film camera. Enjoy the show.
This is such a great podcast. The host has a special way of drawing out amazing conversations about life and photography.
I am not a photographer but I am so inspired to start and catalogue my family during Covid. I want to find the beauty of staying at home and staying safe with each other. What an inspiration you are, Jenny. I also agree with George that this is a time to be fearless! What is normal, anyway? Thanks so much for these podcasts!
Only through episode 1 and it shook me to my core
This podcast was just recommended to me by a fellow photographer when I mentioned to her I was obsessed with documentary family photography. I suddenly knew this is where I wanted to take my business and episode one spoke so clearly to me! I was brought to tears by Kate Densmore’s “why”. As a Mom I felt like she was articulating everything I couldn’t about why I want to document my life with my kids. Just a truly amazing podcast that I know will teach me so much. Thank you thank you!
