This is a cherished portrait of my family:
Just like mine, your family life is uniquely beautiful.
It might also be messy and logistically stressful with all kinds of crazy. But it’s yours. You’ve probably wished a dozen times you could bottle up and savor those hugs, tiny hands, and sweet laughter. You can.
I love capturing pure, unfiltered joy. I love emotion. I thrive seeing relationships and their special intricacies that make the people in them tick. I love belly-flopping, hair-raising adoration. A sudden intake of breath.
I love light reflected in eyes, especially children’s eyes. I love capturing the split second before a person suppresses an unexpected feeling that they feel too embarrassed to share.
I love creating a safe environment where people can truly be the best version of themselves. I love to encourage relationships and help people create new memories together, which they will always cherish.
I want to see the connection between people. Images that say more than “this is what they are doing”…a moment in which we can all relate to on some higher level.
My camera unlocked a language within me that I had always understood but never knew how to speak. I can finally express all the little things I noticed around me. Can’t see what I see? Here, let me show you in this photo.
I get all emotional thinking about what made me fall in love with photography: the ability to record these indelible moments to remind you that you actually lived. You loved. You were loved.
