The naturally curious. The social butterflies in a community.
The individuals who lead with their gut intuition rather than conventional thought.
You might disagree with their ideas, recommendations or criticize their unconventional methods. The one thing you cannot do is ignore them.
These individuals have strong personal core values with an inherent ability to form relationships with a broad spectrum of people.
Because the people who believe they can inspire others to create, visualize and document the reality of real stories...
Are the people who are patient enough to make it happen.
For me, it has always come back to storytelling.
Classic, iconic storytelling.
I know we use that word a lot but I always trace it back to my mother— how I come from a strong lineage of storytellers because of her.
Her stories came in the form of words. Mine come in the form of pictures.
So that’s just what I do naturally— I dig my heels in long enough to uncover the real story, the real web of details beneath the surface.
The things that make life tough but bright, singular yet striking.
I believe in photographing all types of families & love stories-- I treasure each kind. I always circle back to what I believe is my calling: promoting of positive self esteem, empathy, and the good of humanity through images that inspire.
I am a people watcher by nature and that's just because I cannot get enough of giving others something they cannot always give themselves-- a mirror into how beautiful an individual life is, even when it all just feels like chaos and craziness on the outside.
At the end of each day it's about love. How big our love is. How brightly it manifests.
The way we love one another— inwardly & outwardly, truly & fiercely— and how each love shifts the world, little by little.
