"You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved." ~Ansel Adams
Life is beautiful. All of it. Smiles, tears, laughter, love, every moment is a moment to be fully alive, and every moment is a moment to cherish. And those moments are fleeting. Newborn babies become sticky, sweet toddlers. Carefree children grow into college graduates. Grandparents become great-grandparents. We celebrate new beginnings, and we experience bittersweet goodbyes. And all of it is life. As a photographer, I have learned that I don't simply create a beautiful portrait or photograph you in your best light. Rather I have the honor of documenting moments, and more than that, all of the feelings, memories, and love that are wrapped up in those moments, your beautiful life. Thank you for the honor. I don't take it lightly.
I invite you to look around. Enjoy the special moments documented and here. And then look around again, and enjoy the special moments of your beautiful life!
