When I look at these photographs, I feel so much love in my heart.
I love what I do, folks. I just do. From beginning to end, I love getting to know every single person I photograph. I love hearing your stories, your life goals, your fears.. And then I remember..
Being photographed is two things: Terrifying & Transformative.
It's terrifying because, well, it IS. You're letting go of control, you don't know how to pose, you feel awkward/uncomfortable..
It's transformative because you could have a life-changing experience for the good or bad. I'm sure we've all seen a photo of ourselves at one point or another where we shocked at how the photo was taken mid-blink, or you were laughing so hard they caught a little double-chin. Those have changed your perception of how you look for the worse.
However, being photographed and then LOVING the images that came out is a whole other transformative experience (hopefully one I can create for you). That. That is the best type of transformation.
So to those I've photographed, thank you. I love you. For those I haven't photographed yet, I can't wait to get to know you better.
