I am privileged to be able to photograph people and experience what they bring to the session or performance.
I approach each session with respect for what the individual or group is allowing me to witness and capture, acknowledging that, at times, it is deeply personal.
I look for the beauty in every encounter because people are beautiful and beauty is comprehensive- interesting, fiery, passionate, energetic, calm, sincere, tired, silly, contemplative, confident, resolved, in love….and on and on.
In my photos, I like to express the energy felt in the room when I photograph the subject or subjects.
The energy felt between people -a connection -or the energy released from someone when they are performing.
Whether its pure joy, in- your- face confidence, earth shaking strength, hard- to- contain excitement or a big breath of relief; I love to capture those moments and feel honored to experience them with the performer.
I believe the energy you surround yourself with and give to others directly influences the happenings in your life as well as others you interact with.
Through my photography, I want to pass on the energy experienced at that moment with the subject, to others.
