Well, aren’t most of us just terrible when it comes to writing descriptions of ourselves. I know that it is something I have always struggled with. The same way I stand by a wall at a party for a long time to observe, before I jump in and start talking to strangers. I have to get a feel for my audience, to understand if they are in certain moods or receptive to what I want to say.
I could tell you my history, my education, where my work has been published. But is any of that why people ultimately book a photographer. I guess for some it is. But, if I were searching for a photographer I would want to know what drives them, what kind of photography makes them excited, why working with clients is a calling. So, here are some things that I love.
The light in the desert right before a winter storm.
Early mornings surrounded by big trees watching the light slowly spill down onto the forest floor.
Watching parents and their children laugh and connect and be total goofballs.
Witnessing two people who are so in love that everything else in the world fades away, if even for a few moments.
Capturing a look that not only conveys emotion, but that also shows the essence of that person.
Documenting life. love. strife. joy. glee. sorrow. aging. growth. tenderness. connections. nature. you.
The last few years have been mostly filled with my life with my family. We have changed and moved a lot since 2015 but things are about to settle down again for a while. Navy life is coming to an end, and we will be moving back to the PNW finally in the summer of 2019. I am looking forward to finding lifelong clients, friends and adventure buddies in this new chapter of my life.
