I want you to be everything that's you, deep at the center of your being.

I can't help but take my set of photographer eyes with me everywhere I go. When I look through the viewfinder of my camera and I visually process theelements and individual details of a scene into a balanced and pleasing arrangement, I'm reminded of how in our own lives we strive to be centered. I grew up in a family where almost every moment of my life was documented. I have countless videos, letters, books, and especially photographs that depict the great story of my journey navigating the hills and valleys of life. I knew I wanted to photograph other lives when sharing my past with friends. Over and over again I would hear "I wish I had photos from when I was a kid". Life passes us in the blink of an eye, and I have eyes that want to help you hold onto that moment just a little bit longer.
