The best thing about a portrait is that it never changes, even when the people in it do. I am so thankful to have photographs of my late father on my alter and to be able to look back on my adventures of far away places + friends who I might not see ever again.
Capturing my community in the elegant light they deserve with dignity and beauty is what I want to do as a photographer.
Portraiture has allowed me to hold space with time for reflection and for people to be their purest self.
I would not be me without my camera and the perspective it gives me grows me.
I hope to create photo magic with you soon.
