In a season of renewal, such as we are in now, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on my personal journey in photography. It’s hard for me to believe that more than 12 years years has passed since first walking down the path of life with a camera. I could not have imagined when I first started pursuing my interests with film that I would be here now. All I can think about is how grateful for I am for the wonderful people, experiences, and blessings that I have encountered along the way.
Being sentimental, I took to look back on my old black and while 35mm negatives to find an image that represents a glimpse into what would eventually unfold into I See Beauty. I found this sweet image of Talya, the 4 year old daughter of a co-worker, that I captured on an sunny spring morning in 2001. This image represents a glimpse into my future as a childhood photographer. Although my skill has vastly improved since then, my style and sense of connection felt in my images has stayed true.
Have a very blessed Easter everyone!
