This is what really gets to me you guys. A pure and simple portrait. It speaks a lot of words. I am feeling so energized by this portrait this week. This young woman walked into my studio on a Monday, and she has no idea what she has given me for the rest of the week. She came in for a very simple headshot for her job, sent in by her boss. She said "I'm the no makeup kind of girl."
I asked her "Can I take a portrait of you for me?" She responded "Sure!" Once quick snap, and I'm so inspired.
A friend of mine asked me recently at an art show if I've ever wanted to photograph something different. Upon thinking about it, there were a small handful of special projects I had wanted to photograph - but they were still all portraits. I truly love portraiture. To capture the story on someones face is a gift to me. Your faces all all the beautiful landscape I need. I am grateful to every person who sits in front of my lens. I know it can be an uncomfortable and vulnerable moment for some, and I do not take that lightly.
Thank you all for allowing me to capture your beauty, your story, your legacy.
