Photography for me is a therapeutic tool that lets me look at the beauty that surrounds us everyday …in our busy lives we forget to look around and look at details such as the shape of a tree or the story that an abandoned road or house can form into. When I see these things a whole new world opens up to me and a photograph is formed. I hope to one day share these details and stories with people and hope that my photographs bring the emotion to the viewer that I felt while creating.
After a horrific accident where there was a death in our family photography was the one thing that made me see beauty again a world that seemed so dark. My daughters are my muses and I think when they see themselves as beautiful pieces of art it becomes theauputic for them as well.
