It doesn’t make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don’t really see ourselves. We don’t watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled up silent with our chests rising & falling with our own rhythm. We don’t see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. You don’t see yourself looking at someone with love and care in your heart. There’s no mirror in your way when your laughing and smiling and pure happiness is leaking out of you. You would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw yourself in the moments where you are truly your authentic self.

 I want you to see how incredibly beautiful you are. Portraits aren't just about a nice photo to hang on the wall or put in the yearbook - they are about  giving you a piece of yourself at this particular moment in time. This is always my goal for every portrait session.

We were just kids who believed in
More than just dreams in
More than just justified
Ends to a means

With the sky wide-open
Like a child, eyes-open
like a child, unbroken
by the wheels gone by

We know who we are
