All my life, I have been telling stories. Whether I was talking, reading, or writing, I wanted the details of the stories to be so vivid that they came to life for the people who experienced them. Now as a documentary photographer, I love to tell the stories of families’ real life through beautiful imagery. I think Ansel Adams said it best: “You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” Here’s to the beautiful stories God is creating through us all everyday.
