There is a certain honesty to portraits. Whether it is a single photo or a series, there is always a story hidden in the visual narrative. I see value in getting to know the individuals I photograph, capturing intriguing, spontaneous moments that can truly reveal something unique about each person. As a photographer, I want to give the viewer an opportunity to connect to a story, revealing a common experience. In todays busy world, I hope to make my viewers stop and take a moment to appreciate the expression and story behind each face.
