My love for photography is more like breath to me than a hobby. Let me lay it out for you: I get chills when I see dust catch in the light, my heart swells when I see wildflowers bloom through cracks in the street, I get giddy when I see the way people in love look at each other, I get emotional when I see smoke painting the air above a freshly blown-out candle. Simply put, I am completely enthralled by the whimsy that is this world. I have become enamored with the way that photography traps these moments into such a miraculous slow-motion space. I believe that fairy tales are not reserved for movies and that an artistic dreamy approach to creating is not a lie, it is a brilliantly magical way of telling the truth. So that is what I do, I tell the truth. I do not make magic, I simply witness it around me, feel it within me, and then hold my breath until I capture it and blend it all together. And that, my friends, is what sets my soul on fire.
