"I view a portrait as a collaboration. Similar to a theatrical production, a photograph is composed of dynamic energy built from a connection between photographer and subject. You are the performer, while I adopt the roles of director and designer through the back of a lens. With trust and teamwork, a photograph encapsulates that dynamic magic that can only be created together. I always strive to listen to you, to make you feel comfortable and this allows us to uncover the beauty that makes up your essence and makes you unique. It’s the connections that drive me to create. I am inspired to share that connection with my audience. My desire is to manifest that energy within my photography so that my audience feels as if they too are a part of the experience. I want them to be drawn in, to feel a personal connection to you, the environment, and to our shared experience."
