How often do we overlook what is directly in front of us?
I aim to capture the God-touched splendor of intimate moments, spaces, and faces too often overlooked simply because they make-up our “every day.” Filled with profound beauty, connection and purpose, it is the regularities of our own lives that provide true meaning. Playing with natural light, texture, and by employing the practice of stillness, I want to push viewers to seek out the extraordinary in the common – being still - and to appreciate the value in each moment we are gifted to experience.
