BEAUTY IS THE LIGHT IN THE HEART
-Kahlil Gibran-
This quote encompasses so much, it is a simple, yet beautiful summary of what I set out to capture every time I pick up my camera. The light behind the eyes of those whose portraits I compose, the light that is within their hearts.
The work that I have been creating these last few years has expanded and grown as I have grown, as a woman, a mama, a friend, a human being and photographer. At some point over the last year or so, the depth of my desire to create the kinds of portraits that I do deepened and a new strength and greater love and joy emerged.
It was an epiphany.
I was finally able to join the force of my feelings of gratitude for living into something transformative, creative and sought after.
It is true, the kinds of portraits that I produce are not for everyone. They are evocative, sometimes heavy but they always, always tell a beautiful truth. A truth and light that I seek to find a capture in every individual on the other side of my camera lens.
Every single one of us has this light, it is there, it is in your gaze right now. It just takes a certain kind of person to see that light, to hold it and capture it for all time.
Tomorrow begins a new chapter in what I am trying to do with this work. I cannot say very much about this now, but I am hopeful to be able to share some very brave and beautiful images with you soon. My hope for the future of this life long path of photography is to continue to capture individuals as brave and beautiful as the woman I will photograph tomorrow.
With Love and Gratitude.
