indigo stories

Photography has helped me explain how different things in the world move me. There is something about a photo that words are powerless to express. Photos can complicate and challenge our perceptions without losing our interest. Photos can push through ego and expose the heart of an issue. Photos can fascinate and disgust at the same time.  I believe there is meaning in every moment. Human connection is something I enjoy documenting the most. Touch, togetherness and candidness make up so much of the beauty in our lives. My intention behind each photo is to challenge us to remember who we are. Honest moments open up portals to depth and poetry. We have so many stories within us. My objective is to cultivate love for our stories--and to frame them authentically.
