I love finding that "forever" moment when I'm taking images of someone - the one that they'll never get tired of looking at and will be glad they have as the years move on.
There's this saying: "We don't see people as they are, we see them as we are." That motivates me to find the compassion, the sensual, the contemplative and the poetic places in the people I'm shooting. I want us all to be elevated and see ourselves with love. I think images can do that. When we see ourselves as those that love us do, a deeper self-love is possible. And that makes life better.
Maybe it's because in my photos of others I want to see the possibility in myself.
