Photography has never been a hobby or a job for me. It's been a way for me to freeze time. I have such great respect for the generations of family that have come before mine and there is nothing more precious than getting a peek into a parent’s life before us and even seeing what our grandparents did in their youth. Therefore, when I create an image I imagine future generations sitting around a table with a cup of coffee, flipping through photographs and reminiscing about where they were that day and how they felt in that moment. I’m not capturing an image; I'm creating a memory.
