Photographs Teach People to See

Our life on this earth is like mist in the air. Moments are spent that are impossible to recreate. When there are no words to express your emotions it is the photograph that focus the feelings. I am blessed to savor life intensely by being a photographer that can document your love.

“All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.” ~ Susan Sontag
