Every time I needed to feel alive, I picked up the camera. I left a lucrative corporate career and took a chance in what brings me alive. I found aliveness in photography, film making and chaplaincy. As a chaplain I learned that nothing lasts forever. Careers, relationships, possessions all fall away. Witnessing the impermanence of life, appreciating every day the little things became a practice. So, I pay attention to what unfolds in front me. That's why I shoot documentary style. I show up with no agenda or expectations. I let the story unfold in front me and I witness the beauty and the humanness of it all. And I capture it as I see it, as I am.
My work as a chaplain taught me that at the end of the day the only question that matters is, "Did I love well and was I loved?" That is the legacy that one leaves behind when everything else falls away. So, I capture just that: The Love That You Are. It is an honor and humbling. That's what I love!
“You captured what our family is all about. I love this type of photography. I want to remember how it was when my kids were little. Homeschool while cooking, no lounging at the table...everyday life.”
