Designing your life in Imagery. . .


Like the blurry depths to the sharpness of the buds in the image on this page, so goes the hunt for the perfect capture of a mother and her child. The capture that will fill the holes in my heart that the absence of such has left. Not having any photos of my mother and I as a baby, I often wonder where they went or if they ever existed. It's not something I feel alone in however, I know many people who have nothing for pictures as a child. I realized not too long ago, this is exactly why I am so moved when I have certain subjects in front of my lens. It is allowing me to create something I never had. It may not be OF me but I assure you, it's as much FOR me as it is for YOU. ~ thank you so much for inviting me into your world, for letting me tell your story. . . THIS is my WHY~ xoxo
