Humans are my favorite subject.

Even when I see a beautiful landcape scene, my eye always naturally wants to find a human to be in the photograph. I love the subtleties of expressions and postures and the way they transcend across barriers of language, race, and geography. I especially love to take spontaneous portraits of my friends and family.

I also love making people stand by windows.

"Oh, the places you'll go!"

I remember receiving that book when I graduated high school, and thinking it was a cute tradition for people to buy that book for young adults. It wasn't until recently that I actually read it for the first time, and it actually made me emotional as I realized how much of it I've lived out already. I'm grateful for the places I've been and for what I've learned about myself along the way.

These are people I understand.

I once had aspirations of becoming a traveling singer/songwriter...and while I am certain that that's not my calling now, I still really really love being around a passionate live music environment. I love the rawness of someone expressing themselves for a group of people who came to simply witness and perhaps engage in that expression.

This is one of my favorite sets of photos I've ever taken.

These are from a personal project I was doing, shot across several months at a church where I had the privilege of serving these people who became my friends and family for a season of life. All natural light and natural smiles.
