Hi, let me tell you a story.

That statement could be viewed from a verbal, written, or photographic standpoint. Anyone that knows me, knows that I love to talk. Verbal communication allows you to gain and share through words and expressions and hear the story exactly as it is intended to be told. The written word can tell the same story and expressively portray the story with descriptive words, or leave just enough to let your imagination create images of your own to fill your mind. Photographic story telling, in a way, is much more complicated. You have one second. One second to capture the moment and fully express the story in such a way that it can express the emotions desired. Follow me as I lead you through a tale of many characters spanning generations, locations, and lives. Allow me to capture your moment and share it with the world to see the beauty that unfolds as it carries on around us.
