Just as many before me, I've had a camera in my hands since I was young, trying my best to keep up with the grown-ups. Every Columbus Day weekend, my family would drive up to Vermont from our home in Maine, getting together with my dad's college friends and their families. There were never fewer than five cameras clicking away capturing the craziness. The Sunday night treat was multiple slide shows of the previous year's festivities, complete with a sound track. That slideshow was hands down my favorite part of the weekend.
I love beautiful images. But more importantly I love sharing and documenting the story of life, how it is right this second. In the photography world, "snapshot" has become a bit taboo - not pretty enough, not stylized enough, not perfect enough. But that's life! It isn't perfect!
I think the best kind of photograph is the one that tells your story of today, your life now. It doesn't replace the memories but enhances them. It reminds you of the little things that were a part of this moment in time, the things that eventually fade into the background. Today is important and I want to be there to help you remember it.
