"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." Penned by Albert Einstein. Over the years this quote has stuck with me. What a beautiful reminder of the gift that we have everyday. The gift that is our life and our story.
My obsession with photography and documenting life came at an early age. A trajectory that brought me to where I am today. Married twice, raised two beautiful children, being blessed with two extraordinary grandchildren and like most parents working day to day to live life. Photography is about documenting life and reminding people to tell their story.
The everyday can be daunting and mundane, but we must remember the quote above. Everything is a miracle. The breaths we take, the glorious moments we have while raising our children, the life that we are creating for ourselves every single day. It is all a gift and an amazing one at that. It's the legacy that you will leave behind for generations after you to tell.
My hope is that your visit here will inspire you to tell your story. Live it and tell it. Out loud. And remember the tiny miracles as well as the big ones. The building of partnerships, the wedding vows, the tiny heartbeat of a newborn, seeing your wife/husband hold your son or daughter for the first time, the sound of bare feet on the kitchen floor, giggles coming from their bedroom late at night, tiny hands and big dreams, food stained faces and summer nights, Christmas mornings, first days of school, triumphs and struggles, watching your little ones become amazing people who will create their own legacy one day.
I hope that my photography can be a part of the telling of your story. After all, the certainty is, it's going to be an amazing one.
