The first time I remember using a camera was when I was 8 years old. I had received a cheap 35mm film camera for a family vacation and I remember documenting our trip with that little point and shoot camera. The excitement I felt when I picked up my developed prints is still vivid and I cherish that photo book filled with 5x7 prints of my family.
I strive to capture those images that will be cherished for a lifetime. I embrace the mood, weather, light, environment, emotion, and elements around me. Composing images through a viewfinder has taught me to see the beauty in the world that so many take for granted.
