I’m on earth to remind people that they matter. I know that my life is a short ‘blip’ on the map of time, and I’m here to create something that will show the beauty of life… of my life, and of the lives that I get to capture.
Whether I’m photographing a bride on her wedding day or a single mother in India, my intention is to convey how beautiful and worthy each human is so that they can see it, and so that others can experience it.
The images I create are going to exist far longer than I will be alive, and I want to be known and remembered as someone who points others to equality, empowerment and freedom.
