The real grit of life, of being a human, is so much more than a pretty smile on a sunny day. So when it comes to portraits, I want to capture a less-often seen emotion of some kind. Something that portrays a raw response to an emotional event. I aim to capture a less “pretty” side of humanity; an emotion that is often overlooked by photographers, yet is just as strong at connecting us as it is at tearing us apart. I want to capture your anger, your vulnerability, your sadness, your strength, and with every ounce of your intensity.
