It's the little moments that count.
It started when I had my first child, a gorgeous girl. My family was 3,000 miles from me and wanted to see her, so I began photographing her everyday. I was able to put my images up on Flickr, but my father had terrible eyesight and was confined to a nursing home for the last few years of his life. My mother would print out photos for him, but I wanted him to be able to see every detail in the prints he was getting; I wanted him to feel like he was right there with us. It was the birth of my style.
There was a strong connection between the two of them, and each time we were able to visit, we saw new photos plastered on his walls. The nurses would welcome us as if they knew us for years. My father passed away when she was almost 2 1/2, exactly one month before my son was born.
I'm not your regular photographer. I like to get close, break the rules, and create intimate portraits. . I believe that photographs can create connections, and help preserve memories for more than a single lifetime.
