My subject is life.

I started taking photos and videos from the influence of my Grade 10 Yearbook teacher Mrs. K. It was through Yearbook, that I learned the gift of documenting life for the enjoyment of looking back on moments past, later in life.

Once I bought my own camera, I started to document my friends. Creating videos with whatever I captured throughout the year to sum up all the fun we got up to — my own personal yearbook. Most importantly, I wanted to create a video that my friends could watch and feel gratitude for the friendships we shared. Life moves so fast.

In the portraits I have today, I have both professional and personal photos but to me the goal is the same, to have a photo that captures the essence of the person in the photo. In one, my friend is painting a mural, the artist in him that makes him who he is. Another, a girl on her 18th birthday in her favorite red dress – a photo she will look back on in later years. These are all just photos but the stories behind them are plentiful. That’s another reason I love to shoot, to create a photo, that sparks a story.

I’d like my art to feel familiar. Give inspiration to others to document their own lives. I want my art to inspire others to be present - appreciate the moment you have in front of you and the people in it.

I hope you look at your life and see more gratitude for the moments you get to be a part of.
