Poetry of Life

How do you let it go?

By learning to love yourself.

Showing up and having an open heart.

I believe in the poetry of life.

I believe in the truth of the image in the heart of a poem.

I believe in the truth of the image in the heart of those moments when time stands still.

In those moments, I am a conduit: there to capture the unscripted.

When Emily Dickinson writes about hope as the thing with feathers,

Or ee cummings writes that not even the rain has such small hands,

Or Whitman sings the body electric.

When you experience something completely — the love in the room when you are married,

The feel of your baby in your arms,

I am there not to intrude, to choreograph you or pose you,

But to capture the moment when time stands still.

Those are the moments I believe are the most real.

Those are the moments I live for as a photographer: to become one with a subject enough for timelessness to reveal itself.

And when it does, I will be there to capture it on film: the moment when the space you are in — be it a field, a barn, a church, a beach — becomes a holy space.

There is a peace and energy about being in the moment that brings bliss to our experience.

That peace and energy is my compass:

When you open up and it flows through you…

and the act of cherishing brings you out of linear experience.

Love is where we come from and it’s all that counts.

Blissful, beautiful, timeless: you are enough.

It fills my heart to have a one-on-one or two-on-one experience.

A song wants to be sung in each of us.

A song wants to be sung each time we love one another.

I live to capture the image of that song.
