“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” – Aaron Siskind
Photographing a child is an untouchable high to me – their innocence, genuine happiness, and contagious laughter captivates me. Children find beauty in simplicity, and magic in ordinary moments – something that somehow changes as we grow into adults, and fades away. To me, the joy in a child’s eyes is a looking glass into their tiny minds, their love for their world, and their curiosity about life’s ordinary miracles. I find children’s thoughts to be extraordinary, and their raw emotion intrigues me. Children are free spirited, mysterious, optimistic, stubborn, fearless – they are magnetic. Capturing all these aspects of their being, and turning them into a photograph, is a skill and talent I continuously strive to perfect. It is a challenge, a puzzle, and an adventure. While I revel in their madness, and play their simple games, I connect with them – they show me their secret world – and it is a truly incredible and satisfying moment. I hope the images I create from these moments, pass the same enchantment on to you, and you too can share their perfect magic.
