There is a story behind every photograph. A beautiful portrait tells a compelling story. A self-portrait gives insights into the inner you; an empowering introspection that can change your perspective of yourself. Someone who’s never seen themselves as beautiful is able to see themselves through a different perspective.
Portraits convey powerful emotions. As a photographer, you learn that a portrait is a form of time travel. What I capture in the blink of an eye can bring a person joy for the rest of their life. Nostalgia is one of the most powerful emotions.
The power of the photographer’s eye is demonstrated when someone who doesn’t see themself as beautiful can see themself in a new light. I’ve experienced when someone who wasn’t self confident at all book a glamour session, then cried tears of joy at the finished photograph. They see themselves as beautiful and radiant, like a model.
We live in an age where convenience is too often prioritized over art. A cellphone ‘selfie’ captures a moment, but an experienced portrait photographer tells your story and connects us with each other. My photographer’s eye sees the beauty that an untrained eye can easily overlook; and the artistry I share through my photography is a powerful tool to tell your story.
Behind every photo there is a story. Let me tell your story.
