A photograph of someone smiling should be because they are truly joyful in that moment.

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" A quote made famous long before photography was invented but I find it very applicable to what I do. I look for the beauty in all things. When you hire me to photograph for you I get to share how I see with you. When you trust me with your pictures we can both see the beauty together.
