You look at the scar above your eye and see an imperfection. I see an incredible story. Evidence of a life lived outside the the lines. You are beautiful. You look at the wrinkles where your eyes meet your cheeks and wish for younger years. I see a life filled with a million laughs.
You are beautiful.
Whether I am traveling to Wales to photograph a writer for the cover of his book, or making portraits of a mother and daughter in my studio just down the road from my home in New Hampshire, it is always the magic of the human experience that I am celebrating.
Do you have a portrait of yourself that you love? I promise to give that to you.
