Man, this is honestly a really hard question when you start a business. What is your why and why is it your why?
So quite frankly, without further ado, here it is...

"To create a visual story for people to relive and pass down by documenting meaningful moments, where time meets timeless."

A visual story gives shape, texture, and meaning to all the various moments in our life. I also think a picture reminds you more of the memories you have and will create with the people rather than just that particular moment, even though that’s apart of it. Those memories that we have then sort of become narratives that shape our lives, things we pass onto our kids or close friends. All these beautiful moments, captured within a frame…but yet has a life of its own as you interact with it. And to me that is what beauty is: it’s where time meets timeless.

That phrase “time meets timeless” is something I picked up from a poet I read frequently. When I was considering my why when I first started documenting couples and families, that phrase really resonated with me because it’s something that I have experienced in my own life so many times. I cherish my time with my friends, family and now by soon to be husband. We have created so many beautiful moments, moments that have become timeless. It’s easy to rush through our life, thinking of time as something we dominate or control. But when we simply receive time as it is, ordinary moments in our days become timeless.
This sort of framework of thinking is what I try to bring into my work as a creative/artist, when documenting families and couples. There are all these moments, whether at a wedding or in family session, that are asking to be captured and remembered. What I hope I can do is capture and give those moments to you as a gift to relive and pass down.
This is what I mean by a visual story that shapes us.
“Be original, show off your style, and tell your story.”
