told + treasured

There's this picture that I love. It's in my grandparents' house, nestled inside a tiny gold frame, and it is of my grandfather when he was a teenager. I love that photo. I love all the photos in their house, the tiny, framed, black and white snapshots scattered around the rooms. They tell a story. And somehow these printed, black and white pictures mean more to me than many other photographs.

Most of you know that photography is a passion of mine and that I am pursuing it as a career. I don't usually post photos from my recent photoshoots, but today I will... and all of them, in black and white. (there is seriously something about a black and white photograph, no?) I love this art with my whole heart. And I have so, so many dreams for where I will go and what I will do with it. Part of my "mission" in photography is to tell a story, to create art and memories that will be treasured just as much as I treasure and adore those photographs at my grandparents' home. I aspire to tell the beautiful, incredibly unique story of whoever I'm photographing, whether they are a couple, a family, a group of friends, or hey, maybe even a drummer. Everyone has a story, and I think that each and every one deserves to be told-- and treasured.












Hope you enjoyed a little look at what I love to do, and what I'm passionate about. Do you have a favorite?

Happy Wednesday.

  2. black and white is my favorite. Raw emotion screams out your name, pulling you in deeper and deeper. No bring colors as a distraction. Nothing but the faces. Nothing but the landscape. Nothing but the story. it's so beautiful.
