beauty of life around us

If you know me you know I have an addiction to capturing every moment on camera.
Ever since my first film camera in elementary school, I have been snapping every momentous moment and all the moments in between. I never want to forget something that brought me so much joy; so I photograph the people, the setting, and the feelings felt in that time.

“If you want to learn what someone fears losing, watch what they photograph”
This quote hits me so strongly.
I never want to lose the memory of the moment.
The people that were there to induce laughter so vigorous it made your abs workout. 
The adventures and experiences you had together so long ago and the emotions behind them all.
The power of how a picture can transport you to the nostalgic moment and how you felt in that exact time.
I don’t want to lose that. So I photograph.
And I try to capture the moment how I see it. The beautiful masterpiece of emotions, beauty, and life in front of me that I try to embrace all into a single photo.
The raw moments of you just truly being you. not noticing the outside world is looking at you. Those moments I try to capture of you in your purest self.

My friends are my muses. They bring me inspiration from being themselves in all their beauty and all that they are.
Even if you don’t capture a photograph electronically or on film, capture the moment in your head. Look around and fully inhale all that this present moment has to offer you and feel it.
See the world around you as a constant piece of moving art. 

It's exciting, it's beautiful and its meant to make you feel something.
