I am just starting this blog for the first time. I want to use this as a place to post pictures (both new and old) and to put some explanation behind the photographs you see on here as well as on my site. So I thought I would start with this photograph. I think this is my current favorite of what I have. This picture is from a series of photographs that make up my largest project I have done thus far. It was done when I was a senior in college and it was a requirement in order to graduate. I spent over a year on this one project from conception to the opening of the show. I named this project "Portraits of Life" because I wanted to capture the beauty and essence of life, specifically in children, that is all too often lost and never given a chance through abortions. And thus my project and therefore these beautiful images were quickly surrounded with controversy and hate. My project is no longer on display as the entire piece it was meant to be, but the remnants of it remain here and there throughout my website and on my business cards. The center piece of the project was a 4 ft x 4 ft QR code that is made up of over 1,000 images just like the one I posted here. It is currently hanging about my couch where I see it every day and am reminded of the beauty and value of life. I hope that some of the images I post on here will also help you remember this precious gift from God that is our lives.
