Artist's statement

Beauty comes in many different forms and is just as subjective as photography. I love my little sister's face because it is dusted with freckles. I really wanted to capture her when she forgets that I have a camera in front of her face. I wanted that moment just after a smile, when the expression reveals the authentic self. I think the magic of portraits is being able to take a photograph as if the photographer is completely absent.
