Meet Carly - I photographed her on Saturday. If I am blessed to live to even 100, I will always be honored and humbled how people connect with me during a photo shoot and put their full trust in me. People let down their defenses and say, "This is me"....we become one and then the transparency, vulnerability and deep honesty flows to the surface for all to see. This is fully evident whenever I do close-up portrait, such as Carly's. You see, I never use a zoom lens and shoot close-up shots from afar. On the contrary, I am within inches of the subject's face. People let me into their 'private, sacred space', which is typically reserved only for a small few people in their lives. So, take a look at Carly...she is showing you her essence. Wow, I love what I do!
