Monday Morning Motivation - "What moves you?" Last week I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful woman who shared her passion for collecting with me. I watched her eyes light up with joy as she described the adventures that led her to the Disney dolls and Mikey Mouse memorabilia.
It made me realize how I've allowed the busyness of the world to whisk me away from the simple pleasures of life.
In an attempt to help me decide what I might collect, she asked me one simple question, "What moves you?"
It was a question so simple yet so profound that it helped me to uncover how past experiences can leave you with scar tissue so thick that it leaves you numb. It made me think about how present responsibilities and worries of the future can surround you with an impenetrable fog and leave you stuck in haze. All of this leaving you with an inability to feel and truly experience the beauty that is life.

Preserving moments in time and capturing the essence of everyday life are two ways in which I approach photography. I am a storyteller. To me, the thrill is anticipating the second before the moment happens. I am constantly seeking opportunities to showcase the beauty and energy of my extensive body of concert photography. It is my belief that photography should be shared. My photos have been exhibited for nearly a decade in the Atlanta area and are engulfed with the raw, unsuppressed energy delivered by live performance and self-expression. My photography draws forth an emotional connection and viewers often feel as if they are reliving those moments with me and my subjects; to feel them just as we felt them; to relive them as i ...READ MORE
