Truly touched.

Two recent shoots for the University of Minnesota touched me.  Actually they made me tear up!  You hear the stories that these young people have endured with the medical battles they have fought, and you are moved to tears.  You realize as a photographer that you are being included into their lives to record a moment (whether healthy or not) of their history.  To me that is a gift!  One that I accept with great honor and a humble heart.  I love being able to use my camera to Tell a Story!

  1. That is most certainly true sir. A persons life is a treasure to be allowed to be a part of, even for a brief moment in time.
