I have been exploring memories from my past about those that I care about most with Hybrid images in addition to creating new memories and experiences on adventures with @jbellyburn. This past week we explored the memory of someone that I loved and cared about very deeply from my past that passed away. I have held in emotions for over 20 years now from the experience. The session that Janelle and I did was so powerful to me that I broke down in tears and totally lost it. I could not keep my eyes open as the tears streamed down my cheeks, but I continued to photograph blindly until I opened my eyes and hugged Janelle. In that moment she said to me that its ok, vulnerability is not weakness, it is strength. This is something that is priceless to me, and that I will remember always. I am so beyond blessed to have her in my life and she is family to me! She is one of the most strong, real, caring, and compassionate individuals that I have ever met hands down. Janelle, thank you as always from the bottom of my heart! This set of images is simply unlike anything that I have ever created in my entire life, and I have always imagined that I have guardian angels watching over me!
I am a professional photographer/artist/content creator based in NYC. I also teach photography, and I am working on a brand new project exploring past and present memory in mixed media called Hybrid.
