With every photo I take, my love for capturing moments grows.
I started taking film photos when I was 13. Shortly after, I discovered digital photography. From Diana Mini's to Minoltas to Nikons, I've made a conscious effort to take photos of everyone I care about. It doesn't matter what kind of camera I'm using, as long as I can preserve the memory that's all that's important to me. Below, I've included a slideshow of the portraits I am proudest of. Some were taken with my Nikon D3200, the rest with my Minolta X-700.
I find myself lost in visions of concerts featuring Rae Sremmurd, East Coast visits in the freezing cold, hula hooping on Coronado beach, post high school graduation adventures to Sunset Cliffs, dorm room photo sessions, trips downtown, and quiet evenings at Starbucks.
My photos speak volumes to me about intimacy, adolescence, curiosity, and adoration. Every single person you see above has witnessed a crucial moment in my lifetime, simply by being there.
I hope you enjoyed my photos, even if you don't understand the context. Sometimes that allows for greater appreciation.
Thank you all. Peace and love.
