I see so much beauty in the world, and I want to capture it for everyone to enjoy. For example, I'll see a mother tucking her child's hair behind his ear. The simple gesture is so intimate and tender, and it exemplifies so much about their relationship to me. I feel compelled to photograph moments like that, so the mother and her son can see and enjoy this moment that might otherwise be lost to memory.
