In the months following the birth of my first child, I came across an article about photographing children that emphasized the difference between having them pose for portraits and capturing them in everyday life. It was a simple concept, but somewhat unique in the early 90’s (given that it was before the advent of digital photography and meant developing rolls of film of ordinary days). But it made sense to me as a way to chronicle life, and eventually led to a passion for documentary photography. I love to take photos of live music, my hometown, and of course, my family. My first child is now 26, and is still a frequent subject of my photography.
