Why do I love photography? I could probably write a book about that, but the short answer is this: I love photography because I love life and I love people. Don't get me wrong - I geek out over gorgeous light and beautiful decorations and scenery as much as the next person, but it's the people and the small moments that are the heart of why I love this. Although I am friendly and outgoing, I often find it difficult to be open about my own emotions. I have a hard time expressing to people how I truly feel about them and life in words. Photography lets me tell them. I can tell them that I see their joy as they twirl around holding their baby at the beach, that I see how my parents still look at each other after 30 years of marriage, or the meaning in the simple, tender gesture of putting their hand on a loved one's arm, or how their nose crinkles a little when they laugh, or their absolute elation after being announced married. I see all these things and I think they are so, so beautiful.
