Photography forces me to look at things from every angle, to inspect and to figure out. Not only my subject, but myself. I watch others interact, and I’m moved to capture it as a photo, and to capture that feeling in my own life. It’s the most bizarre thing, that just by taking a photo, you can identify a quality in someone else that you never even knew you wanted. That beauty can be found in even the smallest of hand movement, the quickness of a smile, or the relaxation of a touch.
The subjects of this photo session are photographers themselves. I met Noemi years ago over mutual Westie love, and taking photos of her beautiful family now is an honor; and so fun! I even recruited my incredibly talented and amazing friend Drew (www.drewmerritt.com) to hand paint a background on the free wall in Amarillo. This session was such a physical reminder of how much I’ve gained in the past year… friendships, experiences, love. I’m grateful for all of it.
