“You capture beauty for people and make it permanent, and that’s not a gift many have.”—my dear friend Meredith. Whatever you need permanent memories of, whatever fleeting beauty—the look in his eyes as he puts the ring on your finger to say “We are one now, forever.”; and the beaming faces of your family and friends, the tears caught in the corners of Mom’s eyes—I will capture the uniqueness of it and the feelings surrounding: and carve them in photographic stone.

Photography is protection from time, immortalizes splendid moments. This photo will look the same in 5000 years: those uneaten strawberries will still be fresh, and the way the sunlight dapples through the trees and hits them will never change.
