"[Documentary photography] is unwittingly literary, because it is nothing other than an observation of contemporary life apprehended at the right moment by an artist capable of seizing it."

Creating home videos of everyday life always makes me happy. Bringing memories to life through mini films complements photos in the perfect way. Going back and hearing the kids voices or seeing how they move and dance is priceless. Mini videos / moving portrait and interviews, at milestones like birthdays are a great way to document the big and little moments in your everyday life. These make great Mother's day and Father's day gift as well or an unconventional Christmas card. 



By being my own family photojournalist I can't stress enough the importance of having candid and real moments captured of your family. No posing, no staging, just you and your family being yourself. Let me be a fly on the wall and document life as it is: the beautiful, the ugly and especially the in-betweens. You can stay home, go to the park or even the restaurant and I'll just come hang out. That easy I promise.

Personal projects is what helps me grow and allows me to experiment. In the end it makes my overall work stronger. I shoot mostly my family through a documentary approach. You can say I am my family's photojournalist. I also like to play around and experiment, as well as collaborate with my kids when they agree to it. You will get a great sense of what my style and apraoch is by looking through my portfolio.
