"With my camera, I freeze a split second in time to record the smile, movement, or expression that otherwise goes by unnoticed in the blink of an eye. Pictures tell the story of an event and preserve some of the emotions we felt as we recall the experience or person. Our memories fade with time, and a picture is a tangible reminder we can hold in our hands to keep the memory alive in our hearts."
