welcome aliya.

it is an absolute honour to share these photographs. i spent an afternoon in alyias nursery with her family... it was a tender and special time for, well, all of us i think. i really love her parents. we have known each other since their wedding, which i was part of as well. i love seeing them as parents. so calm. so honest. it was just days after they brought their baby girl home and already they seemed so able. i was in awe of that and inspired by that as well. congratulations & thank you for trusting me. xos

pierre. musician.

working on a series of images for this young artist. pierre is a very talented musician. i think of him like a poet... he would say he is a rapper i am sure, and he is. but the bottom line is he very gifted and has at a young age found his passion in life. i find youth so fascinating. being around it i am reminded of my own youth... what it was like finding things for the first time. discovering a passion, delving into something for the first of what may become a million times. passion is really the best fuel. it allows you to do something over and over and over each time finding something new or tapping into something deeper. passion is really a discipline. i suppose i am saying so because it amazes me what focus and determination someone can posses when they love something. whatever it is... xos
