i thought about squeezing my little sister abbys cheeks.
i felt how much i missed her and that the miles between chicago + baltimore, how our carreers and lives have since separated us.
i could see how these two had that connection we had – it made me long for the good old days. the easy days. as i watched maddie + abby connect and interact…as i listened to them talk to me about birthday parties, best friends, summer, and the things they loved most…i related and wanted to share that with them.
i wanted to share that moment with my little sister again, i wanted to squeeze her cheeks and let her know how much i loved her that ill always be her big sister even if i hadn’t acted like it recently.
thats what photography does…it blends our stories, it shares our love, it creates something that speaks to the nostalgia of life, for me photography is a way of sharing a piece of who people are…a piece of who i was…of who i am… it creates something from the human connection.
art as life…and life as art…the photographs allow me to create – to make sense – to embrace and to grow.
