Life is complex. Life is chaos. This is a truth that I live daily. In contrast, I’ve found that photographs offer a simplicity that is otherwise hard to grasp. They display some of life’s best and most integral experiences on what seems to be a molecular level — milliseconds at a time. It’s that pause that draws me into each frame. So many smiles, laughs, tears, looks of love, perfect moments in nature, so much beauty, detail, grandeur — all at my fingertips.

For all those viewing, welcome to my simplicity-within-chaos, my place of calm, if you will. I invite you to join in on my quest to find the simple, invaluable pauses that make our lives special.
