Since I started with the camera several years ago, my photography evolved from a form of self-expression: my portraits have become a therapeutic aid; they lead the subjects into seeing themselves differently and can help them find their true and most authentic selves.

[…] photography as an art… I don’t care whether or not you dignify it with a highbrow name. I think it is more important to find all life interesting than to seek out just the high levels.
– Dorothea Lange

I take professional empowering portraits at Sanctuary of Joy. I believe everybody is a good photographic subject: all people are beautiful, whether they know it or not. I am good at making you – and others – see your own beauty.

Below you can see some of the portraits I made over the years (from my Flickr account).
