As a father of 3 I know how crazy parenthood is. I also know how fast time goes by and how important it is to record those fleeting moments that make up this wild thing we call 'life'. That is why I feel, more strongly then ever, that it is very crucial to be as unobtrusive as I can be when making photographs of families so that I do not interrupt those moments that make this whole thing worthwhile and precious. Documenting those moments is not just for you, the parent, but more so for your children - for them to have an honest record of how your life and family really were... in all it's chaotic glory!
My photographic journey began when my first child entered the world in 2017. I consider bringing home a child to be probably one of the most natural opportunities for an adult to pick up a “real” camera for the first time, especially for those who weren’t raised with any influences in photography growing up from family or other outside sources, as was the case for me. During my wife’s pregnancy, I remember thinking to myself, “I’m literally dedicating every free minute I’ll ever have to raising future children, so why not use all that time already invested in them to document their development and upbringing? After all, I’ll be there the whole time anyhow, and this way future children can see how they were raised through the eyes of their parent.” Even before my daughter’s birth, I knew I wanted to approach documenting her life in a unique way, one which wholly resonated with who I am as a parent and observer of scenes. I specifically envisioned capturing childhood and her development through what I later learned was from a reportage, photojournalism and documentary perspective (through more of a ‘fine art’ lens) in which I capture the ‘real’ - the honest moments, the quiet moments, the mundane moments, happy moments and, yes, even the challenging moments. All with an artistic aesthetic. It is important to me to catalog those everyday experiences and a child’s growing curiosity with the world. That’s what got my gears going and turned me on, and that’s what I’ve pursued ever since. I don’t think I’ll ever put a camera down for as long as I’m able to create.
