To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.
- Henri Cartier-Bresson

Photography took me by surprise.
The more time I spent with my two little boys, the more I wanted to cherish and document the moments we were together. Initially I picked up the camera to simply record those moments, but soon I was determined to transform my pictures into art, life is art.
I am a self-taught photographer. I have poured over countless books and have spent hours learning the art of photography, but recognize the most beautiful things in this world are the people who inhabit it. I love photographing people.
I enjoy documenting the small and simple things...a baby's feet...a simple gesture that might go unnoticed...a genuine smile.
Laughter is the key. I don't mind acting silly to help people feel comfortable.

The photograph itself doesn't interest me. I want only to capture a minute part of reality.

Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I'm going to take tomorrow.
