Documentary Photography

"I can’t even describe how much I love these.

I mean, I knew I would, but to see them is such a gift. I can’t wait to see them on our walls! You are obviously a brilliant artist, but what I appreciate most is you. You are genuine, attentive, and so calm and kind in your interactions. You put us all at ease and I think that comes through in your photos. Oliver still talks about you and asks when he can see you next! (I hope soon!) Thank you so much for sharing this time with us."
