A LOVE SO DEEP
It is said that a photograph is worth a thousand words, and this image was no exception. This kiss can be felt from a mile away. I love that no matter how invested we are in both of the protagonists in the story, the real captivating detail is that intrusive and strong hand placement. That specific touch is transformative. It elevates the image and sucks us in. This incredible monochrome is the fifth finalist for our First Annual Showcase Gallery.

LEARN ABOUT THE FINALIST :
I am a wife and a mother, two jobs I hold most dearly. I am also an educator, a job I love dearly, however on hold as I spend these early years with my two young kiddos. I am exploring my love of photography. Trying new things, exploring different styles and genres. I believe I am best summed up as documenting our daily and dreaming of creations. I believe that beauty can be found anywhere, from the small looks and little hands of my adoring three-year-old, the joy and freedom in my six-year-old, the connection of lovers, the fierceness of one’s soul, and the way the light and shadows play. I aim to capture it all.
