I asked my cousin Val if she would let me take some low-key shots of her. She agreed, but niece Makenzie loves her Aunt Val and wanted to just be with her and in her arms. I thought it to be a sweet photo. Taken in Pueblo, Colorado, July 2010 with a Nikon D90.

Featured in the “Tattoo, Piercing and Body Modification” group, July/August 2010.

Placed in the Top 10 “At Peace” Challenge in “The Human Condition” Group, January 2010.

Photography to me isn’t just about capturing beauty or magic. It’s about capturing life as it is. Whether that’s ugly, dirty, beautiful, complicated, simple or slightly altered – it’s the perception of the person behind the camera. That’s what makes the art of photography so real and unique, and that’s why it’s a passion that drives me and leaves me wanting more.
