As an artist I put a lot of emotion into a creation that I get to call my own piece of work in order to show who I am to my audience. I like to incorporate people in my artwork who I believe are beautiful that I also have a personal connection with. With this being said I always try to show the personal connection within the work with things like body language, facial expressions, and the overall mood of the photo/photos. The lifestyle of the people I capture in photos often inspire my work, whether the lifestyle shows in the photos or not. I do not merely want to capture the image still, but bring it to life as though my viewers were there.
