"The making of a portrait is a visual dance; non.threatening, no judgment, simply a trust that something will emerge.

As I look through the lens, it's just a feeling from my heart, to my brain, to my right thumb. The shutter button is pressed; that moment has passed forever, but inside my camera, the image of that moment is now preserved. I can't wait to see it, because the photograph is evidence that something magical happened.

The art of photography is minimal, decisive, a wonder, and always a gift." Bonnie Schiffman.
