In retrospect, becoming an orphan at thirty-seven wasn't THAT bad. Yes, it
And yes, I've sat on a therapist couch a time or two so I could learn how to manage my special gifts or talents (
Today here's my biggest takeaway about learning to be more "me"
And by B.S. I mean brand story, my adventures of how

Marcia is listens with her eyes way before her ears catch with the conversation.
A simple glance is all it takes for her to have a clear sense of the varied emotions radiating across the room.
Which is why she seems to notice the candid expressions that turn a basic photo into a priceless portrait.
Her “all are welcome here philosophy” allows Marcia to embark on curious adventures daily
Moving though distinct life experiences with unconditional love by questioning things that don’t make sense as a human level.

Her ability to read the feeling of a room is shockingly accurate and she’s probably saved her kids a time or two from making bad friend connections.
Wishing she would never have to adult unfortunately, Marcia’s looking for new ways to try and “be forever young” because DAMN IT….Toys R Us went bankrupt and closed.
Will matter in 5 years, well then, make me care. If I had to sum up my theory into a simple sentence thats the one I’m sticking with.

My photo storytelling theory is that taking documentary family portraits help parents and children better communicate truth and reality.
It’s not about finding the perfect moment or saying capturing a good, funny reaction. As generations grow and change, providing someone with pictures and images that say this is who we are…in all our imperfect wonder.
It brings emotional texture to one’s beliefs and convey information with personality.
Documentary photography is an easy way to digest the real truth, nothing but the truth no matter how big or how small.
