The Mundane details of a life

Did you see American Beauty? Remember when that one character watched the video of the plastic bag swirling in the wind? That scene touched me. My mom brought me up to appreciate the simple things in life and it’s a philosophy that has bled into my own work. Whenever I’m on a shoot, I look for the small details of someone’s life, which when put together with personality, expresses the essence of human being’s existence.

So here’s my life, in photos below. The life I share with my fiance. It’s not that exciting but it’s beautiful and there are little things that we enjoy together.
