Today, I would like to talk about the importance of portraiture in women and why is it that I love photographing women. Some of you, who personally know me, might know the philosophy behind my work but for those who don’t, I would like to share it. I believe that all women should have the opportunity to be photographed. Why?
Because a woman’s life is always a constant fight.
They go to work, they go to school, they make sure their kids are ready every morning before school, they make dinner, they go the gym, they go grocery shopping, they are on a diet, they spend money on makeup, clothing, and hair products to impress their partner every day. They deal with family, friends, and even pet problems. However, it doesn’t matter how busy or how tired they are, they always make the time to welcome us with a smile.
Every woman has a different story because they all go through different stages in their life; however, they all have one thing in common: they only want the best for their family and friends no matter at what cost.
I am proud to say that I am grateful to have the opportunity to photograph these women because I get to hear their goals and their triumphs and they resemble the voice of the two women I love the most; my mom and my wife.
