Photography has always been my love…even before I knew it was.

As a little girl, countless hours were spent turning the pages of the family albums my Aunt Thelma would put together. Images of my father as a boy, my great aunt who passed before I was born and many unknown family members before my time touched my fingertips. I was given the pleasure of seeing a glimpse into their lives.

My ancestors were posed and staged as they stood there stoic in front of the camera…their eyes piercing the lens with the almost hypnotizing  gaze in their eyes.

I could see their story. Their life. Their love. Their struggle, joy and pain.

Their legacy.  

These photographs I held onto  were so precious, but it was not until later on that I realized how much these precious images actually held on to me.  The impression it made was so profound.  To look into the eyes of some long past and understand that their legacy still touches the lives of people today.

Your legacy is every life you’ve touched. – Maya Angelou
