Throughout life, there are times that it feels like the walls are caving in on you, draining your confidence and making it harder to keep going. Gaining confidence comes from finding sources of encouragement and happiness all around you. In my silver gelatin prints, I captured my own personal sources of inspiration that helped me get through this season of my life. I learned from them that I am capable of growth, progress, and success regardless of any challenges that may come my way. The satisfaction I felt in making these prints was one that could only have been achieved with the support I found in my subjects, and the confidence I gained from this process is something indescribable that I will cherish forever.
