My name is Colleen Harrington. I have background in education, speak Spanish fluently, and share a home with the love of my life. I would be honored to photograph your story.
As a ten-year-old, I loved capturing images of flowers and insects, ice on the trees in January, the texture of leaves, and most of all, the expressions and features that described my family as I knew them.
Now, looking back at the images that I captured so many years ago, I value them not only for the character that they captured in my family, but because I have a document of my family that will last for generations to come.
Like my grandfather and aunt, I learned that I could use photography to highlight the authentic spirit of people and places familiar and unfamiliar. I found that my camera could be an invitation to new environments and a vehicle for discovery. My intention is to create an emotional connection between the viewer and the image which reflects my understanding of the subject.
I would be honored to photograph the expressions, features and connection that describes your family, which will be treasured for generations to come.
