When it comes to taking pictures of my family, I prefer to try and capture real moments rather than artificial poses.

In the months before quarantine, I traveled to Peru with my family. I used to live in Peru, and I’ve often acted as a guide to Machu Picchu. The last time I went, I met up with one of my high school friends and his family.

In times of uncertainty, there is nothing more uplifting than making plans to embark on a journey. It’s amazing how quickly you can transform your life through the simple act of movement. We all fall into the ruts of routine and expectation, but when the familiar becomes a burden it’s time for a change of scenery.
