Broken is Beautiful

For Sara

Kintsugi I

We are all imperfect. We are all flawed. We are, or were, broken in one way or another. Being human, we strive to live up to our expectations. Then we fall short. We make mistakes. No one is perfect. We are as we are. And there’s so much beauty in that. There’s beauty in our cracks, there’s beauty in our flaws.

This image is the first of the series of portraits I’m creating based on the Kintsugi concept. This was shot with the lovely Asma Al Aloosi.
I’ve decided to start taking bookings for portrait sessions because I absolutely love it. I already have two shoots booked and I’m super excited! If you’re interested in booking a shoot with me just send me an email at
