Dontez A. Henderson, principal photographer

     I can remember carrying around my Kodak 110 film load camera as an adolescent taking pictures of anyone and everything. It was something unexplainable, a feeling I would get observing the world through that tiny viewfinder and with a click of the button I could share my perspective of the world. My most memorable moments would be anxiously awaiting behind the counter while the photo lab tech would thumb through the abundance of packaged pictures seeking mine. The excitement that manifested inside as I clumsily pulled open that pesky adhesive strip at the top of the package to liberate my images inside. That feeling still holds true every time I load my images on my computer for post processing.

"Il est difficile de vaincre ses passions, mais il est impossible de les satisfaire." - Madame Marguerite de la Sabliere


           It is in the contour of someones lips, in a wrinkle of a smile or the coyness in a glance. It is in the lightness of a fog that dances atop of river at dawn or in the exquisite, gentle descent of a setting sun at dusk. It is in the sudden discovery of a tiny finger or toe, in the angelic slumber of a newborn baby. It is in the moments within moments that I strive to capture, that I embrace with my eye and share through my craft. And hopefully, it's those moments within moments that I can capture and share that everlasting imagery with my clients.
