I want to take the best photograph you’ve ever seen of yourself. It’s as simple as that.
My promise to you is that I will change the way you view yourself. I have a reputation for capturing the real you, the you, your children adore; the you, your partner so loves; the you that your friends turn to, the you that shines through every situation, every moment, and for my camera lens. Of course you’ll see your smile, but you’ll also see your strength, your love, your dedication, your conviction, and your sense of humor; all the qualities that make you unique and beautifully you!
The art we create together is something you and your family will treasure as heirlooms to pass down from one generation to the next. I create beautiful, distinctive, custom photographic art and an experience you will enjoy alone or together;
it will be a day you will always remember.
And other stuff..
Continuing Education: I attend my industry annual conferences along with educational courses and professional mentoring throughout the year.
