About Me

Although it seems like I’ve been taking pictures my entire life, my path toward professional photography truly began with the impending birth of my first nephew.   Blindly walking into a local camera store I emerged with an all manual 35mm camera and a few rolls of film, and was instantly hooked.  The next few months I obsessively took pictures of everything (and I do mean everything) I could, producing some pathetic landscapes and blurry action shots as well as some black and white images of my grandmother in her home that are invaluable now.  Very quickly I realized that while I appreciate interesting composition and artistry, it’s the soul and emotion in photographs that makes an image sing.  For me, that is found in the human experience:

I am a people photographer.

One nephew eventually became three as our family expanded, and as babies turned into fast-moving toddlers I upgraded to a camera with auto-focus and then a digital SLR a few years later.  Photographing my own family expanded to photographing for friends:  engagements, weddings, new babies, and family portraits.  After several years juggling an unfulfilling full time job with my burgeoning  business I decided to pursue photography full time  and enjoy every day I can create fantastic images for clients and pursue my passion.

I look forward to hearing your story and working together to create an image that reflects the unique person you are.
