Art has been at the center of my life for as long as I can remember.  I've drawn, painted, done design, printmaking, and everything else in between.  I switched my major in college to photography and graphic design.  I love learning about my clients, and creating photographs that reflect your beauty, interests and personality!

What can you expect from your session with me?  Well, I stumble a lot when I shoot and I think faster than I can talk.  I love working with people and getting to know their story.  And I love being able to tell that story.... with and image.  I want to be your best friend for a hour or more and share who you are with the world.  This isn't just a career to me, this isn't just photography to me.... it's art.  I hope to make your images pieces of art as well.

I can honestly since the beginning I was always looking to be that different, but old time photographer.  I am the type of photographer that will climb a tree, chairs, lay on the ground, go in the water, or whatever else just to capture a different angle.  There are times I ask my clients to do the same, if they're up for it.  I like to capture the inner beauty and personality of my clients; posed, I can do that.  If you like the normal looking at the camera and smile, yes, I can do that as well.  If posed, I want you to feel comfortable and yourself, as if I'm not even there.

Have I been published.... yes. Have I won awards.... yes.  Do I have a degree in photography.... yes.  Does any of that really matter to you.... Probably not.  You won't think I am more cool or tell your friends about me because of those things.  And you won't make your decision to hire me based on that list.  And I don't want you to.  I want you to LOVE my work, but more so, I want you to feel you can trust me.  I don't want to just show up and take photos of you.... I want to hang out and take amazing pictures with you!
