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!
