Photography has been a passion of mine ever since I can remember. My father gave me a point & shoot camera when I was 7 & I have been photographing ever since! I studied photo journalism in college & gravitated towards features which lead me to open my portrait & event business in 2000. Photographing children & families is my focus, but I also shoot executive head shots, events & special family days. Illustrating the true essence of a person is ideal in any portrait and this is what I try to do. I prefer using natural light when possible & enjoy shooting in outdoor settings which brings a relaxed & candid feeling to my portraits. I photograph clients in comfortable & easy settings, chatting with them throughout their sessions enabling them to relax and ease into their experience. To create a lasting image of someone can help those I photograph cherish moments in time for years to come.
