When you work with me, I’ll make sure you feel comfortable and relaxed. (It’s not your job to be a professional model!)
We will have fun, and you can totally be yourself. If you need a litle direction because you don’t know what to do, I’ll offer posing suggestions, or give you something to do so you can focus on a task instead of the camera.
My style is authentic, timeless and artistic… I like images that are uncluttered and slightly minimalistic. I edit with true-to-life colors so the photos look vibrant and alive, and I give myself very high standards for my work because I know how important it is to the families who will treasure their photos for years to come.

When I’m not working, you’ll probably still find a camera in my hand. I might be bribing my kids with ice cream so they’ll do my latest fantasy photo idea. Or I’ll be off exploring the wilderness searching for new waterfalls. I consider people photography my “work” and fine art & nature photography my hobby! (Check out my Fine Art Prints here!) What can I say, I just love taking pictures too much to leave my camera at home!
I love the wilderness, mossy trees and the smell of the forest after it rains. I’ll venture anywhere for a photo and my shoes are never too special to get dirty.
