In this modern age, you have almost unlimited knowledge at your fingertips. For example, there’s no shortage of YouTube videos on how to do just about anything from fixing a broken lawn mower to learning photography.  But, if you’re like me, videos can soon become a frustrating way to learn. There’s always something you want to ask but can’t, so it’s preferable to invest time in more personalized learning from someone you interact with directly in a face to face setting.

I love teaching photography this way to people like yourself, even if you feel like you’re a complete beginner. In fact, every great photographer was a beginner at some point, and I’m a strong believer that there’s no such thing as a stupid question.

I decided to offer private lessons to inspire others to find the beauty in their own backyard and discover a passion for creating treasured photos of their own families.  You don’t have to go anywhere special to do that because home is special enough, if you know what to look for.

Yes, there are a few lucky moments, but a true artist carefully chooses exactly what to include in the frame and what to leave out.
You want to be inspired by what we create, and my goal is to help you create photos that take your breath away every time you look at them.
