My first experience with photography was with a 35mm point-and-shoot camera at the age of ten. Although I didn’t know what I was doing, I loved the ability to take pictures of the things around me. In college, as a graphic design major, I took a couple of photography classes and learned to use a manual 35mm camera. There I learned about composition and exposure and gained a formal artistic basis for my photography. After college, I went to work for a printing company where I learned how to fine tune images to make them look their best. These skills enable me to provide a high level of creative retouching.
With the birth of my son, Isaac, I found a new inspiration for my photography. He has also shown me the importance of capturing his changing moods and his developing personality. He is my inspiration for sharing my photographic vision with others. I look forward to helping you preserve the memories that will last a lifetime.
By working on location or in the client’s home, I create a comfortable environment so that the experience will be relaxed and enjoyable. My goals are to produce great portraits and have fun while doing it. Unlike the big portrait chains, I take the time to get to know my clients, to find out who they really are and to bring that out in the portraits.
