It can easily be said that with the age of digital photography, anyone can be a photographer. That may be true, but it doesn't mean that anyone can create quality portraits. Over the years, I have shared my photography with family and friends. When friends and family request that I take their pictures, it is always a great compliment and I love to capture their memories through my camera lens.
After dabbling in my own creative endeavors, I worked as a paid photographer at a professional portrait studio where I learned a lot about the technical side of composing a portrait. I also learned that a good picture commands emotions, and sometimes has very little to do with how technical or "perfect" it actually is.
I quickly got bored doing 20 minute portrait sittings where I allowed only 12-15 images for each session. I felt like my creativity was being under-utilized and it was clear that the goal was to take as many "good" pictures in as little time as possible.
Over time, I have developed a style that is simple, yet dramatic. Most of my portraits are composed using natural light, and special moments. I enjoy all types of photography include maternity, weddings, engagements, senior portraits, and children's & infants portraits. I am available for travel, special events, boudoir, and pet photography as well.
