ABOUT

“Life is not a dress rehearsal.” 
– Rose Tremain

“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.”
– Andy Warhol

“Enjoy the journey and try to get better every day. And don't lose the passion and the love for what you do.”
– Nadia Comaneci

Thank you for visiting my website. As a passionate artist, photographer, designer and retoucher, I'd like to tell you a little bit about who I am and what I can do for you.

 

With over 20 years experience in entertainment advertising, I have developed a unique sense for captivating images with visual storytelling, a keen eye for quality through the lens, and polished retouching skills. I believe creative collaboration and getting to know each unique client for a more accurate vision are a must.

 

My personality is patient, easy going, and playful. I'm a LOVER of God, fun, adventure, new cultures, the performing arts, newborn feet and toes, the great outdoors, humanity, travel, healthy living and inner journeys, high fashion style photography, nature photography, surreal/fantasy composites, clever ideas, self expression, new mommies and daddies to be, K.I.S.S, and beauty from within. 

 

As a primarily on-location, (I go to you), portrait photographer with a arty / slight high fashion flare, I'd love to invite you to a private session with me as I uniquely photograph your inner beauty, expression, spirit, and precious loved ones. My portrait specialties are wedding, business headsots, dance, women and the people they adore.

 

Our existence is truly short lived, life should be experienced with passion in every moment. When our memories fade, we can rely on photographs to always bring us back those moments we cherish most. 

 

Please say HELLO under contact. My consultations are free. Now, I'll let my portfolio do the talking ;-)

 

Best always!
