People hire me to tell the story of where they are today and where they want to go. I capture some of life’s greatest moments for families, expecting parents, loving couples, graduating seniors, and all of life’s milestone occasions. I create images for entrepreneurs, actors and models, and business professionals that say all the right things. And whether you want a professional headshot or a memorable portrait, I create photos that tell compelling stories words can’t express.

My Story

As an adolescent, I spent hours drawing, writing and playing the piano. I gleaned inspiration from many artists and tried to replicate their magic and brilliance in my own creations.

I love art, but something was missing. The soloist mentality of writing, drawing and playing the piano just didn’t fulfill me, and then I did it …

I picked up a digital camera and found my true love. With the very first click of my new toy, I was fascinated by the relationships that photography creates between people and the beautiful things in life like love, laughter and tears of joy.

Seven years later, I’m still madly in love with the stories that unfold in front of the camera. Along my journey, I studied lighting techniques, participated in several photography workshops, and uncovered my true calling – headshot and portrait photography.

My passion for people is what makes me a great photographer. I wake up every morning delighted to start the day because of the twinkle in my clients’ eyes when I create classic, timeless images that make them look and feel amazing. And what really warms my heart is when I can capture people’s charisma despite their fears of the camera. When you see your photos, and your face lights up with a big smile, I know I’ve done my job. 

I invite you to browse my portfolio and experience the many beautiful stories I’ve captured.
