About Me

My photo
I am a family, portrait, wedding and lifestyle photographer. The process of making people comfortable with the camera is just as much of a passion for me as is capturing the moment. It is important to me to make the photo session experience a memorable one as well. I know it's a generic statement but I am passionate about life and the urgency to document the moments as they unfold. Take time to invest in the days of your lives. Call me--I can help! I've created a "book of days" gallery on my website: where I do that for my own life. Hopefully it showcases who I am as a person as well as as a photographer.

place and time...

i love where these two are in life--the hope, the promise, and the love that encompasses them. i love the way they look at each other; their soft and sweet kisses and gentle touches. i love the way their eyes shine with glimpses of the future.

our photo session lasted over three hours and by the end of our time together i felt very connected to them. what great sports they were to allow me to drag them from spot to spot around the city.

i wish i had an assistant to hold a reflector because by the time the snow melted the sun was pretty strong. but in the end i think what we captured together was genuine and spontaneous which is, after all, what young love is all about.

thanks guys for being so fun to be around! i hope you love the images as much as i do.

Mary Beth was absolutely incredible to work with. She was amazing in her ability to make me feel more relaxed in front of the camera and truly beautiful in my pregnant state! Mary Beth was so creative in her shots for us and in the backgrounds she picked. Ryan and I couldn't have asked for a better experience and we are so very glad Mary Beth was the one to capture this special moment for us. We look forward to working with her in the future!!!
