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.

Photo display and random photos.

O-M-G--has it really been since May since my last blog post?

Well--I DO have a good excuse. We sold our house in 12 days and were in a rush to find another--quickly. And that was much more of a challenge than we had anticipated. Our "life" consisted of lots of sleepless night and anxiously waiting by the computer for proposals and counter proposals. We packed. We waited. We worried. We..ok I...drank lots of red wine. Two months later we a finally somewhat settled in our new home. And we are still living with boxes but at least we're making peace with them.

During the process I learned a lot about patience, about stress, about the benefits of long walks with my ipod and the virtue or not (or trying) to yell at the kids. Ahem...well somethings I was better at than others. No doubt.

On a fun and positive note, I recently had the pleasure of displaying some of my work in a new store open at 38th and Tennyson called "the giggling green bean".

The display showcases some of my recent (and favorite) work. I chose these pieces to hang up not only for their appeal but also because I so enjoyed working with the people in the images. Together, these images and the experience associated with capturing them, caused me to smile each time I look at them.

I am a photographer who loves the process--the journey if you will--of capturing the real side of my subjects. I am obsessed with the raw moments in life--unscripted, unplanned and mighty. I strive to really get to know the person (s) in front of my camera and giving them images that capture the honest moments in life. And i think one of my gifts is making people feel at ease enough to expose the real face we all have that often hides when a camera is pointed at us during our sessions together.

If you are in Denver, stop by this cool store in this cool neighborhood. And if you like the images--give me a call. I'd love to do a portrait session for YOUR family next! (If you mention this blog post or the giggling green bean display I will offer you $25 off your session!)
