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.

making the most of a special day....

birthdays always seem to be centered around cake and ice cream, balloons and presents.

for this, casey's 4th birthday, i decided it was time to be more 'present' in his life and spend some quality time being creative. so in honor of that i uploaded these images straight out of the camera. no editing, no extra time spent at the computer. and i love them even though they were shot in our dimly lit basement.

we got messy. we laughed. we got messier. and we have these lovely pictures to remind us of our fun.

the best gift i can give my kiddos, no doubt, is to give less "presents" and to just be more 'present".

happy birthday my sweet sweet baby boy! affectionately termed " the cheese man".

Couldn't agree with you more MB. They are only young once, but we forget that and don't appreciate the time we have to be present with them. Thanks for the reminder. Those photos are beautiful, by the way, sans editing!
