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.

lifestyle photography: a wise investment in you and your child's memories...

this special lady is a client and a friend of mine. she is the proud mama of three beautiful boys. the most recent little guy, jacob, pictured here, was the star of this week's session. i was lucky enough to photograph his live birth back in june. what a powerful experience that was for me.

ONE of the many reasons i admire jenn is because she does what i wish i had done...what many moms wish they had done-- she continually invests in portraits with EACH of her children as well as her family. so often we have family shots and regular group images of the kids which is wonderful. taking it to the next level by capturing moments together with each child is so so powerful. as we all know...the years fly by. how amazing will it be for this mom to look back and relive these special days of one-on-one and family togetherness.

i applaud this family for investing in the preservation of their family memories.

do YOU have special pics with your kiddos?
i do but not nearly enough. when i wanted to capture these moments with my boys i usually set up a tripod and took the pictures myself. it was a pain and most always took the spontaneity out of the moment. i wish i had hired a photographer and i wish i had dozens more images of me with my boys when they were younger.

don't make the same mistake! call me--i will preserve your magic moments forever.

thanks jenn and greg for trusting me to be your photographer and your friend all these years!

one of the first images of jacob ever taken:

here is an image of these two that i took just moments after the birth. (notice the tear running down her cheek--precious!)

and look at him now--3 months! what a cutie pie!
