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.

youth, passion and deep colors

i was ELATED when this young man was into my suggestion to travel downtown and do his senior portraits by some cool art. i am drawn to the colors, the passion and the intensity of graffiti art and so was he.

i had a place in mind that i had discovered a few months back but we stumbled onto some amazing stuff and never made it to the place i was thinking of. so spontaneity won over and, as a result, we captured some strong and honest images of him.

these vibrant colors are allegorical of youth and passion and possibility of it. true. raw. real.

but we also wanted to capture another side of him so we headed to a wonderful simple field with the mountains as a distant backdrop. he felt comfortable here. relaxed. peaceful. reflective. and i think that shows in the images.

i SO enjoyed spending time with you jeff. your future is as bold as the colors on those graffiti walls. don't change. you are wise beyond your years my friend.
