Photography is more than a snap shot. It is a way to preserve, to honor, to create, to connect, to tell a story. I hope I do all these things.

Portrait Work

I began my photography business in 2004 with a focus on Portraits, mainly High School Seniors. Although I have traveled many paths since then I still find joy in documenting a time and place in the lives of people, capturing the personallty of a family and creating an heriloom to be charished.
