I was blessed with a gift to make people comfortable In front of my lens and capture my subjects true spirit.
I love my craft an have been photographing nearly my whole life. I started at a very young age around 7 with my moms Instamatic Snapping a picture of her giving my dad his Christmas gift , A new truck. My influences are diverse from story telling Rockwell inspired images to simplicity of the old masters. It gives me a wonderful feeling when I show my clients their work and they can't believe I captured the images they see or begin to cry
I own a carriage trade studio in a non metropolitan area for over 20 years , I attribute my longevity and success to the Originality that goes into all of my clients work, the high standards of quality and customer service you will receive.
