P-A-S-S-I-O-N-A-T-E...... it's who i am...... it's part of me!!

Whether it's my faith, my family, my business, my burt's bees, or my coffee.... passion is always involved! But my passion for photography goes much deeper than the composition or the editing. For me, my photography is about the emotion captured, the moment locked in time forever that can transcend a lifetime. But to go even deeper, the emotion and moment are only created due to the relationship established between me and my client. It's important to me that my clients trust me enough to relax in front of me, relax to the point that I can capture the "real them". Not the smile they've been taught to do since they were 2 but the laugh they give when they read a text that was accidentally auto corrected that makes it totally inappropriate but even more hysterical. Or the shrug of a shoulder that a woman in love gives as she giggles when her better half whispers something in her in ear. Or the overwhelming joy that glazes a new parents face as they look at the life that was miraculously created by them. These moments are priceless and intimate, so to share them with a stranger is hard but to share them with a stranger and a camera is even harder. So my job begins with the first introduction.... it begins by knowing what environment they like, what personality they have, and what images capture their attention - because whether they know it or not, there is a reason they are drawn to those images. It's my job to listen to their answers and create a climate that may not be perfect for every person but is perfect for them. It's my job to allow them to know me, so I'm not a stranger but a friend. Then it's my job to understand how to technically capture the images they want. To work through tough lighting and unforeseen problems, bypass the kinks that can always arise and produce a product that they can fall in love with time and time again. So to me, my photography can't just be about taking a picture.... it starts with earning my clients trust, which then gives me the ability to direct them in natural and comfortable moments, all while using my knowledge to find good light and technically execute a correct portrait, completing the process with subtle and natural enhancements to give a simple, yet impeccable result. So please take the time to explore my site because by viewing my images you are learning more about me and about my passion. And when you're done, head over to the contact page to let me know what you liked or how I can capture your memories for you!! Hope to hear from you soon!!
