What I see with my eyes and what I feel with my heart makes me the photographer I am. This ability helps me bring out people’s inner beauty, to see things in you that you may not see in yourself. I understand people’s lack of self-confidence, a history of what others have said about you – things that make you want to hide. So many people hide when getting their photos taken, and when printed - don’t love the person that they see in the image.
I’ve had the same fear of giving myself to someone while in front of the camera. You might not be able to see the competent, confident person you are inside and out, but with my coaching we can reveal the real you. Lighting and posing are key to crafting images that highlight your best features. Everyone has the potential to share their story through photographs and leave a legacy for those we will one day leave behind. I want you to love your photos and, in this way, love yourself.
I create a warm, trusting bond with my clients in order to capture their unique energy in portraits. A personalized experience will be designed for your studio session.
Capturing beautiful family portraits for clients, friends, and family, as well as amazing travel images, has been an incredible journey; watching clients thrive, grow and change over the years. There are so many things that have influenced my interest in photography, much of which started from a very early age. I've always had a camera with me capturing fleeting moments in my life.
My contemporary photography style is inspired by the work of Annie Leibovitz, Lee Jeffries, Sue Bryce, Brooke Shaden, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Steve McCurry and many others. My love of travel has allowed me to capture many unique and special moments over the years, meeting people and engaging with them to create amazing photographs, and shaping my true spirit.
