I love the 'aha' moment of the reveal, when I feel like I've really captured a clients vision, vibe, and intention. I also find the precision and technicality of making high-end digital images to be extremely gratifying. I'm passionate about being a collaborative partner in helping clients exceed their goals.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have made images for many purposes from creating portraits both candid and posed, for couples, family and artist to beautifully capturing products and real estate.
