I love capturing moments in a way people do not see or documenting places that many do not realize exist. There is something special watching a person's reaction to what was captured for the first time; every picture has a story and I get to share a little bit of it with each client. From fun to goofy, serious to candid, I truly enjoy being a part of the experience and creating new memories. Photography is not only a passion, it is a therapy for me. Having those qualities in a daily routine bring out the best in my work and is a joy to share with others.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have shot commercial and residential interiors, as well as events and portraiture. With real estate, I look for interesting and lesser known viewpoints or angles to create something slightly different than what we typically perceive or know. At events, I balance being invisible to capture special moments and being visible to have subject engagement with the camera. When working with individuals, I help both of us get comfortable through our interaction in order to connect on a deeper level and produce a rich final product. It is a special privilege to have this opportunity.

A fun fact about this photographer
I have traveled to approximately 20 countries and 40 states. Every time I go somewhere new, I build on those experiences to connect with others and visually share a piece of its memory. Besides that, I was born with an extra tooth (because who needs to be completely normal?)
