I can say that being a film major in college trained my eye but what drives my eye is poetry. Visual poetry. My goal is to capture and present the true essence of people, objects, and moments through photography. To freeze precious moments and spirits in time is not only tremendously fun but an honor and reward. I want people to feel my work, not just see it. I hope that when people view my work they experience what I sought to capture. I want them to lose themselves in the stories I tell.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done a wide variety of shoots from headshots and portraits, to weddings and motivational speaker events. Other types of shoots I've done are engagement parties, family, newborn, banquets, and marathons and walks such as the Alzheimer's Walk and the American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure. No matter the shoot type, my goal is share my talent, my vision, and my personality with them. I want them to feel comfortable and feel like there is no where else I'd rather be than making their dream photos become reality.
