about me
about me about me

I'm curious...  interested in a little bit of everything... an observer... and I like to keep it simple.

I've liked taking pictures for as long as I can remember.

Both of my parents were into photography, along with my grandfather, who gave me my first camera when I was eight years old.
I was born in the United States, where I started my photography career as a photojournalist and then branched out into weddings and portraiture. I bring a journalistic  approach to my wedding photography, trying to be as unobtrusive as possible. My baby and child photos are about capturing natural, striking images of your children at various stages of their lives.

For me, it's more than just taking pictures. I don't take it for granted when someone trusts me with the recording of their once in a lifetime events. It's rewarding to get to know my clients and to be there with them to document their journeys, from their engagement and wedding to pregnancy, babies, and the growth of their family. 

I'm grateful that my work is something I enjoy. It makes me happy if I can give people a beautiful, unexpected glimpse of themselves.
