I have harbored a lifelong interest in the visual arts and I’m passionate about using the medium of photography to create portraits that capture the spirit and personality of my subjects.
I seek to establish a real relationship with my clients. Being photographed can be a very personal experience and it is important to me that I know who I’m shooting when attempting to bring their energy through the lens, otherwise it seems less than authentic. I take the time with each client to get to know them a bit before their shoot, which lets them get to know me, as well. After all, who wants a stranger shooting photos of them?
I studied photojournalism and broadcast in college, where I had the opportunity to travel abroad to New Zealand in 2005 with International Student Volunteers. That trip was pivotal in the development of my passion for nature and landscape photography. New Zealand is stunningly beautiful, almost unbelievably so in places. As our group worked and toured the islands, I documented my experiences through my photos. It was so important to me to capture that time and my experiences.
When I returned to the States, I continued shooting and eventually invested in quality gear. I was fortunate to be able to move overseas to Italy for nearly three years. My time there and in the surrounding countries provided yet another great opportunity to develop my skills.
I believe that high-quality photography should be available to everyone, regardless of budget, and I want you to be happy with your experience. For that reason, I enable clients to piece together the products and features that appeal to them based on their needs. Take a look at a few options here. I also offer payment plans.
I offer custom portrait sessions for families, couples, and people with their animals as well as engagements, weddings, seniors, boudoir, and glamour/pin up photography. To schedule a session, please Contact Me. Thank you for visiting and I look forward to working with you!
