Each person and place tells a story. It is up to me to see and hear these stories and freeze them in time to be retold again and again.
My degree in speech education and masters in theatre give added dimension to my art of photography. I’ve been trained to see the beauty of lighting, color, setting, relationships and the stories they tell. I’ve also learned how to communicate with people to bring out their best and make them comfortable. You tell your best stories in the best way when you are at ease and enjoying the process! I will be there to capture it!
My style is classic with a modern edge. It is important to me that your pictures look timeless in beauty while capturing the essence of here and now.

This means that when life is happening I can blend into the background and capture the candid moments. But when the time is right I will also lead you into poses that are natural and show you off at your best!
