General Information

The increased accessibility of digital cameras has made it possible for many who do not have a formal education in photography to create quality photos. A photography degree is awarded to an individual after years of courses in areas such as lighting, composition, and color. This education allows the professional photographer to produce high quality photographs in a variety of settings on a consistent basis. I hold a Bachelors degree in photography from Brooks Institute in California. There are many different areas of specialty in photography. My area of specialty is portraiture: the photography of people. When photographing people, as opposed to landscapes or objects, an important dimension is introduced: personality. Furthermore, when photographing families and groups of people, not only is the photographer searching to bring out personality but the interaction of those personalities. A lot of time is spent in preparation for a family shoot. You need to spend time thinking of clothing and props you want to use as well as timing the shoot during a part of the day that is convenient for all those involved. My job as your photographer is to make the most of your efforts and to take full advantage of our time together.

The best photographs are sometimes ones that are created by capturing fleeting moments. Moments that if not preserved in time would be only whispers in our memories. My life's work and passion is based on preserving these brief moments that are authentic and genuine glimpses of you and your family. My ability to be prepared at all times to capture these moments consistently is due to my years of experience and training. However, my success is also due to my ability to interact with those who are in front of the camera. My easy-going nature and relaxed approach to photography allows your and your family’s true personality to come through in the photograph.There are hundreds of images on this site, all of them captured by me. In order to ensure the highest quality, I choose to be responsible for every step of the process from the first phone call to make the appointment to delivery of the finished product. I am the sole photographer, retoucher and artist. My goal is to provide images that are unique, beautiful and timeless. I am fully committed to producing a quality product. However, I am more rewarded by the emotion my photographs emit from my clients. The passion I have for my work is fueled by this response.
