ABOUT

  • About

    I love to capture the beauty and memories of people. Capture who we are in this very moment. Capture the moments that you, your children or even grandchildren can look back on in 30 years and cherish them. I love to capture the special touch and dreamy thoughts of engaged couples. Your excitement, love and elegance of your wedding day. I love to capture the beauty of childhood. The skipping in the mud puddles and dancing in the fallen leaves. I love to capture the family, the mom snuggling tight and giving lots of kisses, the dad holding hands and giving piggyback rides, the laughter and giggles. I love to capture the excitement and beauty of graduates, finishing out their great achievement. I love to photograph the elderly, the beautiful way life has paved lines of living and love into them. I love to capture people as they are, where they are at in life and the beautiful, unique way that they are crafted.
