This section of the website is usually devoted to the educational background of a photographer, major bookings, and any other vital information that is supposed to WOW a potential client. While these things are important, I feel it is more important for you to know me, the person who hopefully you will spend time with, as I take your portraits.
The most important thing you need to know about me is that I love what I do. I have been a photographer since 2003. Taking your portraits is an honor for me. It is not a job; it is my passion. I have never grown bored with it. It always excites me. At most every session, clients are amazed at how patient I am with them, their family, their children, and the entire sitting. I love getting down at the level of the child and capturing who he or she is. Sometimes during a session, children need to take a snack break or newborns need to take a feeding, and it is during those times I find myself getting caught up in talking to their parents! I enjoy getting a feel for who you are because that is what I want to capture in your portrait...YOU!
When it comes to events and weddings, I firmly believe the client is the boss. During the preplanning meeting, I like to create a timeline with the bride and her family so they can get an idea of how the photography portion of the day can flow. During this meeting, I also show an entire wedding gallery, so the client can see what my work looks like from start to finish.
I gave up Diet Coke in 2015 after being addicted to it for over 20 years! Up next...chocolate and french fries? Maybe! I try to be a willing and humble servant for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I have a wonderful husband and two children who enrich my life more than anyone can imagine. At the end of the day, I feel so incredibly blessed to have a career I love--creating portraits that people love. I hope to see you behind my lens!
