I love the opportunity to photograph families and pets as they really are, in relaxed, natural settings. Everyone, especially children, are at their best when they are caught in the act of being themselves. This is why I focus on informal portraits and headshots that communicate a feeling and a story.

I also enjoy nature photography, poetry, and graphic design - combining all three to share the intricacy and beauty of this marvelous world we are blessed to live in.

Perhaps best of all, I find photography to be a joy to share. Children grow up much too quickly, gorgeous sunsets are one of a kind, and flowers bloom only for a season.

It is my privilege to capture these moments for you...
