I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up, so I made it a lifelong adventure to find out. I finally figured it out in a really circuitous route, and I became a “people photographer.” Yup! I specialize in capturing people’s unique personalities, and it is so interesting. It has made my life rich and full, and I hope I have made a difference in the lives of those who I photographed.
Now in my second decade as a full time professional photographer of weddings, portraits, events, and corporate; I have found my free expression…MY personality. I am loving it, and invite you to let me find yours.
