About Me

About Me

I’m passionate about creating photographs that touch people. I want to bring out that characteristic expression that makes your friends and family say “Oh yes, that’s the real you!”

I love to show the connection and tenderness shared by people who love each other.

I do this by making my photo shoots fun. I want to have a good time, and the best way to do that is to make sure everyone is relaxed and happy. I know that may sound contrary to your experience of posing for pictures, but it works. Take a look at the real smiles and expressions of the people on this website.

I can do the same for you.
