About MeEver since I can remember, I have always had a love of photography.
I credit my "eye for photography" to my mom who took the time to teach me to appreciate the simple beauties of God's creations. Also to my grandmother Marie who didn't just write poetry about God's creations but in her words she gave them life and personality.
I started off taking pictures of nature, sunsets, flowers, animals and of course my children. After winning first place several times in photo contests I decided to take my photography one step further and began doing portrait work.
Children are always fun, but I think that I find more enjoyment in taking pictures of adults who claim to "never take a good picture" and be able to capture a picture that helps them walk away feeling good about themselves. YOU CAN FIND BEAUTY IN ANYONE!
Weddings of course are on the top of my "favorites" list. To be able to share a couple's special day and be able to give them quality photos that will last a lifetime is an amazing feeling!
Modeling shoots are fun because they allow us as photographers to be more creative and "think outside the box". It is just so enjoyable to work with models because, well for one, you enjoy having your picture taken and are willing to work with us to obtain the optimum results.
I feel that pictures are so much more than just images on pieces of paper. They hold our greatest memories of special times and people who are dear to us and can be passed down from generation to generation along with the loving memories that tell "our story".
