Physical beauty is temporary. Life is temporary. We have a limited time on earth and we need to enjoy the beauty in all things, eating the whole fruit and spitting out the seed. Life has brought me to a place where I can explore and share feminine beauty and to merely record what the Creator has allowed me to experience. Physical beauty is a moment. It is fleeting.

I have been a photographer for 18 years. I think of how the subjects I have captured have changed. Youth has become mature. Babies have become beautiful young women. Those young women will become mature much more quickly than they could imagine. Life is a process. Physical change is another of life’s experiences to be embraced, not feared, but also cherished. Denial is uglier than any change time brings. Beauty is to be cherished, revered and honored and even immortalized. It will soon be gone.

My place in this world is to preserve the beauty of a moment forever…to press it like a special flower in a book.

I grew up in Orlando, Florida where I started shooting as a hobby in 1986 while majoring in Psychology at the University of Central Florida. The hobby slowly grew into a very unexpected career first: in sports photography, then expanding into other areas.

I have always loved public speaking, so doing workshops is a true passion. I get to spend time with people that share an interest in photography while traveling to wonderful locations and working with some very special friends.

Special Thanks:

The people I owe most for my career are:

Wayne Collins for laying the foundation and starting the fire.
Jackie O'Brien for giving me a chance and opening the door.
Evie Dill for doing makeup at the start of my career so well that my work actually looked good.
Eric Sutton being a friend and working with me even when I had no idea what I was doing.
Mark Brouwer for the friendship and helping hand through the years.


Finally and mostly, to my mother. There aren't even words.
