I began photography as a hobby, taking action sports photos of friends, and candid photos of family. As an art student, I used my photography skills to capture landscapes, florals and other subjects as a study to paint murals, oil paintings, and hand painted china. Over a period of time my photography became my art. I began to receive request for prints of my art photographs as well as request for portraits, and weddings. I found my true passion and enjoyment.
Knowing I wanted photography to become my profession, I continued my education at Nossi College of Art, studying commercial digital photography.
I describe my photography as somewhat traditional with an artistic flair, capturing the true love, romance, and excitement of a couple on their wedding day. Photographing families large and small having fun, relaxed, capturing the memories that last a life time. That special expression on a child’s face that thrills the parents and grandparents each time they see the photo.
I am thankful for my talent in the art of photography, it allows me to meet so many friendly people. I have the opportunity to capture the memories of their special events, and happy occasions.
