Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.
Artistic expression has always been in my life. When I wasn't painting, I was sketching, sculpting (well trying to), finding things to craft, rehab or up cycle. Photography, some how, never entered into the rotation. Maybe because I always thought - no, my Brother is the photographer! (He is a wildly talented photographer turned firefighter FYI) However, on a day full of creative epiphanies, I grabbed his camera. I fell in love. Like hard core, life changing LOVE! I was able to capture lighting in a way I never thought possible. This passionate affair has continued for years, with no end in sight.
My photographic style is not traditional. I try to grab those moments in time we wish to save forever. I generally do not pose my clients, rather I ask you be yourself, laugh, smile and chat like we were meeting for lunch. I encourage people to bring their favorite music so we can really relax! I LOVE catching moments of laughter! They are so real, and although often not 'perfect' those photos tell the story I want to share. With events and weddings I have the same philosophy. Candid Captures and real moments. Of course I will make sure to get groups of people and family portraits, but you will not get your standard photos with heads tilted to the right.
