The camera is the least important element in photography.” -Julius Shulman
I believe that wholeheartedly!
Creating images with feeling by photographing the way they make me feel is the simple philosophy behind my approach to photographing people and pets.
I have always believed that the best photos are those that are hard to look away from. The kind that catch your eye and make you want to study every tiny pixel. And when you think you’ve seen it all, you have to look back just once more to make sure you didn’t miss anything. Those are the kinds of photos I strive to take, photos that are engaging, compelling and worthy of displaying proudly in your home.
To me, portrait photography is all about capturing emotions, personalities and the dynamics of various relationships. And when I photograph you and your loved ones, that’s always my goal.
That twinkle of deep affection in a father’s eye when he looks over to his wife holding their first born. The calm serenity that overcomes an expecting woman as she gently touches her swollen belly. The heat between a newly engaged couple who can’t seem to stop staring at each other. The commanding presence of a high school senior who’s posing with enough confidence for their entire graduating class. Or that ounce of mischief in a brother’s sly grin as he looks up at his older sister.
Let me share my passion with you and create photos of your loved ones, that you will love forever!
