In learning photography over the years, I have gained a deeper appreciation of art, of people, and hard work.  To me, photography is more than just the act of taking a picture.  It is about preserving a moment, a person, an emotion so that it is forever etched in time and memory.  Anyone can take a picture, but to photograph someone is something more.

It is about framing a subject and understanding them.  Capturing the essence of what makes this person unique and special in this world, and then reflecting that and displaying it so that everyone can see it.  This is what I strive to do when I photograph my subjects.  


Your memories are precious, and you deserve a photographer who strives to capture them in the best light possible.
