I hate, no, hate is probably too strong of a word...I strongly dislike having my photo taken. The posing, the head tilting, the fake smiling is all way too much for me. Everyone is so worried about what they look like that they forget to be who they are.

That's why I decided to get into lifestyle photography. I create images that truly bring out the personalities of everyone taking part in the session.

- I am a certified Speaker, Trainer and Coach with the John Maxwell Team.

Why Photography?

- Started as a hobby in 2010 after first military tour in Afghanistan and have worked on my craft ever since. 

- It has become my passion to create images that capture character and emotion (not just light). 

- Decided in the summer of 2021 (after moving to Inkerman), to build my hobby into a business.
