I fell in love with photography at the age of 13 years have been a professional since the age of 17, going to college to learn more and then opening my own studio at the age of 19. Since then, I have fallen in love with teaching others how to photograph their family, their stories and their lives using their very own cameras!
"I help people capture the beautiful moments of their lives and tell their stories through photography by giving them simple step-by-step instructions that the novice or advanced photographer can replicate. I share my passion for life and the story of love and JOY with everyone I meet!"
My art-form begins the moment we begin to communicate about your story. I want to hear about who you are, what makes you blissfully happy, what kind of music makes you dance like nobody is watching, where are your places and the things that you do that create the most peaceful and tranquil feelings in your inmost being. I want to capture and seal in time the story you are living right now. My hope is for you to be able to look back on the moment years later and remember the feelings you felt, what the spring sunshine felt like on your neck while capturing the depths of celebrating your 15 years of marriage to your soul’s mate, the silky softness of your baby’s skin when you kissed her sweet cheeks, the laughter of being silly with the family in the midst of a busy life… in that very moment.
I am also a seasoned photography instructor and mentor, teaching others for more than 20 years now. Teaching photography is a huge passion of mine. I really love helping others learn how to embrace the camera and use it to it’s best abilities so that you can capture amazing images of life, love and family. I teach all levels of photographers, from super basic to the experienced professional photographer. I'm happy to meet you in a local coffee shop, online in a virtual meeting or schedule time to shoot a live session with models!
I am looking forward to connecting with you! Please let me know how I can assist you in telling your story, whether it be a story session, photography mentor session, or my latest class/webinar schedule!
Grace and Peace,
