Who I am


I married my Jr. High sweetheart November 7, 1998. We have two beautiful daughters. I am a self-taught photographer and I have been professionally photographing for a little over ten years. I love sweets and to read. Autumn is my favorite time of year and I adore earth tones! I am so grateful for my family and friends. I love, love, LOVE the mountains and would rather be there than anywhere else.


My Goal

My goal is to make your session about you, not about what fad is popular.  I do not like the “posed look” of photographs, I enjoy the natural look and flow of photographs.  I love to see the natural look on a child’s face instead of the “Say cheese!” look!  I love the details in the eyes, or the freckles on their faces, why take from that?  Sometimes you just need to see that side, not all the time, but sometimes it is nice to have a photograph of just the eyes.  I want to capture what is really your personality so I don’t use a lot of props, sometimes less is more.  I like to use the surroundings that we have and sometimes all you need is a field and the setting sun!
