After 20 years of commercial photography and portrait photography I have learned that having tens of thousands of dollars worth of equipment and knowing the latest techniques had little to do with a great image. It is not only about being able to see and capture a beautiful moment, but--perhaps more importantly--it is about creating a fun, relaxed, and natural environment that allows beautiful moments to happen.
Learning this has allowed me to take picutes at a higher level than ever before. My perspective and appreciation for life has enabled me to see moments and details that I may have missed before. This is my passion--to see and capture those little details and expressions. For me, it is important to encourage individuals during a portrait session to go out on a limb and know that it's okay. It's to see, accept, and appreciate what makes us who we are.
