Capturing personality and a perfect moment in time are certainly what I strive for with my photography. With a lifetime as a creative behind me, moving into professional photography in 2006 was a natural evolution. The photographic journey has taken me places I would never have imagined.
Over 25 years of my career has been as a graphic designer creating marketing concepts from inception to completion – from identity branding to photography, from creative layouts and writing to printed product as well as managing advertising budgets. That experience gives me a creative edge as I create stories with prints, storyboards, montages and books of clients photo sessions.
Having a life-long fascination with the human face and body have made the migration to photography a welcomed and happy addition. When you are retouching a face you certainly have an intimate relationship with that person and it's so rewarding to help people show their best side. I study every day to hone my craft and put my heart and soul into every photo session and enhancment. I love shooting babies and kids, staged set-ups for commercial work and events, performance arts, engaging in the dynamics of groups and families, as well as the more personal sessions of maternity photography. In my spare time, I get outside and capture the beautiful world around us. My home-based business supports a studio and office with the latest in technology and software which helps me optimize those images in post-production. I embrace new technologies and refining techniques. The creative and imaginative treatments on my images are limitless.
