I'm driven by a desire to work for myself and to really love what I do every day! And when your profession is empowering our youth, strengthening a family bond and creating lasting memories that outlive our own, how could you not love what you do. Being a Portrait Photographer gives me the ability to change lives, from our imperfect thinking of ourselves, to the reality within.
“Children whose parents display family portraits in the home grow up with a greater confidence and sense of belonging, it has been revealed” According to research conducted by Venture New Generation Portraits. Children viewing their likeness in relation to their family in wall portraits have a better connection and feel their parents love when viewing the art in their family’s home.
For High School Seniors, this will probably be the last time you are professionally photographed until your engagement. This is a special time in your life, that will not come again. It's a right of passage to experience this for your senior year of high school! I enjoy giving you an outlet to shine and be creative in your own way which is such a catalyst for your future. I enjoy seeing the excitement on your face during your portrait session and when you are deciding on which portraits to pick that will hang on your walls for so many years to come.
When a blended family comes together for that first family portrait that will hang over the mantle. This creates a bonding like nothing else a family has! Every look to this family portrait says family, unity, oneness and forever.
The strong emotions coming from asking someone to take their hand in marriage should always be displayed so that it can give affirmation to what started it all. Engagement, Lifestyle & Save the Dates are allowing them to come together like never before. One reason in particular that couples enjoy these photos is that many don’t have nice, professional pictures together before their wedding day, the Popular Science technology editor and part-time wedding photographer Stan Horaczek stated. “These types of photo shoots give couples a chance to have pictures taken of themselves that actually capture them at the time after they got engaged—happy, deliriously in love—as opposed to the often rushed pictures taken during the wedding itself, he says.”
Of course, my Why would not be complete without mentioning the all-important family pet (whatever that may be). The crazy laughter that family pets bring to the circle of life. Whether a dog, cat, horse, pig & the list can go on. Capturing their essence, their quirky side and their love for their parents/siblings is so important in their short life. Getting that one amazing portrait to hang up for all time will shine love on you forever. They give us so much every day of their lives, we can show that love in return by giving them a place of memory in our home!
My love of community keeps me active with fundraisers throughout the year. Raising money and helping fellow small businesses is a way we can contribute to our community that we love. Do you have a not for profit that you would like us to work with? Let us know!
My What: Think of your portraits as an investment in your family, your home, your legacy. Why put up a painting of fruit or splattered paint on a canvas that will go out of style and stop matching your decor at some point, when you can invest that in your family.

What I offer you is a reflection of what I see as an artist, through my lens, capturing those sweet, funny, loving, intimate memorable moments for all time. I am an award winning photographer who takes pride in giving impeccable attention to detail, from my years of photography experience & knowledge, and my passion for crafting experiences for my clients that will be remembered forever!
