Thank you for clicking over here to find out a little bit more about me. 

Serving my clients is what I love to do.  Providing them with images that will be cherished for generations and making heirloom quality products available that they can display in their home and on their walls is a joy.  There is nothing better than delivering a beautiful wall portrait to a client knowing that they will walk past it every day and remember a specific time in their life that was important to them.

Hiring a photographer to document a specific time in your families history can be daunting.  Let my expertise, reputation and attention to great service take the guess work out of that decision.  One of my clients worded it this way - "When the results are important and there are no second chances, when it has to be right, I call you"  I can't think of any greater compliment. 

If you have any questions or are thinking about hiring me for your next professional photo session, click on the "contact me" link above.  I will get back to you as soon as I can.

I can't wait to meet you and become a part of your families history.
