Smile.

A client once told me that he has a photo that I took of his daughter hanging in their hallway at home, and it makes him smile every time he walks by it. This is my heart's desire for my work. To bring joy... one photo at a time. Not only do I hope we all have a good time while we take photos, but when it's all said and done, I hope that every time you look at your photos, you smile.

I've been doing this photo gig thing for over fifteen years. I'm not in it for fame or fortune (not even sure that's possible!). I just do it because I can't help but create. It's true. I love to write, draw, paint, design. And capturing moments, smiles, and loving relationships for my friends is so much fun. But I also don't want it to turn into a J.O.B. I like to have space in my life to play with my kids or take a painting class. So I don't advertise, and I don't offer fancy complicated packages with albums. I keep it pretty simple, and just try to focus on getting the photo that will become your favorite and that will make you smile for years to come. If that sounds like fun, call or email and let's get together for some smiles.
