I believe nothing is more important than capturing the unique personality, character and soul of every individual person (or pet) that I photograph. I love learning about my subjects and spending time with them. I love watching little ones play and animals frolic through the yard. I enjoy the serenity of an elderly couple holding hands in silence and the smiles when people are doing exactly what they love to do. These are the moments I strive to capture, so that moment is frozen in time forever.
When taking portraits, it is so important to not just capture a pose and a smile, but to capture the moment so that it may be cherished forever. "We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone".
Every single person has a vision of what kind of images they want to capture. I try to not only capture all of those, but also to capture the unexpected. The candid shots that were so unexpected, yet are so completely perfect. The giggles, laughs, shots when they aren't looking directly at the camera...these are the moments that fill my heart and soul with happiness.
