I am a self taught photographer and I have been working with digital photography for over 5 years. I still remember the first time I decided to create long lasting images. My first subject, a Northern Mockingbird. That was over 13 years ago. The best part of being a photographer is creating art by preserving the special moments in people’s lives. Sometimes it is simply the love that you feel for your family, or that your little ones are growing up so fast and you want to capture that moment in time. And of course, that wedding you want to remember for the rest of your life. What started out as a hobby has grown into a lifelong love affair with photography. I am a romantic at heart and it's a privilege to be the one to capture the special day when two peoples’ lives become entwined forever or that family portrait that will be the centerpiece of any wall.
