Being a lover of photography since I was in grade school, I decided that after so many years that photography as a hobby was not enough for me and it was time I chased my dreams! After shooting with film for some time, I finally moved into the digital age. I have studied under a wonderful and well-respected photography instructor at a local art school that has produced many fine photographers. As a testament to his proficiency as an instructor, his students made up approximately one-third of the 73 artists chosen in the entire state for the 61st Annual All Florida Juried Competition for 2012.
In addition to being a portrait photographer, I am a fine art photographer as well. In September 2012, my work was chosen for the final jury round in the 2012 International Fine Art Photography Competition for the Grand Prix de la Découverte in Paris, France. I am proud to have received the accolades of the diverse and distinguished international panel of jurors including well-renowned photographers and museum curators for not only my portraiture work, but my fine art photography as well.
I am a big believer in shooting in natural light and enjoy capturing those special "moments in time" that happen when nobody is looking! I began by taking portraits of my friends and their children, and just about anybody who would stand in front of my camera! My photography sessions are definitely "ALL ABOUT YOU!" I strive to give my clients exactly what they want when it comes to the look of their portraits. Whether you prefer the look to be clean, crisp and natural, uniquely edited images, or a mixture of both! It is not only my goal to provide you with beautiful portraits, but to make your experience fun and memorable!
