I love hearing the excitement in a parent’s voice when they see their child’s images. When you hear mom with the gasp and awwww’s and see the tears in dad’s eyes. That’s the best feeling ever. I love giving them images that they will proudly display on their walls and bring value to their homes. There is nothing more valuable than our families.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many children and family portraits. I really like laughter and work hard at getting everyone laughing. Once you get dad laughing you are in good shape. Once dad is relaxed then everyone relaxes. I love the interaction with kids and their parents. I do this in studio and on location. I never liked the stiff pose were everyone looks uncomfortable. I have also completed many event shoots such as birthdays, weddings and retirement parties.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I have been featured in Texas Farm Bureau magazine twice. I have received around 44 awards on ViewBug. My images have been featured on the weather.
