Average rating of 4.9 out of 5 based on 42 reviews.

I have loved capturing the most important moments of my life since I was a high schooler. I have stood atop the World Trade Center, in the middle of the Big Cypress Swamp and in the Red Rock Canyon with cameras in my hand. I studied photography when the darkroom took most of my time. Now I spend my time perfecting images in the glow of a Mac bigger than any tv my family had before 2007. The technology changes but the humanity and the personification of photography remains the art behind the lens.

I love getting into the session. Its a zen like experience for me. I try to give 100% of myself and to inspire the subject to do the same.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I am located in St Petersburg, Florida. I photograph people and places around all the Tampa Bay Area and specialize in professional headshots, family portraits and wedding photography.

My style is gently directed photojournalist. I try to create a balance between the carefree and the carefully posed.
Everybody has a unique personality. When I work with a client I strive to bring out the unexpected, humorous, or touching moments that make life special. My ultimate goal is to provide you with images you will cherish for years to come.

I started my photography career in college journalism. I won many state and national awards for my images and became the Photo Editor at Valencia Community College. Now I work in portraiture and I have a 5 Star reviews on Facebook, Yelp and Google.

A fun fact about this photographer

My family history is rooted in the Amish culture. My great, great, great grandfather came to America on the Francis & Elizabeth in 1742. They are a culture that shuns technology and now I make my living taking pictures, which their religion forbids, with a Nikon D810 which is far more technologically advanced than the ship that carried men to the moon.
