Photography allows me to capture peoples special moments in their lives. It allows me to share their story how it unfolds organically for portraiture. I love seeing clients eyes light up at their special moments of time and being apart of theirs lives forever.
As for commercial photography I love hearing the clients vision and learning what they would like or for see as an end product. I love seeing out the end result and how they use those images via web, print and social media. I get true joy from seeing it all come together and the clients excited about it.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
With family and portrait photography I like to do my best to make the family or kids laugh. I Love getting them to show emotion and just having fun as a family. I want everyone to have fun and walk away wanting to stay for a longer session. That means they enjoyed themselves and will always remember their session was fun!
With commercial clients I like to always make sure I am prepared. For food photography I have my toolbox of items to be able to help with any styling needs in a moments flash. I like to play music and keep that scene fun!

For commercial photography I have been published in Paleo Italian Cookbook by Cindy Barbeiri and also her magazine Cindy's Table. I have also had the honor of photographing for Senator John Larson numerous times.
A fun fact about this photographer
I was a rhythmic gymnast for 12 years (you know those gumby type gymnasts from Europe?). I was on the way to qualify for the 2000 olympics when I got injured and retired. I also LOVE to snowboard and hang with my pups!
