"A Portrait,” by definition, should portray. It should go beyond showing just a view of a face to reveal the soul of a person. Anyone with a camera can take a picture, but it takes a special degree of sensitivity to create an image that stirs the emotion of the viewer.

My goal for everyone who sits before the camera is to bring out the inner beauty and personality each of us shares. It might mean showing the closeness of a family, the bonding between a mother and child, or the love shared by a couple.

Creating a great portrait goes far beyond using the 'right' camera, or knowing all the 'tricks' to make people smile. It requires supreme command of the craft and tools, plus a strong commitment to excellence in every detail. Quality never goes out of style.

When I create your portraits, I strive to earn your trust by working with you every step of the way. This personal approach will make your photographs unique and special."
