Welcome to my Portrait, Newborn and Family Photography Album.

I absolutely love to photograph families and their children and newborns. Children remind us of what's most important in life!

I strive to capture the kind if images that hold emotion and evoke memories ... Often children will dictate what kind of experience our session will be. I like to have families brainstorm thoughts they have about their families and I will ask them put that into words - it doesn't even need to be cohesive sentences. It can be a list or phrase like "the curls in his hair","her smile","his little fingers"... the little things that you love about your children that can be deeply personal.

I have a studio for shooting but often suggest we shoot in the client's home or outdoors - unless one is looking for a more formal looking portrait. It is my belief that children are most real, pure and honest in environments that they are familiar with... and thus the ability to capture children in their most authentic state is best achieved by doing this.


After the shoot, I will provide you with your own private web page that will look very similar to this one, containing images from the shoot. You will have the option to order prints directly from this website and have the photographs delivered to your door. I do however suggest that you consider going through me directly if you are looking to have images 8x10 or larger printed. I will prepare the images for printing large and will go over the image with greater detail.

I can also put together a book - yes a real book - with many options,including putting together images from your personal collection. Please inquire about pricing.

Playing Cards, Postcards, buttons, etc.. are also available.

I am a fine art photographer, artist and sculptor. I specialize in creating beautiful and memorable photographs. I love working with people and children in particular. My style ranges from fine art,portraits, couples, children, pets, nature, photojournalism, studio, on location, special events such as weddings, birthdays, parties,graduations.

I consider it an honor to photograph people. I can think of no other service more lasting, special and sacred, than capturing the people and moments in our lives. Photographs can and do, often outlive us. Photographs provide us an opportunity to remember the special moments,people and places in our lives.

Thank You
