I offer a modern style of photography that combines the best of two distinctly different traditions. It blends the candid nature of photojournalism with the preparedness of studio portraiture. I achieve ‘a day in the life’ look with an editorial quality. I create portraits for people that are uniquely designed to portray you or your family's personality and style. Sessions are held outdoors in urban cityscapes, wooded parks, gardens, my home or yours. My style is classic and timeless. I work to make sure your portraits are special and exactly the way you want them. Your session can be designed just for you or for your immediate family. It can even include extended family, such as grandparents, their children and their families.

Low Income Families
I don't have many pictures of my oldest kids, let alone professional portraits. I could not afford a camera or to pay anyone. These are moments in time that I can never get back. If I can help another family get to have pictures to look back on, it makes my job even more special. If your family is struggling financially and living below the poverty line, please shoot me a message so we can talk about your situation and put together a low cost package to suit your needs. If you and your family are living in a homeless shelter or emergency housing, your session will be 100% free.
Once a year I hold a "school picture" day for families who can not afford to get their children's pictures done through the school. These sessions usually take place late October and are done by RSVPing a time slot. You get a digital copy sent to your email as well as 1 8x10 print to frame for your home. These sessions are 100% free. Next date TBA!
Lung Cancer Patients, Survivors, and Caregivers
The lung cancer community is HUGE part of my daily life. I am an advocate and activist. Lung cancer is a disease that can affect anyone, anytime. Lung cancer is by far the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. If you have Lung cancer or know someone who does and is in need of a photos (individual, family, or couples), Please send me a message and I will set up a shoot for you free of charge based on availability.. In some cases I can even come to the hospital, home, or hospice.
Before my father passed, I documented his cancer and hospice journey. I wasn't sure if this was the "normal" thing to do. But for me, as an artist and photographer is just felt like the right thing to do. After some time and healing, I shared these images online with my friends and family. The outpouring of love and support was just amazing. People told me that they wish they would have had a chance to do the same thing. I would love a chance to help some families through this journey. Please speak to your family about wanting to have a session done during this sensitive time. If there is one family member who is against the photography, I say don't do it. Don't make this a wedge between people. This is also a free service based on availability.
