Studio Sessions
Most of my work is done in the studio under my custom-built lights. I have shot with just about every kind of light you find in today’s studios and have built a studio to achieve the look of soft daylight—which is flattering to the skin and brightens the eyes. Read More

Fashion-Style Portraiture
I also work on location shooting classic and creative portraits. Every situation is different and locations are chosen with the clients. My portfolio sessions work well for high school seniors, models and anyone looking to be creative and have fun. Read More

Whether you love being photographed or are extremely anxious about it you will probably enjoy the session more than you expect. Some people spend a half a day with me while others are in and out in an hour. You set the pace while I work hard to ensure you leave with what will likely be the best photos you’ve ever had.

Each session starts with me examining how the light hits your face and determining your best angles. We’ll experiment with different backgrounds. We’ll get into a rhythm stopping periodically to review the photos on the computer. You will see what is working, gain confidence and will start to “own it”. That’s when the fun starts.
