When I was growing up my parents owned a small photography business. My best friends and I used to love spending a Saturday "modeling" for my Dad. I was the go-to babysitter for my younger brothers while my parents would be at a wedding. At the time, I didn't see what my Father loved about photography. It wasn't until 10 years after he packed away his camera that I got bit by the “bug”. I had always been an artist but I could never find that one medium that totally satisfied my inner need to create; until Photography. My studio resides in Downtown Port Huron, in the middle of a historic building. Currently I am in the process of renovating an old building to move our studio to Marysville, MI
I love learning everything I can about my craft and am constantly trying to soak up as much knowledge as possible. In doing so, I became a CPP (Certified Professional Photographer), and earned the Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman degrees from Professional Photographers of America. I now also enjoy judging image competitions and guest speaking across the country to fellow photographers on inspiration and creativity. I was honored when Professional Photographer Magazine asked to do feature profile on how I incorporate creativity into my everyday work. The article can be found here
My #1 goal is create images that make you feel- whether it’s through the fine art I create, silly images of my three dogs, or personal portraits of you.
