Thank you for taking the time to browse my site. I am a Fine Arts graduate from Florida State University, a lucky wife and a smitten mom. I love to cook, and in the southern tradition, that is how I “love” on people. I live in South Tampa, and am actually a Florida Native. I believe in living each moment as it comes, in all of it’s real life glory. There are special moments in life that can and should be captured. Annie Leibovitz once said, “A thing you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.” I may not be Annie Leibovitz, but I do feel the same way about my clients, many of whom are friends or quickly become friends. It’s a privilege watching their children grow and change.
We live in an age where everyone can use their phones and social media to share pictures. Digital media abounds, but I’m always taken with photographs that are works of art in themselves. That art aspect is where a photographer’s talent and passion shine through, creating absolute magic out of a single moment. I have spent countless hours in darkrooms, developing film and watching the magic of a photograph unfold. Though the time for manual film development has mostly disappeared in this digital age, the same kind of awe those first darkroom images inspired can still be produced by a truly gifted photographer’s work. I don’t claim to be a master photographer, but I strive to create photographs that are “beautiful.”
Many photographers focus on a specialized type of photography. They are “wedding photographers” or “newborn photographers.” I love all types of photography. I want to document the special moments in your life, whether at your wedding or the birth of your first child, but I also want to be there for the ordinary moments. Sometimes you just need an updated photo of your family on the wall. I focus on the art of my craft, and believe that if I take a beautiful photo, then that beauty will flow into everything around it.
