I am a natural light photographer specializing in Children & Pets.
Life as a children’s photographer began after I had my own children. I was never without a camera, trying to capture every detail of their lives. I experimented a lot and wanted to improve my results.
I went back to school to study photography. My love of black & white photography was born here. I processed and printed all my own work and gravitated to the use of natural light only.
I love working with children because of their spontaneity. I love their eyes, smiles, and innocence. I love that when they've had enough you know it. My art is to capture all this so you will remember this moment in your child's life forever.
Nothing is more beautiful than a child photographed in natural light. With over 20 years of photographing children, and my extensive film background, working with the light is second nature. The inspiration for my images comes from the particular child I am working with.
I started photographing pets when my clients asked if I would photograph their "other babies". I love animals so how could I resist? I photograph them in much the same style as I do children....in natural light. The results are amazing pet portraits!
I love what I do. I love watching the children I work with grow up. I thank all my wonderful clients who have allowed me to be a small part of their lives.
