Thanks for stopping by my site. I hope you enjoy your visit.  

Thought for the day

With today's technology, nearly anyone can take an accurately exposed photo. But those resulting images typically lack at least one critical component. Emotion.

Capturing the essence of a client's unique personality, with its intimate and sometimes complex subtleties is an art form in and of itself. In my opinion, this is the difference between taking a "snapshot", and creating an image that will have an impact for years to come.  But in order to achieve that goal, you must be comfortable with your photographer 

It is natural to be nervous during a photo shoot. The problem is that nervousness and uncertainty tend to come through in the photos . Over-emphasized smiles or guarded (read "skeptical") postures compromise the overall result leading to nothing more than your everyday, average photo.  

My approach is simple. At the end of the day, I strive to produce images that capture the essence of who you truly are, not just who you are when you are in front of a camera. As such, I take great strides to make you comfortable with me and my approach prior to a photo session.

I accomplish this by first meeting with each client "off camera" prior to the shoot, so that I can understand their vision and their needs. Then I answer any questions that the client may have about me and my philosophy. Then, I craft a unique experience that fits my client's need, without busting their budget.  

One way I accomplish this is by breaking the traditional mold photography mold. I do not require "package" purchases. You pay only for my time, and I provide you with a copy of the digital images. While you may get those images printed anywhere you prefer, I strongly suggest you purchase your photos a la carte on my site at extremely competitive prices. With a choice of 4 different Professional Labs, with over 600 photos sizes, styles, finishes and mounting options, all via a secure, online approach, I am certain that you will find a perfect combination of great quality and convenience. guaranteed!

The emotion and the intimacy of each individual's unique personality, if captured at just the right moment, distinguishes the mundane from the marquee. It is all the difference in the world in the final product. Those images that last a lifetime. Why trust them to just anyone?

Be blessed, and I hope to hear from you soon.
