Who I am ….REALLY!
I’m a Cancerian, and the moon really does affect me

The perfect photograph doesn’t exist, I am constantly on the hunt for the perfect “moment”, I will place you in the light and YOU do the rest!
Who are your favorite photographers?
Believe it or not….YOU! YES, my clients are my favorite photographers! I say this because I am not able to do what I do to create these pieces for my clients if it wasn’t for the trust and confidence my clients place in me. Team work, and my determination to earn your trust.
No really as for photographers, I have to say that painters whom painted with light, are my all time favorite! In my eyes they were the very first photographers of all time.
The term comes from The Greek word phos, photos – light and graphos – writing. The word photography means writing with light but most photographers claim they are painting with light!
