As this site develops, I hope to be able to define who I am as a photographer. I am a work in progress. With each photo shoot, I learn something new.
One thing that will never change is my passion for photography. I love to take pictures! I enjoy looking at them even years later and remember that moment.
Freezing moments in time is what it is all about. When I first started doing portrait photography I was focusing on capturing that “perfect pose”. I have since learned that I was looking at it from the wrong angle. While there are certain images we would frame and hang on our wall for the world to see, there are immensely more moments that we want to capture and forever hide in our hearts, fond recollections of a time too quickly gone by. Special occasions shouldn’t be reserved only for the 80th birthday, Thanks Giving or retirement. Every day that we are alive, living life, breathing, loving should be a special occasion. We take our loved ones for granted. We MUST capture and keep those “In the moment” photos as well as our “perfectly posed, in our Sunday’s best, hanging on our wall” photos.
