I have been working as an artist all my life and have always had a camera with me. I have been photographing digitally since 1999 and love it! Portraits are my specialty and so I just love 'people photography'. I enjoy doing sessions outside and so most of my portrait work is on location.
I give free consultations to discuss your special Portrait Session, as I want to get to know my clients and I want you to absolutely LOVE your pictures!
So, feel free to email me, call me, or chat with me on Facebook! I'm very easy to contact and would love to hear from you!

I sometimes teach workshops and you can find my 'instruction' page on Facebook for schedules and also I will announce here any classes.

I recently published a book of Musician portraits with their interviews. You can find all info in my top menu.

Thanks for stopping by!
