This gorgeous girl has been my photo assistant for about 4 years. I can’t believe that she is old enough to graduate. The first time I took her photos she was about 5 and I did not really know what I was doing. I have photographed her almost every year since then and I am […]

  I’ve known this charming “old soul” since he was about 8. Benson is truly one of the best young men that I have had the pleasure to know.   He is kind and thoughtful, and very very witty! He is always positive and makes the person he is with feel like they are the […]

  The moments in our lives between the moments are where life really lies.  The looks, the touch the smiles, the thoughts that otherwise would be missed.  I love seeing beyond the photo and what lies there.  Emotions of all kinds appear there,  not just the stale “look at me and smile”  moments.    You […]
