A life in pictures

My mother introduced me to photography when I was born. While still in the hospital she began documenting my life with pictures and continued to do so until I was old enough to take my own photographs. I look back at some of those images from my first camera, a Kodak Disc Camera (circa 1982), and marvel at the creativity. Maybe that's why I don't hesitate to give my son a camera and let him shoot randomly whatever catches his eye.

We all document our lives in photos and digital technology has only allowed this medium to become more creative and accessible. I enjoy photographing people and specialize in children and family photography.  I also provide reasonable photography and planning packages for weddings, parties and events.
