This image is one of my favorites of my mom and I. It was taken when I was three years old and it is framed and hanging in my office where I can enjoy it every day. Looking at this image brings back all sorts of wonderful childhood memories. This is exactly why I am a photographer. I cherish the memories that photographs like this allow me to go back to. I lost both my parents when they were still too young and the importance of these family memories has ever since then taken a whole new dimension for me.
I would love to capture memories like this for you and your family… Because your family is important to you and you want to celebrate the moments together and cherish them forever. Because you want to remember your baby’s sweet loving eyes when they look up at you in awe, and that sweet smile that tugs at your heart. Because the princess and the pirate will too soon put away their dress-up chest. Because the toothless kid will soon be going off to college. Because they grow too fast and you want to look back and remember what they looked like, who they were, and most important of all, you want to remember how that made you feel, and let it all come back to you every time you look at those portraits on your walls.
I believe that images can bring back memories we thought long forgotten. I believe in family heirlooms, and in all the hidden stories within them. I believe in displaying your family art on your walls. I believe in photography and in preserving it forever.
I believe in photographing people in an honest and truthful way, in letting real expressions and true personalities shine through. I believe in relationships and in the many intricate aspects of them.
When I look through my lens I want to see your family as it is today. The relationships, the attitudes, the connection… And then transform that moment into an everlasting memory.
With a timeless and emotional style, I strive to create photographs that are meaningful and relevant to you, and that you can treasure forever.
