After many years of not wanting my photo taken, I realized if I wanted to be excited and to feel what clients feel then I needed to be placed in front of the camera. I am extremely fortunate to have a son who is also a photographer and I asked him to help me have a photographic experience. I have struggled for years with self loathing and body image issues, but on this day I let it all go and became his model. My experience was amazing and I could not believe how beautiful the images were and it was then I realized, I was seeing myself through is eyes and to him I am beautiful. The light bulb went on and I realized this is why my clients fall in love with their images, they are seeing themselves as I see them. We are a legacy to our children and we need to leave them this legacy whether you are male or female.
This is my story, now it’s your turn to share your story behind the lens of my camera. My desire is for my clients to have an incredible experience and look forward to seeing their images. Clients are rarely photographed in a studio with backdrops, As a Lifestyle photographer I encourage clients not to pose, but to play and enjoy their time as I guide them through their experience. This philosophy inspires not only incredible images, but happy and relaxed clients.
Living in South West Florida (Fort Myers area) we are fortunate to have natures backdrop in our back yards whether it’s the beach, park or one of our many historic landmarks or our downtown River District area. Perfection for your portraits.
I also offer traditional studio sessions with multiple backdrops, and professional lighting if you prefer.
Destination Weddings are popular in our area and I have been fortunate enough to photograph brides in some of South West Florida’s most beautiful beaches.
I am also an event photographer for radio stations 94.5 “The Arrow” and TWANG 106.7 and have been used as a fill-in photographer for iHeart Radio in Fort Myers Florida and cover many local and out national acts such as: STYX, REO, Willie Nelson, Johnny Winter, Vanilla Ice, Darius Rucker, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, Kid Rock, and Brian Howe former lead singer of Bad Company, and many more.
