About Me

 

Mother's Day shoot-6

After many years of not wanting my photo taken, I realized if I wanted my clients to be excited and experience what they felt while being photographed, 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 assist me in having a photographic experience. For years I struggled 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 couldn’t believe how beautiful the images were; it was then I recognized, I was seeing myself through his 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 of beautiful photographs.

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 male & female to have an incredible experience and look forward to seeing their images. My customers are rarely photographed in a studio with backdrops and canned lighting, but with lovely natural lighting and God’s beautiful creation as the backdrop. 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 a  natural 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.

Also offered are the traditional studio sessions with multiple backdrops, and professional lighting if you prefer.  In my in home studio or your own home.

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 venues. 

I am an event photographer for radio stations 94.5 “The Arrow” and 93Xfm  and have been used as a fill-in photographer for Cat Country 107.1 in Fort Myers Florida. I have covered many local and national acts such as: STYX, REO, Willie Nelson, Johnny Winter, Vanilla Ice, Darius Rucker, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, Kid Rock, Heart festivals such as Fort Rock, Bacon Jam, The Coconut Festival and many more.
