After many years of avoiding the camera, 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 I finally let it all go and became his model. My experience was amazing and I couldn’t believe how beautiful the images are; it was at that moment I realized I was seeing myself through his eyes and to him I am beautiful. The light bulb went on and I now understand why my clients fall in love with their images, they are seeing themselves as I see them. We are a legacy to our children & grandchildren and we need to leave them the gift of beautiful photographs.
This is my story, now it’s your turn. Let’s share your adventure behind the lens of my camera. My desire is for you, my client male or female to have an incredible experience and look forward to seeing your 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 you not to pose, but to play and enjoy your time as I guide you through your 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. I can also provide a complete studio setup in your home or desired location
Destination Weddings are popular in our area and I have been fortunate enough to photograph brides in some of Southwest Florida’s most beautiful venues.
