“I want pictures like these. The kind that can capture a moment, make it real, make it last. I need pictures that do more than reflect. I need pictures that are truth.”

~ Lisa Magnum

 

I love photography, and I enjoy connecting with people. 

 

I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to combine those and do what I love:  Capture moments for people, and share them. 

 

I have been photographing things for more than 18 years, and “capturing” moments (even without a camera) for much longer than that.   I really became enamored with it when my first child was born.  I wanted to capture every detail of her unique personality.  I love that I was able to freeze those fleeting moments and keep them.  

 

I love the feeling of sharing that with others.  That’s why I’m doing this. 

 

Because my camera is my favorite tool through which to see the people and things around me, I have had wonderful opportunities to meet people who are willing to share their stories with me and let me in their world for a few minutes.  What a privilege it is to create art for clients from authentic moments!
