SPECIALIZING IN SPIRIT ORBS, PORTRAITS, PETS AND ANIMALS, SPORTS AND ACTION, AND ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPHY
My mission is to communicate joy through my photography. My vision is a world where everyone admires the beauty in the small, everyday things. I photograph those real-life scenes that tell a story, that give you a feeling about the whole day from one picture. I love being able to capture that moment, because it will never happen again. My photos convey the beauty of the most simple things, like a flower, or a body in a motion. I love all things outdoors, and that’s where I find most of my subjects.
In the end, we’re all just a bunch of snapshots that make up one big picture called the world. Each one of those snapshots is beautiful.
I specialize in the following areas of photography:
Orbs are transparent balls of light that appear in photographs, and many people believe they are angels or celestial beings. I love taking their photos and sharing these physical manifestations of energy with others.
Taking professional photos of vacation rentals and homes for sale is an opportunity to have fun while I hone my technical skills, especially in the desert and Palm Springs area where modernist architecture abounds. If you have a home for sale or rent, professional real-estate photography will market your property more effectively.
Whether it’s a professional head shot you’ll use for business cards or a website, or a photo of the family with kids, I love to make you feel relaxed and happy while we shoot.
Since I grew up on the water, surfers were some of the first subjects I caught on film. I have since expanded to other sports and crave the challenge of taking action shots of bodies in motion.
I’ve always been an animal lover, and I enjoy capturing pets’ dignity and beauty in photographs. Memorialize the personality of your dog or can with a professional pet portrait.
If there's 'anything' or 'anyone' I really miss in this world, I would have to say it's my Mom.
My Mom was a very special person, as I'm sure most of ours were or are.
Those of you who still have your Moms, are very Blessed.
She was very talented and could have done anything with her life, but she loved her kids ( me and my older brother ), so she put all her talents aside to raise us, and to take care of a home and the two men she married during the course of her life.
To say that I was an easy child to raise would be ... well...a lie.
Anyone who knows me, knows what a basket full of fun I am.
I was a rebellious child but through the years my Mom and I went from being adversaries to the best of friends.
My Mom left her body in 2005. I've never considered her gone or dead.
I know that she's still here, just not the way I want her to be.
I was her caretaker as she was transitioning, and in order for me to care for her and follow her wishes, I had to mourn her before she even left.
I remember driving home from the gym one day, and I realized the World wasn't stopping for me and my horrible situation. Everyone around me was carrying on with their lives, and I was going through this surreal, spiritual, transformation that no one else would understand unless they were going through it themselves.
I mean when the doctors told me my Mom had cancer, and had maybe 4-6 months to a year if treatment went well, I literally slumped to the floor.
It was like someone had kicked me in the stomach.
I couldn't breathe.
I'd never felt anything so devastating.
How do you react when the person who gave you life is transitioning out of her body ? Leaving THIS world as I know it ?
But you take the information that's given and you make the best of it.
After several rounds of chemo, and actually being in remission, she announces to me one day that she's tired, and doesn't want to go through treatment anymore.
I respected her wishes.
I want to thank my Mom for all that she did for me.
If it wasn't for her, I would have never have been interested in photography.
She gave me my first point and shoot for Christmas one year and it took off from there.
My only regrets with my Mom, is that she never saw my success in my career and she won't be at my wedding.
This is one of the first images I captured with that camera.
She loved roses and had quite the garden in her backyard.
This one is called Chicago Peace.
