Hey! I know I'm supposed to write some witty and engaging personal details, like how I love lattes and yoga and long hikes in the mountains with my kooky Pomeranian named Ralph. Well, I drink my coffee black, I have zero flexibility, long hikes are for when your car breaks down, and I'm allergic to dogs. But, I do love being creative. I enjoy helping people look their best and feel their best. Life is too short to get crappy pictures and have a lousy time while doing it. A photo session should be fun, creative, and enjoyable. It should feel like it breezed right by, whether it was a short headshot session or senior portrait session with multiple locations. When you feel good and are having fun, it shows up in your photos. That's what I do...I mix a little fun with a whole lotta skill in order to craft extraordinary images. Let me create something extraordinary for you and let's have fun while we do it. :)
And, yes, that is a selfie with a fisheye lens and a ringflash. #bedifferent
