I love to create in a lot of different ways. It can be a character in a video game or a personalized crocheted blanket. Making that perfect frosting swirl on top of a cupcake is extremely satisfying. The little details in things you create yourself makes them personal and meaningful.
My talents lie behind the scenes and making sure Linda has everything she needs for the session and the studio. My hope is to connect with you and your family during our session by seeing to your needs, and by interacting and assisting with your children. I am extremely good with details and really help Linda stay on track! (Linda agrees!)
I hold an associates degree in accounting and am recently married! Looking forward to what the future holds and to seeing you during our sessions together.
My passion for photography stemmed from my freshman year of high school at Aurora Central Catholic when I took a photography 1 class and my eyes were opened to this beautiful form of art. Since then, my passion has grown immensely, and I have defined myself as an artist. I try to tell a story and provoke emotion in each of my photos. This being said, my favorite things to photograph are people; to me, portraits effortlessly resemble feelings and a particular mood.
