“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.

What you have caught on film is captured forever…

It remembers little things,

long after you have forgotten everything.”

– Aaron Siskind

I am a photographic artist who loves people, the romance and natural beauty which surrounds me.  My photography is my gift to you. I enjoy listening and bringing visions to life. For me, a photograph is like a living mandala, for it embraces a rich tapestry of love, joy, and beauty, which embraces the memory of that one special moment in time when it was created. Your memories continue to live and can bring you back to your beautiful experience at any time.


I honor the wonderful  opportunities to capture your unfolding story.  As well, taking people into the beauty of nature is a wonderful way to have everyone relax and capture the loving memories you will hold dear for your forever. It really is about the unfolding story, whether I'm creating  storytelling portraits, culinary artistry of chefs, artists with special gifts to share, special events, or the amazing landscape which just takes my breath away, it's all about weaving the magic of Earth's family and bounty, with the  light that is the Divine.


I look forward to hearing about the story you wish to create.

Enjoy the wonder and beauty of the Catalinas in Southern Arizona.  Could this be the place for your next portrait experience?
