Collaborating and creating photography for your stories and books
I am a photographic artist who loves people and the romance and the natural beauty which surrounds me. My photography is my gift to you. I really enjoy providing beautiful imagery and I also listen to your excitement and ideas about your special celebration, your portraits and the stories you want to create. For a photograph is like a tapestry which calls forth the memories of the one special moment in time when it was created.
I honor the wonderful opportunities to capture your unfolding story through photography. As well, taking families out into the beauty of nature is a wonderful way to have everyone relax and capture the loving essence which is what family is all about, and if their pets are included, all the more fun. For me, it really is about the unfolding story, whether I'm creating storytelling portraits, the culinary artistry of chefs, artists with special gifts to share, special events , magazine features and photographic essays along with 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?
