About Me

It’s funny how sometimes other people see something in you that you have no idea is even there. Someone saw in me a hidden talent, an eye for creating great moments, and a passion for capturing amazing life lasting images… and I never even dreamed it was possible !

 

Many Years ago I was working in the printing industry running a printing press…..

I had a 35mm film camera and liked to photograph cars. One of the guys I worked with asked me to photograph his daughter’s wedding. Of course I said NO !!!

Are you kidding? Really? I knew nothing about wedding photography and had no interest in screwing up some girl’s wedding pictures. For two months he kept asking me and bugging me until I finally said OK, but only if she approves, and there is NO Guarantee whatsoever that this is going to turn out. Well I don’t know about you, but that would be a “red flag” and your response should be RUN !!

Well, I shot that first wedding over 18 years ago and amazed them, and quite honestly, myself too…

I remember being so scared I could hardly hold onto the camera LOL !!

Next thing I knew I was getting calls from her friends, and here we are… hundreds of weddings later, many awards, and a rapidly growing and well established Commercial, Corporate, and Event Photography business… I’m having a great time creating images and making the experience for clients better than they ever imagined.

Outside of Photography I have two great kids… my daughter Taylor just got married on June 7th 2014, Yah :):) Good for you Taylor !! And  Mitch who is an amazing guitar player ! I love to watch him and am officially his groupie LOL !  He plays at Church regularily as well as a couple of local blues venues. It’s like living with Eric Clapton or Stevie Rae Vaughan haha I LOVE it ! I am so proud of My kids !

I LOVE to vacation, go to the beach, Mexico, California, and travel in general. I am so blessed with many  friends in so  many awesome places and it always gives me an excuse to visit haha ! I also am a car buff and love muscle cars and exotic cars, ya Harley’s too icon smile About Me Music is a big part of my life and I enjoy a very wide range of music, I always try to catch live acts. Fitness for me is a LIFESTYLE and not an idea…I work out literally every day and feel like I am 20, energy to burn I tell ya, only my birth certificate would indicate otherwise LOL ! I absolutely LOVE LIFE, love to laugh, and believe that all things work together for good !
