Full disclosure: I didn’t go to school for photography. In college, I was more interested in the Big Picture: Philosophy. Religion. Aesthetics. My professors assigned books which hinted at something more, an eternal Beauty, an experience of being ALIVE! It didn’t take long to discover that authentic feeling of being alive wasn’t found in philosophy books. After earning a degree, I loaded my pack with watercolor supplies, a camera, a journal, a map, and headed West. I was looking for that direct experience with LIFE. I found it a few times. And fortunately, a few times I had my camera on hand. NOW… I’m incredibly blessed to witness and record those same moments of beauty and being ALIVE for my clients.

That’s what I do: Capture the moments when your life reveals itself.
