My creative focus and passion is visual story telling:  capturing and creating photos that represent the inextricable connection to all and to highlight the innate essence of God/Divine Spirit in all beings.


My style is casual yet professional in nature, welcoming and real. Nature is my biggest teacher, and I am continually surprised, amazed, and enthralled by the Earth's resiliency and beauty and what she teaches.


I've been influenced by Ansel Adams,  Annie Lebovitz,  Steve McCurry, and Robert Mapplethorpe photographers known for fashion, landscape, portraiture or black & white.  Life, and the attributes of curiosity and observation have also been huge teachers throughout my creative process.  

As a photographer, I observe and intuit ways to highlight my subject matter bringing out natural playfulness, joy, and expression. I work with you to co-create photos that are beautiful, natural, and unique.
