I first began creating images as a child while watching my dad shoot with his 1957 all-manual Zeiss camera. He invited me to press the shutter button during one of our national park summer trips, after which I became addicted! Much more than pictures, photography is a way of life for me.
It's so important for me to help children and families feel comfortable during their session in order to capture truly authentic images. My clients reflect on what a fun time they had, which is reflected in their images, that they and future generations will enjoy forever. I provide a light and fun experience, taking pride in naturally connecting with people and specifically understanding how children think and understand their world!
As required by California law, I have my Child Performer Services Permit (#000279212), which requires publicists, managers, acting coaches and headshot photographers who work with child actors to be fingerprinted and pass an FBI background check to screen out registered sex offenders.
When I'm not photographing, I love movies, checking out new tastes of food in my area and others, working out at the gym, traveling to new and cool places, hanging out and discovering new places with my girlfriend, and spending quality time with my parents, siblings, nieces, nephew, and great niece and nephew. I love the awesomeness of a balanced life!
