Fun Photo Session with David from Netflix Love on the Spectrum!

Adapting the photo session to the needs of the individual

Photography is much more than snapshots. To me, portrait and event photography is a work of art while I also aim to offer you a fantastic experience during the photo sessions. So, every time you look at your pictures, you smile, reflect on and re-experience that happy time.

How do you want to see yourself years from now and how do you want future generations to meet your photos? 

Specialization in the Field of Disabilities

I have worked as a licensed educational psychologist over 30 years with individuals with disabilities including intellectual disabilities, autism, and physical differences. I decided to blend his understanding of psychology with professional creative photography for individuals with a range of disabilities in producing artistic portraiture for the purpose of:

  • Telling their stories and creating personal legacies for their future generations.

  • Providing equal opportunity and access to creating personal stories and legacies that can be routine for the neurotypical population.

  • Educating the general population about a sector of the human population that tends to go unseen, is misunderstood, and underrepresented.

  • Capture the authenticity in children with disabilities that's so desired by their families.

  • Producing images that evoke positive emotions, elation, and fun memories for themselves, caregiving staff, and families through the power of photography.

  • Despite the challenges, showcasing the similarities between all people and can-do abilities instead of just differences, and challenging the dichotomous thinking of people who “can” and those who “cannot.”


Headshot photography for those with diverse needs is a different process than traditional photography and requires understanding of different profiles of the medical, cognitive, communication and motor-sensory functioning. Customizing the session to the individual is so important to help increase comfort during the photography session while producing creative images that are much more than just a communicates the authenticity of the individual. 


Family photography is a special and sacred moment. Many years go by without documenting this special connection that will survive life times and help individuals live on. It's my honor to work with families so they can stop and just enjoy their images hanging in their home, office, or any other personal space.  


I greatly enjoy capturing all the special moments of events, which last forever. Professional and artistic photos are one of the only if not only memento you will have at the conclusion of the event, as everything else will be gone. Through event photography, memories and moments can be enjoyed over and over again by you and future generations! During your event, I'm always on the lookout for that feeling and moment that many times is fleeting or others don't notice at the time. It's about awareness and timing. I take care of this so you can and fully enjoy and be present at your special event!
