I came to the world of photography partly by accident.
Like you, I started really getting to know myself when I was in High School. This was when I discovered photography for the first time. I started taking photos constantly—My camera and I were inseparable. My family and friends really liked what I was creating, so I decided to follow this thread to see where it would take me.
I went to the Hallmark Institute of Photography and studied literally every genre of the medium that I could, as well as how to successfully run a photography business. Photography has been my whole world, and my passion, ever since.
Why Senior Portraits?
I absolutely love giving my clients a fun, personalized, and modern approach to Senior Portraits. I’ve experienced the drag of your typical “Sit here in front of this boring backdrop and smile” school photos, so I love to offer a fresh perspective. This is a super exciting time in your life, so let’s celebrate it!
Ever since starting my own business, I’ve always known that I really loved Senior Portrait Sessions. I’m always challenging my own limits and pushing the bar to create something new and dynamic each time. No two Sessions are alike!
I love the technical side of creating eye-catching images, but I also love chatting with every Senior, learning about their lives, and hearing what they’re looking forward to as they go off into the world. I love seeing them get excited about the photos we create together, knowing that they’re enjoying an amazing opportunity to fully express themselves.
Those opportunities really are priceless in a world where you have the stress of exams, college applications, and deciding what career you want to have. Every moment to remember why YOU matter, matters.
+ I love aviation, and before I found photography I wanted to be a pilot. I even have 20 logged flight hours!
+ I’m very handy—I custom build all of the sets in my photography studio, and build computers too.
+ The lights of my life are my wife, our 3 kids, and our 2 dogs. We’re a lively bunch!
+ One of my favorite places in the world is my family’s vacation home in the White Mountains in NH.
+ I’m a huge fan of the Marvel movies. If I had to pick a favorite, it would definitely be Guardians Of The Galaxy. You can’t beat the hilarity and the soundtrack!
+ Favorite food to make AND eat? Texas BBQ, hands down.
