I am a lucky husband to my beautiful wife Lauren and a proud father to my two perfect little girls. When I'm not behind the camera lens, I can usually be found in the kitchen cooking elaborate meals at home, playing with my daughters, tending to my many, many house plants (60+ and counting!), or at my job as an intensive care unit nurse. But mostly, I'm just a dad stumbling through parenthood one day at a time.
I'd like to take a moment to describe how I work with my clients during the shoot as well as my shooting and editing style. My approach to a portrait session is casual, organic, and stress-free. Clients often voice their concerns to me that they don't know what to do while being photographed. This is exactly why I'm there! I offer gentle coaching on posing basics and will guide you throughout our entire session. Absolutely no modeling experience is necessary! My goal is to make you feel comfortable and beautiful while having fun.
My photography style emphasizes the incredible landscape I am lucky to call my home in the state of Arizona. I have invested many, many hours scouting the Phoenix valley and beyond for locations that provide breathtaking natural backdrops for your session. My editing style complements the warm, vibrant colors of the desert and often incorporates our dramatic sunrises or sunsets. Please take a look around my gallery for examples!
It's important to note that I do not strive for perfection. I believe that the BEST images come from the "in-between" moments that are organic rather than forced or coaxed on command. I'm talking about those little moments that can't really be described or felt unless you were there. Those fleeting, precious moments of genuine connection. This is what I aim to capture and preserve for you to keep for a lifetime.
I look forward to working with you soon and thank you for your interest. Please feel free to reach out with any questions!
