Rates and Packages

 My desire is to provide you with high-quality professional photographs at an affordable cost.

How am I different from other photographers?
Unlike other photographers, I do not order prints for you. After your photo shoot I will edit the pictures and then burn them onto a CD for you to keep. These will be high-resolution images, not proofs. You will get the images and all rights to the pictures to print and distribute them in any way you please. They will not be watermarked, and I will provide you with a written release so that you will have no problem ordering prints from your favorite film developer, or to print from home. I also ask that you sign a release giving me the opportunity to use your photos in my advertising (website and print).

Pictures and Prose

About Me

About Me...

I love Jesus, first and foremost. He gives me the vision, ability and desire to capture these moments. If there is anything that you see here that you like, please give Him the credit. It's all God's handiwork...just my camera.

I love my family. I'm married with 3 boys. Yes, three boys. They are my most loud and valuable possession. They are also my most photographed subjects. Humor me, as you will see them over and over and over...

I love taking pictures. Of anything. Really. I know that my sweet husband breathed a sigh of relief when digital cameras became affordable. Now, I can take as many pictures as I want without developing and paying for the film. Genius.

I love capturing that moment...that picture that causes words to fail and all you can do is sigh, or laugh or tear-up because the picture is so true to the feeling of that moment. And it makes you remember...

I love photographing children because of their unintentional honesty and delight of the world. In outdoor settings, where children can run and laugh and play I find the most natural smiles, intense gazes and silly faces.

I love giving people the finished product, though I still feel nervous every time I hand a client the finished CD. I labor over every image. I scrutinize every detail. I can promise my heart is imprinted on every photograph. I know what it means to trust me with your family. With your memories. With your moments...and I am grateful.

I love...because He first loved me.
