About Me


My first passion is my family, Leonette, my wife, Kristyn, my oldest daughter, and Brooklynn, my youngest. Leonette and I are high school sweethearts. Our first date was the Junior/Senior Prom my Junior year. We were married on February 14th and have been married for over 30 years. Collective “Awww, how sweet.”



Photography has been my passion for over 35 years. In February of 2011, I began a new career as an entrepreneur. People often ask me what it is about photography that excites me. It has always been easy to answer that question. “It is capturing the moment. It is a moment never to be repeated -- unless I capture it for you."



With the changes in photography given the advent of digital cameras, full-time physical portrait studio locations have given way to mobile studios. In February of 2017, I decided to not renew my lease. I have retooled my equipment to "take it with me" as I was spending 95% of my time shooting at locations rather than customers coming into my studio.
