Meet the face
behind the camera

I close my eyes and I can still see the very moment I fell in love with photography. I was in 7th grade and learning about the great Dorothea Lange. I remember gazing at the "Migrant Mother" photo and picturing the pain the mother had gone through, I wanted to capture moments in time ever since. I remember saving every penny I earned and all my birthday money and buying my first camera. It was a Nikon, except it wasn't digital. It was a nice film camera. I was 16 when I shot my first wedding. I interned at Pekin Daily Times and fell in love with journalistic photography and went on to working full time as a photographer for many years. 


Photography is more than just a mere hobby it's my passion, my livelihood. I put my entire heart and soul into capturing your memories. A photography experience with me is far more than getting prints on a paper. It's about the emotions captured, the memories created, and the way you felt during that split second in time that will never happen again... I want my clients to feel comfortable to express themselves and look forward to working with you.
