About Our Studio

A portrait, by definition, should portray. It should go beyond showing just a view of a face to reveal the soul of a person. Anyone with a camera can take a picture, but it takes a special degree of sensitivity to create an image that stirs the emotion of the viewer.

This is the goal I have for everyone who sits before my camera. To bring out the inner beauty and personality each of us shares. It might mean showing the closeness of a family, the bonding between a mother and child, the loved shred by a couple celebrating an engagement of an anniversary. if the final portrait is to be a gift, it becomes my duty to ensure the feeling the subject has for the recipient are brought out in the images.

The difference between creating a great portrait or a mediocre one goes far beyond using the "right" camera, or knowing all the "tricks" to make people smile. Rather, it requires a supreme command of the craft and tools plus a strong commitment to excellence in every detail. When I stared my business, I aspired to produce the finest photography I was capable of, without compromise, I have never regretted that decision. Quality does not go out of style. It costs less in the long run, and is always appreciated by those who know the difference.

You ask us to create your portraits because you have seen and recognized the difference. I want to earn the trust you have placed in me by working with you at every step along your portrait experience. This personal approach is what will make your photographs unique.
