When I say I want to photograph someone, what it really means is that I’d like to know them. Anyone I know I photograph.” – Annie Leibovitz
I have been a professional photographer since 1985, specializing in portraits of children of all ages and their families. I photograph newborns, babies, children, families, pets, high school seniors and business portraits and enjoy showing people at their best. I also work in editorial, event, fine art and architectural photography. Fueled by an endless curiosity about people and a desire to connect with my subjects I am especially passionate about portrait photography and strive to create a natural portrait that truly reflects the individual. I am inspired by light and the stories behind my subjects. I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America. I have been awarded “Best Family Photographer” by Cincinnati Magazine and “Best Children’s Photographer” by All About Kid’s Magazine. A native to Cincinnati, I am married to my high school crush and have two children. My mission is to create family heirloom wall portraits that make your heart smile every time you see them.
