Bio and Artist Statement

Photography is a love affair with life!

The extraneous details everyone wants to know

I love good food and good wine. I can get caught up in home improvement shows but I prefer to live my life seizing moments, the kind you remember on rainy days. I love photographing anything on 4 legs, but horses are my absolute favorite. Sometimes when everything else seems to fail me, I can always find solace in the eyes of a horse.

My photography is a collection of my emotions and passion for the horse and the world around me

For as long as I can remember I've had a camera in one hand and a horse in the other. I think it was a natural progression that my two biggest passions merged into a dream vocation. Every time time I pick up my camera I feel excitement bubble up inside me.  

I have been a full time professional photographer for over 15 years and I am here to capture those brilliant happy moments in time and give you the ability to hold onto them forever.

I am on a mission to bring back the printed image.

I want my clients to be able to preserve their precious memories with museum quality heirlooms that will be preserved for generations to come. I loved looking through my mother and grandmother's "photo drawer" it was filled with photos of family, friends and pets. I wouldn't want my own family treasures to be lost, so I certainly don't want my clients to end up that way.

For my fellow photographers

I love sharing my knowledge and passion through my photography workshops, from one day intensive workshops to 14 day European adventures.
