Special Events!


I love being the “fly on the wall” with a camera who captures the fun of these special events! I’m always on the lookout for expressive faces, quiet or funny moments and other photo ops that tell the story of your event that others might miss.

After the Session is Over...

Good photography also means the session is just beginning of my job. Having great gear, and back-up gear, that can do the job is vital.  Then there is sorting, editing and re-touching to do and excellent computer skills are important to get the most out of the images. Why?  Because I shoot in what is known as RAW format - like a digital negative - which must be developed in the digital darkroom (computer) using specialized software - I use Lightroom and Photoshop. RAW format gives the photographer the most information to obtain the best final image. All images are individually processed by me.  Rest assured, my work is triple backed-up.



Why Prints?

  • While digital media is very popular, given its uncertain lifespan I recommend that one way or another you obtain archival-quality prints of your images.  Photographic prints really will last a lifetime (remember looking at photos of your parents’ childhood or your grandparents’ wedding?). We still have photographs from the 1840s, but we don’t always have uncorrupted versions of digital files made just a few years ago!
