I do not do photography. I am a photographer.
I get up each day looking forward to my work.
I serve people. I serve people by making great images for them, and of them.
I love weddings, seeing two people start their lives together, and celebrating with friends and family.
I love photographing families, and showing the connections that only families share.
I love photographing babies, especially newborns, and seeing them in photographs for their first ever year in this world.
I love children, and capturing the wonder in their eyes as they discover new things.
I love making super senior portraits, and showing the world these great people called teenagers!
I love what I do.
But what does that mean? What is photography anyway?
Photography is capturing light. It is seeing the light as it plays across your subject, whether that is a person at play, a tree in the forest, or the water at the sea's edge.
Photography is recording that moment when the light is just so, and it will never be exactly like that again.
It's a split second, or a succession of seconds, when everything comes together to make a great image of a sunset, a flowing stream, or a moment of your child's life that will be gone forever if not caught in the camera.
Photography is recording snippets of time that tell a story to those that will come later.
Can I tell your story?
Who am I?
