My most cherished childhood memories are of the many family vacations and road trips my family took together. My mother, who was always the creative one, would design beautiful scrapbooks of our times together. Every time I turned the page of one of these books a wave of warmth would fill my heart as I relived each moment.
This is where my love of photography was born.
The only thing I love as much as photography is Austin. I was born and raised here and truly believe that much of professional and personal identity has come from my feelings for this city. I have an old house in south Austin with my crazy, wonderful dog Jezebel, and can’t imagine being anywhere else. Austin is and will always be my home.
My reputation as a photographer is built on my ability to capture the moments often overlooked; a quick glance or a warm hug. I want my weddings to tell the story of you…the way you want it remembered. My clients tell me they believe my photographs are driven by my ability to relate to each of them on a personal level. I try to connect with my clients and become as involved in the process as they want me to be. This allows me to understand the memories that are most important to them.
My other passion is teaching others how to translate emotions through photography. I have been a photography instructor for seven years, trying to teach people how to inspire themselves and capture the moments most important to them. I have had artistic and commercial work featured in such publications as the New York Times, Austin Monthly, Food & Wine, Austin Monthly Home, and Tribeza magazines. I also have close ties to some of Austin’s most worthy charities and have donated artistic pieces to Safeplace, Austin Juvenile Diabetes Center, and the Alzheimer’s Association.
