My story     

     I have always had a fascination with photography. At a young age, I use to love to work in the the darkroom at school, for the opportunity to create photos that would capture the essence of the subjects. Whether it was a photo of a class mate, a wood shop project or a touch down of a foot ball game, that snap shot in time, lightens the heart of all who experience it. Today I have honed and developed my skills of photography allowing me to capture my 2 favourite subjects, motion and emotion. Whether it's a musical stage performance, a dance recital, theatre or the innocence of a child, it touches the heart of all those who experience it. 

As a special events photographer, I would like to share my gift with you for your special moments. Whether it's a dance recital, musical performance, a child's acting debut or your groups gathering.
