“I love photographing children, families, creating business portraits and pageant portraits. I just love to have fun with people when working. It makes all the difference. Natural light is beautiful and I love using it. I also get very creative with off camera flash strobe light which I use in my studio or at your location. I keep posing to a minimum, and strive to capture a real and beautiful moment in time with soft natural light. When I do help with posing we keep it natural and loose.
I’m also very fortunate to have the finest state-of-the-art professional photography gear and digital imaging software available that allow me to capture the finest images ….. even in very low light! I have a wonderful wife, Laurel, who helps me in the business and two almost grown children, three brothers, nieces and nephews. Thank God everyone is healthy and both my parents are still around. I am fortunate to have been with my wife for over 20 years, and she is a huge help to me in my photography, painting, and life in general.
I’m one of those rare natives of suburban DC, and a graduate of the University of Maryland. My great grandfather was a judge, my grandfather was an attorney, my father is an attorney and I’m an artist/photographer/guitarist/computer programmer. Go figure! My favorite hobby is playing guitar. I love finger picking an acoustic guitar!I used to play professionally around town for years and still teach a little bit. That pretty much sums it up….. I could go on forever but I wont bore you anymore 🙂 My measure of success is your satisfaction and recommendation!
