Manifesto

What makes a great photographer?

 

I have always said, half of what makes a fabulous photo is a pretty nice camera and some basic knowledge plus the other half is the chemistry formed with the photographer and client.

 

Each shoot is a personal challenge to find just the right angle to accentuate your best features. I take this very seriously. You probably won't even realize as I hold the camera, my wheels are turning to change the lighting, shadows, and background.

 

Working through moments that may be challenging such as: The terrible two phase, a bad hair day, skin imperfections, a grumpy kid, a spouse that is just not into the shoot, a wiggly pet, a rain cloud, a muggy day, a big scrape on the face, a drippy nose, a constant eye closer, a woman who is sensitive to her weight, and a wardrope selection gone bad.

 

These are all things I encounter QUITE often and I am proud to say, this is when my skills come in handy. Put me up against anyone of these or a series of these unmentionables and I am, "GAME ON". I might have a few unconventional methods to get people to smile as I draw out the automated fart machine, yell, "Daddy wears stinky diapers", yodel, blow a dog whistle, chirp like a bird, or offer to smell my stinky feet.

 

A photo is a lasting image to capture a moment in time and I want to help provide you with a quality series of photos that shares with the viewer your true personality!

 

MANIFESTO

I think the best way to know someone, is to ask who they are.

 

So here's what I am made of:

 

Believe that everything happens for a reason

 

Blonde will be my forever shade

 

People that don't feel like Disney World is magical, are people that are over-rated

 

Take time to lay in the grass and watch a flock of sparrows fly by

 

I hate rude people

 

Enjoy the smell of the ocean breeze and Coppertone suntan lotion in the air

 

Wear fun hats

 

Look strangers in the eye and make them smile back

 

I admire people that own a pet. It shows compassion to another species

 

A palm tree soothes the soul

 

I love to drive fast

 

Snorkeling is my happy place

 

Use your good dishes. You're special and you deserve it each day

 

Buy yourself flowers weekly

 

Dream BIG

Chew on mint leaves

 

Look out for the underdog

 

Be a true philanthropist for all the right reasons

 

Don't lie

 

Be kind

 

I believe sportsmanship is more important than the actual sport itself

The smell of peonies actually makes me giddy inside
