I was born and raised in Carroll County, Maryland. I have always had a love affair with photography from early on in life. I received my first camera from my parents when I was a teen. I am far past my teen years, but I still love photography, so I decided to take my passion and turn it into a vocation. I work side by side with my wife of almost twenty five years. I take photos for a variety of events; weddings, senior portraits, birthdays and other special celebrations. I love to be able to capture memories for families so that they have them to enjoy for years to come.
One of my favorite types of sessions I provide is for families with special needs kids. As a father of a child with Down Syndrome, I understand the difficulties of finding a photographer who is willing to take the time needed to work with these amazing individuals. All children are beautiful and should be photographed and remembered no matter what diagnosis they and their families face.
Photography has given me the opportunity to meet a variety of people in various settings and times in their lives. I love seeing the smile of a groom gazing at his bride for the first time, the look on a bride's face as she walks towards her future husband, the gleam of a parent holding their precious little one in their arms, the smiles of children who love to get their pictures taken; all the silliness they add to a session, the teens embarking on graduation; a new chapter in their lives, taking pride in their accomplishments, and even the tears as a mother holds her child for maybe the last time. All stories that I have been able to capture in photo images. I feel blessed beyond measure to be able to use my talents in this way and I would love to do the same for you! What is your story?
