I was surrounded by great food and music. I recently moved to the "land of enchantment" in New Mexico and opened a studio.

Why shoot with me?
I believe an image is about a story -- a subject.
Often, I see images that are about the photographer -- You can see the skills presented in the editing and you can hardly see the subject/model. Or, maybe you see over-use of Make Up and it becomes about the MU Artist. Or, the hair stylist.
I strive to make my images about the subject. It is about you and nothing else.
I hope that the images we take will have a lasting value. Something we can view years from now and still have the same feelings as the day we captured it.
