I am captivated by people and the energy they exude... The human spirit fascinates me, and I am intrigued with what makes people who they are.  That is why I am a fine art photographer.  I believe a fine art portrait captures the true essence of a person to allow the world a glimpse into their being.  There is a moment during every session that people open up and reveal who they are.  I am there to capture that moment.  And with my passion for art and love for photography, the image I capture will be transformed into a fine art portrait, an image people cannot take their eyes off.  Look into their eyes and the light that reflects from inside; who do you see?
