Early in my photography career, I realized that I was most drawn to creating images of people; at work, at play or simply engaged in life. After a challenging stint as a photojournalist, I turned to lifestyle and portrait photography. That change led me to commercial photography, where I have enjoyed a very good run.
My work includes creating images for ad campaigns and web content for agencies representing clients such as American Express, AT&T, Airbnb and Anheuser Busch. I have also enjoyed creating images for smaller, bespoke companies, like McKenna Farm , as well as for many couples, families and individual clients.
My images have been featured in The Washington Post, Elan' Magazine and Professional Photographer and in regional travel magazines and publications and I have been consistently rated as 'One of Washington, DC's Best Photographers'.
I consider myself blessed to be able do this work. I am honored to be a part of every moment that I capture with my camera.
