When I was asked to describe my “Why,” I did some soul searching.
Encouraging people, and blessing others, is my whole life passion. In my role as a professional photographer, encouraging an individual during their portrait session and blessing the work of worthy organizations, is the answer to my “Why.”
During a portrait session, when a client is nervous, self conscious about how they look, or thinks everything has to be perfect, genuine compliments with eye contact can help them relax and begin to see themselves as others do. It’s wonderful to see their body posture and expressions change as they begin to enjoy our time together.
During a family portrait session, when the kids run a muck, the parents can feel embarrassed. With a love and life-long experience with kiddos, I encourage the parents to let me take care of the session. They can sit back and relax. Their kids “enthusiasm” is common and can be incorporated into the final images. I see the parents’ “Awww, thanks” moment.
It can be when be when a charitable organization asks me to capture images for their event, or make a donation to their silent auction.
Creating photo images is what I do for a living. It is also what I do to bless those around me.
I am a Southern California based Portrait, Commercial and Fine Art Photographer who sees the world a bit differently.
