Capture Life Portraits



Welcome Friends

It is my deepest wish that you will look back at your photos with great fondness and re-live the joy and happiness you felt on your day.









I love the way a beautifully posed portrait looks.  They are Classic and have stood the test of time.  It is equally important to have dependable tried and true "smile and laugh and look at the camera", photos as well as artistic composure.  As your photographer I believe it is important to know how to position you in a way that looks both natural and flattering.


Emotion is what can give an image value. A groom seeing his bride for the first time, a giggle from a child when Daddy says something silly; capturing that emotion is my passion.  All the laughs, cries, smiles that bring you back to that very moment when you look back at your photo are priceless.


Why do anything if it isn't fun??? I'm officially giving you permission to quit your non fun jobs! (maybe don't do that.) I am someone who LOVES to laugh! Making you feel excited about your photo session is really important to me because I want you to have a great time! If you are anything like me, you are excited and nervous to get in front of a camera. If there are any concerns about your session please feel free to express them to me. I have style guides and tips to give you to make sure you are all looking your best for your session. I want you to feel taken care of, all you have to worry about it having fun!

I can't wait to meet you and hope to talk soon!
