My story: I am an artist. I started my formal art education as a painting major. In the first semester of colleg, the photography professor showed the introductory art class a series of architecture photographs. The photographs were of Brutalist buildings shot on black and white medium format film. It was the furthest thing away from interesting for some. I was fascinated. It clicked right then and there that I devour photographs of all kinds - snapshots, fashion, and now, architecture? Later, I learned about Sensitometry and traditional darkroom photography from this same professor. Digital photography was new at the time and everything I learned was from my own exploration. All my experience as a student in undergraduate study was with film and film cameras. It was then that I fell in love with large format film photography but also I started experimenting with the earliest versions of Photoshop.

Ever since I was a kid I was taking photographs of my cats, my family, my friends, other people's families, other people's pets, and buildings-lots and lots of buildings. When I changed careers from being an arts administrator and curator, I knew I wanted to use my photography in a way that felt very sincere. One way was to continue working with other creatives. I work with actors for headshots, performing artists to document their pieces, and visual artists to document their exhibitions. I also found a renewed love for photographing architecture and more specifically - real estate photography. And of course, I am still keen on photographing your pets. What I have to offer is photography for the creative souls of St Louis. Whether you're a cat rescue, an interior designer, or a playwright, I've got some photography services you might need. My priorities are 1. Making photos of items and objects you are selling and promoting. 2. Capturing loved ones and moments with them. 3. Seeing a creative idea to fruition. 4. Treasuring images through framed prints, cards, and handmade photobooks. So what's next? Below are links to the kinds of sessions I offer.
