Her style is focused on raw, authentic moments, and she is passionate about working with families to capture the important details of their little one’s lives that they’ll want to remember for years to come.

Last Look: Birds

Officially it was my day off, but that came as a surprise to my 16-year-old daughter, Keirsten. As I prepared our family’s flower beds in front of our house for another season, I caught sight — and the sound — of a robin feeding her young in a small ornamental tree just above my head. I ran for my camera.

Last Look: The photographer’s view

One of the first things aspiring amateur photographers look to capture is sunsets. Mankind has admired them for countless years. For some reason, I may be one of the few veteran photojournalists who are still struck by the beauty of the onset of nightfall or the semi-darkness that immediately follows dusk.
