I recently moved to the Anacortes, Washington area in the Pacific Northwest. Previously I lived, worked and raised my family in Northern Virginia for the past 35 years. I originally hail from the Midwest - Minnesota. But thanks to the military have traveled throughout the United States and Europe. My journey with photography began when my sons were growing up playing sports. I became very adept at anticipating the next play in baseball, and catching the swim stroke at just the right moment. Years went by and I upgraded my equipment, and learned photo editing techniques. I have a love for nature photography as well. I am in my happy place, totally energized and at peace when I capture the human expression and experience. I love photographing people… A beautiful landscape is nice, but truly comes to life and tugs at your heart strings when humans enter the scene. I don’t take my friends and clients on photo sessions. We have an experience together! Even the reluctant dads and fiancés are relaxed and smiling, having a good time! There is nothing more precious than capturing that fleeting moment, that smile, that expression, that hug, that pat on the face.
