I have been photographing for 15 years capturing, many different events, people and things. I started my Photography business in the Spring of 2009. My photography service is based on my passion and the belief that my customers' needs are of the utmost importance when it comes to capturing moments in their lives. I am committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals. My photography website is called "Capturing the Moments" because, I love sharing time with people who have a love for art, nature, family and entertainment.
The excitement of the capture and the creation of a memorable moment in time is the thrill and the blessing that photography brings. Within those moments are opportunities for thought, remembrances of places, smells, feelings and more. Relying on the sight of my eyes through a small lens, finding that special moment that is captured for a lifetime, has always been my passion. As a photographer, I seek those things, places or people that tell a story. With experience, I enjoy seeing the vast amount of possibilities in the world of photography." Capturing images and memories is a passion for me, not a job! And my philosophy and thought, Cameras don't take pictures, Photographers do. Cameras are just another artist's tool. The single most important component of a camera is the "person" behind it.
When it comes to actually interacting with my subject or talent, I am all "heart". I make my subjects feel relaxed and comfortable on set, I give them lots of encouraging compliments, and tell them how excited I am to work with them. If it’s a model or actress, then I’ll compliment them on their work, let them know that I’m familiar with them, and thank them for coming. A lot of people mostly women, walk onto the set and they’re anxious or intimidated, so I start by telling them exactly what I have in mind for the shoot that day. I want them to know me like a friend. My number one goal is to convey to the people that I'm photographing that I sincerely care about them. I want to photograph you so that you look like no one has ever seen you before. That sentiment comes from me and my heart. I always try to make a personal connection with everyone that I work with. I would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best photography service. So give me a call when you're ready for your moment to be captured!
In addition to my work as a Photographer, I've been work in the TV/Film Industry since 2012, thanks to Atlanta, as a Background Actor (Extra), Stand-In for Actresses and as Talent for Commercial work. I have had a Background Roles as "Photographer" on many Television shows filmed here in the Atlanta Metro area.
On a personal note, I am divorced, so currently Single and hoping to blessed to be married again and start a family. I am also and in the process of adopting a child, a little girl and looking forward to doing Mommy and Me Things and hoping she'll like taking pictures too as I have a little camera for her! I also love pets, and looking forward to being a Pet Mama again after my dog of 14 years passed away in 2018. I have a creative spirit and energy and love going out with my camera capturing images on beautiful days, especially going to a park, and the Atlanta Beltline which I LOVE, as it gives me a creative high, as it's there I'm in my element and mode with my camera. I enjoy traveling and hoping to that again and get back to planning and visiting places once this Covid is gone or at the very least under control! I'm a health and wellness conscience person and always enjoy reading and absorbing information on anything that's a wellness orientation. Last, but never least, I'm spiritual and firmly believe in faith and prayer in everything and that it plays a major role in our day to day lives. After all, it has God that has shown favor upon me in the flourishing of my Photography business and got to where I am now. If you stay FOCUSED, as well as having compassion and God in your heart, everything and anything is possible....
As always, Stay Focus...
