my portfolio has what seems like a huge range but really, all my images are related in the fact that they capture the essence of things — they’re visceral.

that’s my little burst of philosophy for today.

Headshots

Yes, I do headshots!

From casual to more formal, outdoor and indoors, I have done them!

I have taken photos for people from varied jobs such as therapists, authors, nutritional counselors, life coaches, organizers, social workers, to even kids’ gym instructors…a very varied portfolio.
