Behind the lens

 

I like to think of myself as a storyteller through photography and my camera lens offers a concrete expression that will transcend time. My passion for photography came in my early teens and has allowed me to identify and navigate the subtle nuances that make each person unique. Catching them at just the right moment produces exquisite works of art that will be cherished forever. My photographs have been described as engaging, affectionate, insightful and alluring.

 

My entire life has been dominated by my passion for photography. From the minute I picked up a camera, I was captivated. I love telling the story about the relationships between individuals; capturing those special moments of joy and contentment.  Whether it’s a family portrait, a wedding, or a special event, I like to capture the “in-between” moments that are the most candid and authentic.

 

Over the years I’ve worked successfully in every kind of setting: on the beach, in parks, at historic locations, on city streets, in churches, synagogues, you name it. I can handle the special challenges of shooting outdoors or indoors, in wide-open spaces, or in crowded rooms. I’ve also been able to use my skills as a photojournalist to capture the powerful, emotional moments during the Black Lives Matters protests and the protests surrounding the Freddie Gray case. 

 

I take pride in my work and connecting with my clients on a personal level, which, in turn, allows my clients to feel comfortable enough to return and allows me to capture the many milestones they accomplish throughout their lives. I am proud and honored that many of my clients with small children return year after year for their family portraits and couples whose weddings I’ve covered turn to me to continue the tradition with their young families.

 

A few events I have covered recently are:

  • Navy Yard Shooting
  • U.S. Capitol Shooting
  • Rock & Roll Marathon
  • Various Gospel events at First Baptist Church of Glenarden, which I am a proud member of.
