I grew up among artists. My mom worked at museums all her adult life, she drew and painted, my sister made black and white photographs and my dad wrote poetry. I write, myself. But I never got the nerve to take portraits until recently, when I watched another photographer work with live models. He did it with such ease and created such a trusting relationship. I wanted to do this, too. I realize I had wanted to make pictures for a long time, and now, with my own equipment, I am! I do events both formal and every day, parties or informal sittings at home or outside, at a park or on a swing set. I'll help you find the best environment to set a moment into lasting memory.
