I was surrounded by cameras since I was 14 years old, as my father was a professional photographer. By the age of 16 I had my first SLR camera. Since I grew up in the Florida Keys, my opportunities for gorgeous sunsets and pelicans, sea gulls etc was unlimited. One would think that was all I knew how to shoot if they looked at my photographs at the age of 18 – when I went to college. I attended college in West Palm Beach – just across the waterway of Palm Beach. It was on Palm Beach that I first did a serious (first-time paid photo session with a model). After that experience, I fell in love with photographing people.
My experience in wedding photography started by working for a wedding photographer in West Palm Beach – which kept me busy nearly every weekend. Ultimately I went on my own – more confident and more experienced. Weddings were my primary portrait type for approximately 22 years. I have since then limited myself on the number of weddings per year and do more individual, family, maternal, and engagement type portraiture.
