As a photographer, my ultimate goal is to capture the essence of the moment... to record a memory that will intensify and bring to the forefront more memories. I believe the best images are ones in which the moment happens, not created. I've seen from experience the photos that stand out are the ones that are "in the moment."
My experience includes portraits for babies, children, high school seniors, families, couples, engagement, weddings and pets. I have photographed local political figures, city and rural landscapes, flowers and fauna, baptisms and parties, industry machinery and real estate. My clients become like family as I have followed a young couple in love, from their engagement through their first child's early years and the children who come after.
Notice my pink tennis shoes? I'm a 2022 breast cancer survivor and now also an advocate for the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation. Please remember to schedule your regular mammogram (or if you suspect anything unusal with your breasts - female or male, any age!). Photo courtsey of Haley Adams.
One final thing, a portion of my photography proceeds goes to St. Jude's Cancer Research Center, Memphis TN. My nephew Ryan was a patient at the hospital for almost one year. It was truly a miracle he was admitted to St. Jude and the Drs. at St. Jude are miracle workers! Ryan has been cancer free since he was released in Dec. 2017. He continues to go to Memphis for scans every couple of months, but so far he's still cancer free!
