I've been an avid photography hobbyist since I was in college where I learned both sports and "beauty" photography but when my kids were born I started to get serious about my skills. It was something I could do for myself and still spend time with the them.
My oldest daughter adores sports and has been a team playing something somewhere since she was four years old. She really does enjoy all sports and we have always rotated to something different each season.
Never one to like sitting on the bleachers, I started bringing my camera to games here in Jacksonville and just like in life, found that the best sports pictures we have of our kids are not posed or staged, but those we take while the game is happening. Those moments when they experience the joy or heartbreak of their sport. It wasn't long before other parents were asking me to take photos of their children playing sports as well.
Years later and lots and lots of practice, I get the shots of the moments you want to remember. The game, the dugout, the bench, the victory and the defeat. It's all part of their story.
In addition to Sport Photography, I also take family, child and senior portraits as well. But like my sports photos, my style leans towards casual shots of you and your family being you. I strive to capture the story of your family and often times find that the best shots are taken between the poses.
Those moments when your kids are being kids.
When you are playing with them or they are messing with each other. Those are the moments that remind you of your true selves and photos you will cherish for years to come.
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
