A little about me

Hi there,

Thanks for taking the time to explore my little corner of the internet. Photography became a passion of mine when my wife Megan and I were planning on expanding our family past our golden retriever Bode. For Christmas, I successfully negotiated a starter DSLR out of my parents with the promise of a future grandchild. Until Toby came along, Bode was the unwitting subject of most of my photography. Thankfully for Bode, I've now branched out into other areas of photography, but he's still my #1 test subject.

There are studies that show that photographs can replace our actual memories of an event. My philosophy as a photographer is to not just capture the visual moment, but the story and emotion behind it as well.
