I am a people photographer, working and living in the Ottawa, Illinois. My goal is to capture images of people that are unique and timeless. But most importantly, I create images that reflect the individual’s personality and spirit. To accomplish this, I promote a relationship that allows for mutual trust. Getting to know a person in front of my lens brings forth the nuances that make the photograph come alive. And when my clients view their photographs with a smile that says, “Hey, I recognize you!”  then I know I have done my job.
