How long have you been a photographer?

I've been taking photos professionally since I completed my Bachelor of Fine Art degree in Photography and Film at Virginia Commonwealth University but I have been taking photos for as long as I can remember. Many of my most treasured childhood memories revolve around an old Polaroid camera given to me by my grandmother. The excitement of capturing a moment in a photograph – the anticipation of waiting for the images to appear on the glossy film – sparked a love of photography that would only grow with time.

Where will you take my picture?

I believe that the best images come from great story telling. I prefer to shoot on-location, rather than in a studio, in order to to best tell your story. Don't have a location in mind? I'd be happy to work with you to find the perfect location for your personality.

Can you restore my old or damaged photographs?

Yes!

Whether your images need full restoration or just a bit of rejuvenation, I would love to help you bring your treasured photographs back to their full potential.

If you have either a photograph printed on paper or a film negative, I can breathe new life into your image. In addition to a copy of your fully restored photo, you will receive your original photograph or negative unharmed and unaltered.

How much does it cost?

Sitting fees begin at $50 and will vary according to the type of portrait commissioned and any add-ons you may select. To discuss your portrait and get an estimate of cost, please contact me.

Accomplishments? Publications?

I was awarded Best In Show by juror Jeffrey Allison (of the VMFA) for the 2012 VCU Photography BFA Senior show entitled We're All Gonna Run. You can view my series Carry Me Home here.

I have also been featured in the 2012 Anderson Gallery's Juried Student Fine Arts Exhibition in Richmond, VA, in addition to being published in Fashion Fights Poverty's The Dress Responsibly Lookbook ("The Worker Issue") in September of 2010.
