Beauty can be seen in all things. Seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph. ~ M.Hardy
 

Photography is my passion.
 

Seeing and capturing the beauty and emotion in a photograph is what I strive for. As a kid I discovered photography and when I attended North Texas State in Denton, I took photography and photojournalism courses and was hooked.  I continue to attend workshops and conferences, learning from and studying with, some of the best in my industry. In addition to keeping abreast of new techniques myself, I teach up and coming photographers, as well as professionals, through my studio workshops and at Collin College in Plano.
 

My style is fairly easygoing; both in my teaching methodology and shooting process. I will pose you when needed but prefer to capture real moments. I like to call it "free range posing". My emphasis is on creating a memorable experience; with images that are natural and timeless that you will love for years to come.
 

My work has been featured in several magazines and I have been honored to win many awards, all based on client feed back. A family owned and run business, I believe in giving back to our community.
 

          "Your talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back ..." 
 

And so, you will often find me out and about, giving back to my community via the non-profit organizations  both locally and Nationwide.
