I don’t take your picture

I read you in-between the lines

Whether it's babies, families, grandparents or high school seniors, my goal is to create heirloom art pieces.  It sounds like a kitschy, marketing term, HEIRLOOM.  Especially when you're perhaps just thinking about your holiday gift list.  I am, however slightly obsessed and I'll take that eye-roll and raise you with that 80's glamour shot you or someone you loved thought was so fantastic at one time.  

This mission is kind of my obsession and it's always with me. It is reflected in the papers and books I have my images printed on.  It is on my mind from the moment we first meet, to the first time I take your first photograph. It's buzzing around me as I cull and edit your images.

It drives me to take photographs of my teenager that she'd kill me for taking and it's the regretful suffering I have after when I do the right thing and refrain (sometimes).

Apologies in advance because I will ask you to briefly board my crazy train. My head and my heart are always thinking at least 20 years ahead.  What will be important to you when your kids are grown?

What will you love the most?  What will your grandkids love to see? Which photographs will get replaced and tucked away and which ones will stand the test of time and remain on the walls? Oh, and one of my favorite all-time questions,

"yes, but wouldn't you love to have this photograph of you with your mom?"

My objective obsession is also the best part of my job.  I people watch the heck out of you. I'm a technically skilled photographer, but that's not why you want me. You want me because I read you between the lines and capture these subtle moments unfolding. Moments that you are so close to now, they are easy to miss, but I won't let you.
