The phrase, "what kind of photographer are you" is something I hear all the time. I don't know why people have it in their heads that you are either a wedding photographer, specialize in newborn & babies, only do families or seniors, or something else. I will photograph most anything, as long as we can get creative. Yes, for many years i played it "safe" and did the usual standard poses, exact lighting, etc. There are a few reasons why I don't do that type of photography anymore. First and foremost is that I love what I do and I very much dislike repetition.

With so many people out there doing the "I only do this" type of work, it just all runs together and I don't find it challenging in any way. I need to be challenged. Let's do something creative, something different, something that you will be proud of to show your friends and family and not have to worry about hearing "oh I like that, my friend has one just like it."

IF my clients are going to spend money with me, then they deserve to get the very best that I have to offer. Over the past several years I have enjoyed the luxury of having clents that just say "I've seen your work, do whatever you think will look good." Now that's my kind of client! 

Of course there are people out there that for a variety of reasons only do one or two types of photography. That's their choice and it's usually based upon experience, abilities or equipment. As for me, I want to photograph it all and I have been blessed with the ability, experience and equipment to do it. God have been VERY good to me and my family. Everything in this world is worthy of a photograph in the right setting or circumstances. That's why when you walk into our studio, you will see examples of a a lot of different types of images, finishes and print sizes. You will see a lot of different people, places, events, animals, sports, landscapes, musicians (I photograph a LOT of musicians) and all kinds of other, just stuff. ~ This is the world I live in!
