This is one of my favorite photos of the year, made possible only by the amazing natural beauty of this young lady.
Custom Fine Art Children's Portrait Photographer in Ann Arbor, Michigan
I begged my grandmother for a camera at the age of four; since then, I've never been without a camera!
I shoot mostly young people-- children and teenagers. I try to show their spirit and energy with honesty and sensitivity and to capture some of the gestures, subtleties, and nuances that define who they are. I try to spend enough time for kids to become comfortable with me, and me with them. Nearly always, the kids I shoot are aware of the camera, but are not posing for it.
I shoot custom lifestyle portraiture in a style that is simple and honest-- natural expressions and natural poses-- in an environment that is casual, relaxed, and fun. I have a studio, but prefer to shoot using natural light in settings where children will be most comfortable and free to be themselves. I hope to capture each child's true spirit and personality along with all of the gestures, nuances, and fleeting moments that define who that child really is.
My work has been published and exhibited. I am working-- very slowly-- on a book.
