Other Interests and Freelance Work

I enjoy taking photos of everything and anything.  I challenge myself to be able to compose an image in any light at any time of day or night.  I am never done learning and love to take my camera to new places.  A few personal interests include music photography and sports photography.  There are so many types of photography out there, but I find my favorite to be those that capture people enjoying something they love and that connection or emotion to something or someone. So, if you have something that may not necessarily fit into any of those categories above, I still may be interested!  Give me a shout I'd love to chat!

Ask me about my charity work

Do you have a special non-profit or fundraising event coming up?  Are you trying to raise money or awareness for a worthy cause? Every year I agree to photograph one charity and/or community event. I have a soft spot for the children so that's usually where I like to donate my time.  If there is an event that interests me on a personal level I may reach out to you! I photograph the event, pass along the digital images to the host with printing and sharing rights, and also post to my social media accounts to help spread the word and raise awareness.  In addition, I can offer gift certificate packages toward a local silent auction or fundraising event.  Feel free to contact me for these special requests, but I am limited to how many I can do per year.  Finally, every year on Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, I accept nominations for a family who you think would enjoy a family photo session, but may not otherwise have the means to schedule one.  Maybe they have had a tough year financially, or lost a loved one, or have a medical challenge.  Based on your nominations, I select one deserving family and gift a family photo session for use in the upcoming year.  Look for my Facebook and Instagram posts in November if you have someone special in mind.
