When I have the time and a willing family member, I get to play with location and light. Thanks, Hailee!
Scott and I love Desert Botanical Garden (DBG). We joined as members when we visited on one of our first dates, we got married there last July, and we love to attend events and bring guests from out of town to see it. So of course I said yes to shooting for them.
We went out last Saturday with my lovely niece, Jordan, for what was a gorgeous morning of sunshine and the butterfly exhibit opening. Thank you to DBG, Jordan and the other “models” who helped us out!
Thanks to Insight, I had the opportunity to photograph Smash Mouth at a big corporate event. And when they called the ladies on stage, of course I went with my camera!

I take shooting for clients very seriously, but that doesn’t mean the shoot has to be dull. The best way to keep getting great images and keep everyone lively during a long studio day is to have fun. From figuring out posing for everyone to finding wardrobe props in the studio, being silly is also serious business!
Thank you Four Peaks and staff for the opportunity to work with you. :)
I’m so glad to be back in Phoenix, my adopted home, and back volunteering at Arizona Humane Society. My first day: photographing a new volunteer class, of course!
It was also a big adoption event day and everyone was really busy, but we did get to meet a few new friends including Fredo, the rat.
As much as I love photographing people, I’ll admit to being somewhat selective about which weddings I photograph. This is usually one of the most important days in a couple’s lives and I want to be sure that ten or twenty years down the line, they’ll look back at their photos and still love the way they bring them back to this day. I think that requires a personal connection between the couple and the photographer at least on some level - you just have to click. And so when a good friend says he’s getting married, well, it wouldn’t even occur to me to say no to these guys.
I was so thrilled to be a small part of this really perfect day with two amazing people.
Welcome to my new site!
I am excited to share my passion for photography and art on my new website, Litróf Pictures. To get started, you might be wondering what in the world “litróf” is.
Litróf is the Icelandic word for spectrum. A few years ago I created a magazine with this title that was intended to study and discuss the creative process in many fields of art, and this word seems to me to encompass that mission. While the magazine is currently on indefinite hold, I still believe in studying the creative process and many fields of art, and I hope that my continual pursuit of creating authentic images benefits from that passion.
