Photographer | Storyteller | Life Enthusiast
I love people - Always have, always will. I love to hear their stories, watch them laugh, find their passions, and see them love. I will sacrifice sleep, food, and money to spend time with and invest in people. As a person, you are my priority, my personal investment.
I'm a storyteller to the core - Stories pump me up, I love ‘em! I get into every story I tell - I deliver with excessive gestures, exaggerated expressions, and dramatic imitations. I’ve spent many an hour simply allowing my overactive imagination to run free. I am passionate about your story, few things bring me greater satisfaction than a story well told.
I'm a little boy at heart - When I grow up, I want to be like my dad, I want to do cool stuff like fly planes and jump off of tall things, and I’m still fascinated by fire and things that burn. Simply put, I love to enjoy life. I love to laugh and I don’t take myself to seriously. I like to think I’m a fun person to hang out with, but I’ll let you decide that for yourself. I aim to make every session an enjoyable and chill experience - There’s just so much pressure when you’re in front of the camera! Let’s kick that idea to the curb and just have fun.
Finally, I love Jesus - I’m blown away that a perfect God could love me so much. Jesus isn’t just a part of my life, He’s the only reason I'm alive. As I learn and grow in my relationship with Him not only have I developed a love and a heart for service, but also a desire to conduct my business in a way that honors Him. He gave His life for me, all I can do is give back in return. Not only will I care about you and seek to serve you personally, I will do everything within my knowledge to provide an honorable service.
