I have taken pictures all of my life. I remember my first little square Brownie camera. I took pictures of everything and developed the film with my dad. I was always fascinated with seeing the picture come to life in the darkroom. I currently use a Pentax Kx and incorporate the old Pentax lenses from my dad whenever possible. I loved photographing people in all stages of life. I attempt to have the person or family forget there is a camera so I can capture the true expressions and feelings. I use natural light whenever possible and try to keep the moment intact.
