I take a photojournalistic approach to my photography.  I like to do the photo shoot in comfortable, familiar settings – your home or a favorite park for example.  I plan on 2-3 hours for a relaxed and easygoing atmosphere. I like to spend a little time getting to know you and your pet before I start taking photographs. I believe that the true essence of people and pets comes through best when they are natural and relaxed.

Once upon a time, black & white images from a darkroom were my favorites.  With the advent of digital photography, I let the image dictate the processing.  This results in a combination of black & white and color images in the final gallery.
