Keep it natural.

Photo by my talented lady friend and PIC, Erin Eppenbaugh.

I'm not going to pose you. I'm just not. (Unless I have to.) I want to capture your true self. Natural you.

One-on-one portrait sessions are my favorite. I want to walk around downtown with you. I want to get coffee and find out what makes you tick. Most importantly — I want you to feel comfortable throughout the entire process.

A little about me... I'm 28, I work full time at a great ad agency. I love my family, friends and my cat, Doug. I often dream of dropping everything and moving to Oregon. I started taking photos as a creative outlet when I bought my friend's old Nikon off of her back in 2010. Since then, photography has kind of turned into my release. I do it in hopes that I catch the shot at just the right moment. I do it because it's something I enjoy.

I've always been inspired by handwriting and people who have the ability to make art out of scribbling a few words on a sheet of paper. I'm currently practicing and learning the art of calligraphy and hand lettering. It's a work in progress, but I hope to be selling prints of my work soon enough. Until then, I'm available for custom projects and envelope lettering.

Let's hang. Let's create.
