On this page you will find pictures of nature and landscapes, families, babies, kids, portraits, pets and whatever did not fit into the wedding category. My absolute favorite though is to photograph people. Not the easiest subject, but for sure the most rewarding one. I pride myself on the photos that look as stunning as you do.

I believe that beautiful photos are made from great light, great locations and enjoying the moment. That is why I take a more casual approach to portraiture. I won’t ask you or your family to smile or say cheese at my sessions. Instead, I will chat with you, ask you questions and be silly, if necessary, in order to elicit natural smiles and expressions and capture a real moment in time. I will place you in the best light and guide you to look your best. We will laugh together and have a great time. This is where the magic happens and a great photograph is made.
