An architect photographing architecture, a mother photographing children and families, a hiker photographing beautiful landscapes, and a gardener painting flowers.
I began my art career in a high school art class, painting a watercolor. That painting still hangs in my house. After obtaining my Bachelor of Architecture at Cal Poly SLO, I began to look at my landscape photos and think, “If the photograph is this good, why should I paint it?” After becoming a licensed architect in Nevada, I had children whom I photographed and realized that people will want photos like this of their kids, so I opened Creation Studio in 2005.
I love photographing children, they are so precious. I love to just follow them around and capture them where they are at for the moment they are with me. I also enjoy photographing families. One family chose a proof I would not have, but the mom stated, “That is such the personality of my family, I love it.” As an architect, I love to capture a building’s personality, even the more challenging ones. I once had an architect say, “I never knew my buildings looked so good.”
Life is full of precious fleeting moments, and I love to capture them with a camera.
