Santa Rosa Beach/30A Photographer
Lifestyle Photographer on 30A
How can we become still? By moving with the stream. —Tao Te Ching
My approach to family portraits and wedding photography lies in my 35 years of experience in the portrait photography industry. In 1997 I moved away from the traditional portrait industry in my home town of Nashville, Tn to the fresh & modern philosophy of lifestyle photography that is embodied in the 30A & South Walton area .
Whether I am photographing a family or children that I have just met, a nervous, yet excited bride before she walks down the isle, models for a fashion photography job, documentary travel, etc.. my images tend to render simplicity and capture the importance of uniqueness in my subjects.
Having a trusted connection between myself and my subject helps our session stay relaxed and fun. I tend not to pose my subjects too much, but instead, through conversation, stop them when I find they’re in their most natural position and comfortable with me, Only then does the camera become invisible and my subject’s true character is so beautifully enhanced.
Through the years my expressive style of portraiture has become highly recognized to the 30A area as the proverbial lifestyle island portrait.
