The 411

I sat here imagining what it is that I wanted to portray to those of you who happen to stop by and ponder who I am.

I sat for a pretty long time.

I considered, maybe, that I should start with a cliche quote, such as 'pictures are worth a thousand words'. But I didn't want to sell out on a simple quote like that.

So I sat and pondered some more.

And really, the one thing that I can say about who I am is a photographer, is this:

"Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name goes all the glory for your unfailing love and faithfulness" Psalm 115:1

I have been blessed with a passion and a gift, and I seek it out everyday for a purpose greater than my own. I find joy in capturing the true personalities of my clients, because I desire to pursue my passion with integrity.

So, I could sit here and tell you a story about pictures being worth a thousand words, a million words, maybe even an infinite amount of words. But not one of those words would speak truth to who I am or what I do.

So, instead, I give you me. What I do and why I do it; to the core. 

Honesty is the best policy, right? (Ok, one cheesy quote is acceptable).
