I’m so grateful that I have the opportunity to turn my passion into my career. I love picking up my camera everyday and never knowing what the world is going to bring my way. With over 16 years of photography experience, I approach every session in a fresh way that reflects the unique aspects of that person. I try to naturally capture who my subjects are with an artistic flare; letting the real moments shine. I've photographed breaking news and fashion magazine covers and everything in between. But I enjoy the one on one connection in a portrait session the most.
When I’m not taking photos, you can find me at home with my wife, Nicole, and our two pups, Kodak and Elvis. We enjoy trying new foods (and drinks) in Austin, abroad, or cooking at home. I’m typically referred to as the grill master most Sunday afternoons. I try to hit the bike trail a few times a week and will stop by to help my wife on her Herb Farm in East Austin. I love music from 70’s , movies from 80’s and tv from 90’s , but none of those are mutually exclusive.
I try to created an extremely relaxed environment for my clients. I treat the session more like a conversation with photos in between. Getting to know each other and joking around creates natural smiles and comfortable poses instead of anything forced. I show my clients how to look their best and be their best self.

I love shooting in Downtown Austin, Mueller Lake Park, South Congress, The Capitol Grounds, Zilker Botanical Gardens, Laguna Gloria, Mckinley Park and anywhere new that I've never been before.
