Documentary photography is a unique style of portraiture with long art-making traditions in Photography. Lifestyle Photography is a reasonably new name for what is the tradition of documentary and story-telling photography.

Let me tell your story though beautiful, timeless Artworks.

Your family deserves to be photographed to celebrate the unique connections that bind it together. No family is alike, no family is typical. Celebrate each and every member of your family, treasure the precious moments often forgotten. Let everyday life become your joy and fall in love with your life again.
