Thank you for visiting my Zenfolio site! I am a neurosurgery nurse with a persistent passion for photography. I work at the University of VA medical center with a great group of people and enjoy my job. I am fortunate to be able to work only 30 hrs a week. This leaves me enough spare time to have a small photography business, and to pursue my passion of photography. I also fill free time with running (5Ks to half marathons), reading, gardening and being outside as much as possible. We live in Charlottesville, and have a cabin in Nelson county near the Blue Ridge parkway. I've been married 39 yrs to Dave, and we have a terrific daughter named Tess.

I shoot primarily with a Canon5D MarkII and Canon lenses, but have recently picked up some film cameras - a Holga, and a Nikon FM2, both gifted from friends. I am very much enjoying shooting with film again. It has taken me back to the basics, which is a good thing.

As you can tell from my galleries, I enjoy shooting a wide variety of subjects - events, families, seniors, theater, races and the occasional wedding. I will only consider a wedding if it is intimate and low key, or as a second shooter. Primarily I love shooting for myself, whenever I am moved by a scene, the light, a situation.

Please contact me if you are interested in scheduling a session. I will be happy to send info re cost, time, and other details. At some point I will miraculously become organized and business like and have that info on this website, but until then shoot me an email.
