What does your business do or what service do you provide?

I am a photographer specializing in senior portraits, family portraits, and action sports photography.  I strive to capture those special moments at affordable prices.

Can you give some history of your business?

When I was eight years old, I received my first camera and a lifelong passion for photography was born. Even at that age, I loved how you could capture a moment in time with film. That passion would continue into my adult years where I would shoot hundreds of rolls of film to capture the perfect moments. I started my business in 2010, putting the knowledge that I had gained over the years to good use. I cover a wide area of portrait photography; from maternity to newborns, senior and family portraits, weddings and even some pet photography.

Why do you do what you do? What motivates you in your business?

Photography is interesting, these days “everyone” is a photographer with the advancements in the cameras in phones. That is true to a point,  but it truly takes someone who has put in their 10,000 hours, understands composition, editing and presentation to find the magic of the portrait.  Nothing makes me happier than seeing my clients eyes when they see their portraits for the first time. To see how happy a mother is of her graduating child, or to see a family get together to capture those photos that will freeze a moment in time, it is so fulfilling and rewarding.

What do you think sets your business apart?

With portrait photography, I believe in showing the essence of the person and who they are, not just a pose. I enjoy placing people in interesting or unique locations to create portraits that bring out the subject’s personality and interests.  I take the time to understand my client, what they really want out of their photoshoot and then build the experience to suit they needs.

Why did you choose Siena as your home? What do you like most about living here?


When Amy and I were looking for a home, we discovered Siena in Round Rock and fell in love.  The location, the look and feel of the neighborhood and the people have all been great.  We are very happy to plant some roots and see the subdivision grow and mature.
