Night Vision Photographers

Night Vision Photographers

I have horrible night vision. I have no problem telling you that. So when I am photographing at night I can barely see a few feet in front of me. So how do I get around it? Great question! When I know I will be photographing something at night I always pack one tool with Continue reading…

It’s a really nice feeling, as a photographer, to photograph a couple’s engagements photos and then be asked to photograph their maternity photographs as well. Baby Lucca is now here, but before he entered the world I met the couple at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania where the engagement photographs were made as well. We worked our Continue reading…

By The Time I Was 32

By the time I was 32

By the time I was 32 my life was in a direction I could have never predicted. All my life I have been dealing with color blindness. It’s subtle, not severe.
