WHY I do what I do :

I absolutely LOVE what I do.  It’s been a great career to provide for my family and a nice lifestyle.  We see clients when they are at their best and are able to celebrate all occasions with them.  I’ve had a photography studio for 28 years so it’s been challenging to change with the times to stay current and still in demand from our clients.
