I've loved photography ever since I was a young child, watching my Dad taking family pictures. On school trips and at high school sporting events, I was always the one taking pictures.
At age 16. I borrowed a camera from the cantor of my synagogue, and took a cab to photograph my first Bar Mitzvah. Some years later, I worked my way through graduate school--where I studied Psychological Counseling--by doing photography. I've always believed that my ability to help people feel relaxed and comfortable came from my graduate studies.
For six years after earning my Master's degree, I did both counseling and photography. Eventually, I chose photography as a full-time career.
Today, I feel blessed that my work enables me to capture some of the most special moments of people's lives.
