Vision (Athens OHIO Childrens Portrait Photographer)

Athens Ohio based Fine Art Portraiture Photographer, specializing in Childhood, Senior, and Conceptual Photography.

“There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again.” -Elizabeth Lawrence

Photographic Style:

True life is experienced in its most unplanned moments. The emotions that follow are a testament to our genuine selves, a canvas of reality.

With my camera and my love of the arts, I will document this experience for you. I strongly believe that practiced moments in a studio setting do not capture the genuine spirit and expression of the childhood experience.

I invite you to come with me to places that will bring wonder, comfort, and excitement to your photographic session.

See your children as the magical beings they truly are, unaware of the camera, natural, free, innocent, and not yet molded by society. Children fascinate me, just to sit back and watch a child discover the world around them. That is what I aim to capture, the true essence of childhood in all it's moments, both full of joy and wonder, tears or pouts.. real life childhood moments.

Please keep in mind that I am not a traditional family portrait photographer. I consider myself a portrait artist and specialize in children, newborns, seniors, and conceptual work.

During a children's session I might capture a child interacting with a parent, mom kissing baby, or dad chasing a toddler, but I typically do not intentionally pose for "say cheese" family portraits.

I tend to treat my senior portrait sessions more like creative model shoots as opposed to the standard cheesy studio shots you see in advertisements.

No matter the subject, I strive to create artistic emotion that is different than a conventional photographic session, and to capture timeless and emotive memoirs of real life moments.

To catch my subject's true personality is of utmost importance to me and my work.

~Thank you for allowing me to share a piece of your lives through my camera lens, and in return I'll provide you artful nostalgia to be looked back on for many generations to come.
