I have always loved the spontaneity of capturing photos of people and places that I have visited, marking a moment that has passed, one that would be gone forever, save for my picture. In a way it is personal memory documentation, but it is also capturing the human spirit in vistas, landscapes, architecture and faces. It's a way of rescuing a moment by using the camera, and in that way stopping time and holding it. Here are some of my favorite moments from my home, travels, pets, wild animals, favorite city, New Orleans, LA... And my absolute favorite pasttime... seeing live music. I apologize that there are so many, it is just impossibly hard to pick and choose which to display. This is honestly a small percentage of my portfolio.
