As a wedding and portrait photographer, I strive to create images that tell the story of your life with beauty and grace, respect and imagination. Foregoing forced smiles and stiff poses, I embrace natural smiles and expressions in order to create images that have a unique freshness and vitality and a heartfelt and emotional authenticity.

You Are Captivating

Beauty is a quality of the soul that expresses itself in the visible world. You can see it. You can touch it. You are drawn to it. Beauty illuminates. Its essence, says Thomas Aquinas, is its "luminosity." It is bound up with the immortal. Beauty flows from a heart that is alive.

Every woman possesses a captivating beauty. Every woman. It takes time for it to emerge into wholeness. It needs to be cultivated, restored, set free. We desire to possess a beauty that is worth pursuing, worth fighting for, a beauty that is core to who we truly are. We want beauty that can be seen; beauty that can be felt; beauty that affects others; a beauty all our own to unveil. Glorious, powerful, and captivating.
- Excerpts from Captivating, by John and Stasi Eldredge

I am thankful to Skye Hardwick for introducing me to Captivating and Wild at Heart, companion books that invite us to explore the mysteries of the feminine and masculine hearts. What makes you come alive? What stirs your heart? Begin your journey.

And just in case you were wondering, sweet girl, yes, you are lovely. You are worth fighting for. You are captivating.
