A retired educator, I now divide my time between South County, Rhode Island and Sarasota
County, Florida. After working with young people and their families in education for my
entire career, I was fortunate to be able to maintain this type of connection by combining
it with my passion for photography. My work with wedding photography evolved as a result of
an interest with informal portraits combined with my love for working with young people.
It is what helps keep me young.
I truly enjoy working with the couple and their families in planning my role in the day, and then watching it unfold with the all of its happiness and excitement. This is why I have developed the wedding package the way I have; attempting to tell a story of the day with all of the love and emotion so evident.
In Rhode Island, I am an artist member of both the Wickford Art Association and the South County Center for the Arts, winning numerous awards in both associations. I have also served on the Board of Directors of SCCA. In Florida, I am a member of the Venice Camera Club as well as being a member of the National Association of Professional Photographers.
Recent awards have included second place in the Wickford Art Association "Art of the
Ocean State" juried show as well as second place in the South County Tourism Council annual
photography competition. My photography appears weekly in a pictorial column in the "South
County Independent" as well as on numerous covers of the "South County Living" Magazine.
Recent event work has included serving as Photographer for Weddings of Sarasota Wintertime Bridal Show, in January, 2011 as well as Photographer for Sarasota Chillout Lounge, March, 2011.
I am also available for engagement shoots, senior portraits and other family events, including anniversaries and reunions.
I welcome the opportunity to meet with you, to share more of my work and experiences and answer any questions that you may have.
Since I continually am creating new images, feel free to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org for additional examples of my work created after publication of this website.
