Fort Myers Photographer
Photography of Joy for over twenty years on the beaches of Fort Myers. I became fascinated with photography when I was very young. I studied and assisted my father who was a wedding and family photographer for all his life. I would assist my father at weddings and carry the film. The film he used for his family photography sessions and weddings was the size of a greeting card! Then one day when I was twelve years old, my father gave me a camera, but with no film! I was not allowed to have film until I could identify each part of the camera with my eyes closed. So I quickly studied the camera for my test and graduation to film. As a teenager I worked as a news photographer and journalist for several local newspapers in the northeast. I continued my education in photography at the Art Institute. Then I arrived to Fort Myers to continue shooting family portraits and weddings. I found the difference and quality of light contributed wonderfully to my photography.
Wedding and Family Photography
When I am on assignment in Fort Myers at a wedding or family photo session, I still cannot believe I am on the beach! I continue to study the colors and saturation in my photography that the different but gentle seasons of Fort Myers provides. I was worried some years ago that I might someday lose my excitement of creating wedding photography and family photo sessions. However, it is just the opposite, my enthusiasm continues to grow. I have this hope that as a wedding couple look back at the photography I created, it will help keep their relationship strong. I have joy as I photograph the little children with their parents in a family session. I pray that someday they will look at my photography and see the proof of how much their parents love them. I bring enthusiasm to my wedding and family portrait sessions. I look to create photography that is true without artificiality. I hope that my images will stand the test of time and be seen as classic, not just part of any current fad. My editorial and adverting images are represented by Getty Images. I know you will see my joy of being the photographer at your wedding or family portrait session.
