Faith Photography

Faith Photography is a professional, freelance photography business. Rather than a traditional studio environment, we work strictly on location, bringing "the studio" to you. We personalize your images with your surroundings, not ours -- you get a personalized portrait with the convenience of us coming to you.

I am a photographer because I love people and the relationships we form with each another. The absolute wonder of a small child; the incredible beauty of an elderly person; the depth of love I see as a father and daughter dance... and hug and cry during her wedding reception - all these bring tears to my eyes. The privilege of capturing all the emotions - love, happiness, quiet contentment and giddy silliness - that form the fabric of our lives humbles me, and I am truly blessed to be part of a profession that provides priceless treasures that will be cherished for generations. The moments we share with loved ones today will be part of history tomorrow - and I delight in preserving these "slices of time" in photographs that stir the heart.
