"Born a photographer, raised as a musician." When I was growing up, my favorite part of the holidays were the jam sessions. Our musician friends would get together for an evening and would just sit around and play music well into the night; they became part of my family. This is where I developed my love for live music. Combine that with my Mother and Grandmother both being talented photographers, and a music photography career just makes a whole lot of sense. My "music family" has grown enormously over the years and it speaks for why I'm incredibly passionate about our city. You really don't need to look any farther than your own backyard for quality music and people. All in all, I can't imagine doing anything else, anywhere else. Capturing musicians is my "soulshine"- it's just simple bliss.
