|"Naturally, my style of
photography is candid
photojournalism since I
have years of experience
doing just that.
As most photographers
would admit, a good
photojournalist must be
able to make prize-winning
images with any and all
subject matter, going in
with absolutely no
pre-planning at all.
This style of image-
gathering is what most
families like in their photo
You will see perfectionist
results in the photos I
make for you."
