When I photograph children I prefer to be somewhere that they like to be and taking pictures of them doing what they like to do. I work to capture the range of their personality, interests, passions, humor and capabilities.
I am in my fifth year working with The Children's School. I go to school, chat with the children and take pictures of them living their life at school. Parents are then able to purchase the pictures and the school can use them for marketing and documentation puproses (their current website is a great example, as I took almost every picture http://www.tcsboise.org/index.php ) . We were also able to create and sell a yearboook - 20% of all of my profits went back to the school. In our first year, we made over $1600 for the school.
I enjoy shooting parties, gathering, and youth events of any kind. Anything where I can take pictures of people doing something they enjoy!
