People often ask why we opened a photography studio. Honestly- it’s our love of art, photography and people. Portraits are an important piece of family history. They often capture a specific time or achievement in your life. Their value is permanent, so we’re honored when clients choose us to create these one of a kind, personal art pieces. We give our clients a truly personal and unique experience. From the pre-portrait consultation, through the actual photo session and choosing your favorite images in our comfy viewing room- we make it a creative, personal and satisfying experience. You’ll enjoy the relaxed and friendly atmosphere here at our Farmington Hills photography studio. Book your appointment now and come see why we have so many fantastic five star Google reviews!

Lover of Life and People
Whether I’m playing music with my wife and friends (I’m a long time guitarist/bassist/singer), driving and enjoying cool cars, walking my beagle mix Beemer, playing tennis or just relaxing- I try to see the beauty and humor of life. And then there’s photography. I fell in love with photography when I was young. I saw a Black and White print exhibition featuring Walker Evans, and I was absolutely knocked out! I studied photography at the Art Institute of Atlanta in 1988 and 1989 and have worked as a professional photographer ever since. Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of learning continuously from many master photographers. I’m proud to be a Certified Professional Photographer and a member of the Professional Photographers of America. My wife Cheryl and I continue to study and evolve as photographic artists through self-assignments, research, running our own photography studio, and continuing to take photography courses and attend seminars.
Lifelong learning keeps us inspired…
