Catching the Magic...

I started taking pictures as a child with a Kodak Instamatic camera! Photography became a hobby and evolved into a service I enjoy providing for others. Though my photos have been used by local media such as KMSP, KSTP, KARE and the Star Tribune, my greatest pleasure is the joy others get when seeing the pictures I have taken for them.  A student gave me a particularly heart-warming compliment when he said I, "caught the magic" of his group's performance.

A Note about Prints

All prints are produced at White House Custom Colour (WHCC) in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, who has been serving portrait and wedding photographers since 1977. WHCC has a solid reputation and produces prints with excellent color reproduction. Papers used are archive-quality papers, designed to last for generations. You have the option of choosing between Glossy and Lustre.

Glossy: Coated paper with a very smooth, shiny, reflective surface. Glossy finishes have a high-contrast appearance and look slick to the touch when not under glass. This finish has an excellent dynamic range and color. Photos will have a shiny finish, colors will be vibrant, and images will be crisp and sharp.

Lustre: Lustre is a premier paper offering and is considered a professional-grade paper. Lustre has a slight gloss with a subtle, often pearl-like, texture. Lustre paper has deeper color saturation and higher contrast than matte and is materially "thicker," or heavier, than consumer paper. And none of the glare associated with glossy prints!
