A Bit About Me

Everybody has a story, and I am no different.  I am an educator by trade, holding a doctorate degree in educational leadership.  I am a college professor and the head of school of a small private Christian school in Mississippi.  So, why photography?  Several years ago, I went on a trip to New Orleans, Louisiana, with several friends.  Before this trip, I bought a small Nikon point-and-shoot camera to capture the memories of this trip.  When I returned home, I uploaded my photos to Facebook, no editing/retouching, etc., and within a week, a received a message from a lady asking if I would consider being the photographer at her wedding.  I immediately told her I felt inadequate and did not have the equipment for it, but she insisted, so I accepted the offer.  She took a huge risk, but her pictures turned out beautifully.

After that, I upgraded my camera equipment to a Nikon Coolpix point-and-shoot camera and continued doing what I love!  It is with this camera that I also began taking close-up photos of the moon.  Nonetheless, this little camera was far from what I truly needed to capture action photography at sporting events.  So, I upgraded again to a Nikon D7000 with multiple lenses for different occasions.  After a few years of using this camera, I upgraded once again to a Nikon D7500, and this is the camera I currently use.  I still use the D7000, and I still capture moon photos with my Nikon Coolpix.

If you're in the market for an affordable photographer for any occasion, please feel free to contact me, and I'll do my best to accommodate your needs!
