Knowing how COVID changed everything for how people and businesses operate, it became so important to visually describe the details of a business and then show who you’re supporting. That’s where I found a great crossover in portraiture and branding/commercial photography.

Whether it’s a high school senior or a construction company, my aim is to show genuine
connection with each subject, to visually share their personality and to tell their unique story.
