For Keeps is one of those names that say it all in so few letters - kind of like when something as simple as a subject’s facial expression can elevate a photograph to the status of keepsake.
My photos chronicle families and groups, free to be themselves in a favorite setting - or perhaps an unfamiliar one. Portraits are my passion, too, my wandering lens gazing upon newborn and senior citizen alike; the just-engaged and those who just tied the knot; the expectant mother; awkward-free school photos you won’t find in any yearbook.
I aim to capture the natural interaction, the celebration of the relationship, the fleeting moments that make people “so them” and life so perfectly imperfect. Free of silly props and families in matching khaki outfits, my focus is to make the experience of being photographed a highly personalized occasion, a snapshot in time to be treasured decades later.
You know, for keeps.
