The marching arts have been a huge part of my life since I was 10 years old. First as a performer and then for the past 15+ years as an instructor, marching band and color guard activities have had a huge part in shaping who I am as a person. I have competed in national baton twirling competitions, played clarinet, led my high school and college colorguards, performed in NFL Halftime shows, and built a regionally competitive high school program. I have served as both the education director and colorguard coordinator for a winter guard circuit, have written a bimonthly column for a national marching arts magazine (2007 – 2010) and currently run an educational website for color guard coaches. To say that I love marching arts activities and the life lessons they provide our performers would be an understatement.
It is a blessing for me to be able to capture these special moments in time for other marching arts families. Whether it’s creating custom team portraiture or capturing live action at events, I enjoy every minute knowing just how important these moments are to each and every performer and how hard every family involved works to make these performances come to life. It makes me feel great knowing that parents can sit back and really engage in their child’s performance – really enjoy the moment – while I capture time for them.
I use professional cameras and lenses designed especially for high performance in challenging low-light, no flash situations encountered at most performance events. Natural light team and individual portrait sessions are available as well.
