I have 20 years of shooting portfolios, portraits, events, weddings and products. I have been with LookBetterOnline since 2007.


I try and help customers feel comfortable by having friendly conversation with a smile. During the conversation, I may ask a series of questions about things not related to the shoot just to break the ice. I add in compliments, some specific details about the shoot to keep them informed and to reassure them I know what I'm doing. Then I let them in on the magic by sharing a couple of the photos from time to time so they can see what is happening. I also ask them if they want to listen to music. If so, I find their favorite artist or genre to play during the shoot on my Bluetooth speaker. These are some of the ways I help my customer feel comfortable.

Favorite Locations:

I tend to stick to parks and natural settings. Greenways have been my favorite place to photograph when in Charlotte. They are typically lined with scenic views and the right mix of concrete and natural backdrops.
