I specialize in portrait photography of kids, teens and families. I also work with professionals and business owners update their online business images and headshots.

So why the name, Wallflower Photography?
Well, for me it symbolizes so much!
First, a WALLFLOWER, to me, represents every cherished piece of your life that is special enough to be remembered and revered. They are the things that earn a place on the “esteemed refrigerator” or the “magnificent mantle” in your home. From a crayon drawing to a formal family portrait, they are the things that bring us comfort and peace, they define our spaces and transcend our mere 'houses' into unique and personal homes.
Second, the word WALLFLOWER is traditionally used to describe a shy person, who stays on the fringe of social gatherings. Part of this definition eludes to my style as a portrait photographer. I am anything but shy, quite the opposite in fact, but I love to hang back and exercise patience with my subjects. Waiting for the magical moment when they relax, forget about the camera and let their true inner self and beauty shine through is why I feel so blessed in my profession. I love a great smile and a joyous expression, but pensive and thoughtful images always tell a magical story.
Lastly, the FLOWER in my logo is my own artistic creation (all cleaned up and fancy for show) and is my favorite 'doodle' of ALL time. If there is scrap of paper or napkin and pen within my reach, you can bet the farm that there will be a flower doodle on it!
