Who am I?

I am Michael.  My wife of almost 40 years have lived in Manassas Park for over 35 years.  I am a photographer and an IT manager.  I was even a School Board President for 5 years!  I have been very involved in raising two good men, and lucky to have two great daughters-in-law, and two grandchildren who are the lights of my life.

If an image speaks to you, it makes a lasting impression.

I discovered my real passion on a day out with a friend photographing sunflowers, koi ponds, and water flowers.  When I got home and looked through my pictures from the day, more than 80% of them had people in them.  I had photographed the people around me!  That’s when I knew what I really liked to do…  photograph people!

I love nothing more than having my sons, their wives, and our two grandchildren together at one time.  It gets loud and raucous, with lots of laughter…  emotion!  Extended family gatherings are even louder, and fast paced, but always a delight.  (most families bicker some, right?  Ha!)

Coffee is a good thing, iced tea is a very close second, and a good cheeseburger is heaven! (Hello Yorkshire Restaurant!)  Throw in some college football and I am one happy camper.

How about your family experiences?  What milestone events do you have in your future?  I would love to photograph your family, from tweens to high schooler to college grads, and make beautiful art for you home.

As I always say…    Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away
