Art of Love Photography is committed to providing professional images with a creative flair. Excellent service is the cornerstone of our clients' satisfaction.  My goal is to portray the essence of my subject with ingenuity of expression to create a more powerful image.  I embrace challenge because it keeps me receptive to new ideas and concepts that help to capture special moments in a unique way.

I love photography and my passion is evident in everything I do!  I am very fortunate to have a diverse background in many aspects of my life and professional career.

On a more personal level ...

The first image I ever created, processed and printed was in my home darkroom, of my beloved dog "Bullet".  I was 14 years old and I have been hooked ever since!  The good news is I have upgraded my equipment since then.  We use professional Nikon digital equipment.

I'm an adventurous, fun loving and creative soul!  If you would like to know what gets my heart pounding to the rhythms of life ...it's in giving my all, and livin' life to the fullest.

I love the outdoors: in my early twenties I was a white water rafting guide on the American River and learned to climb with the California Mountain Rescue Team.  Life is all about experiences ...in the U.S. I have crossed the borders of 48 states while thoroughly enjoying the splendor of many of the national parks and trails.  

I'm a huge animal lover, family oriented and very lucky to have mine.  I find myself fortunate on so many levels.

I love to travel and appreciate the beauty in the world, whether it's the grandeur of nature or the wonderful people I meet along the way.

Thanks for your visit, I hope to hear from you soon.
