Kairos: the right or opportune moment

It can be a challenge to get to know a person through a website… but hopefully you can get a feel for who I am and what I am about by browsing this site.  I really enjoy life, getting to know people and finding out who they are.  I enjoy making people smile and laugh.  I see the world through the lens of a camera, so what some may say is unappealing; I see the beauty within.  Beauty is more than an outward appearance; it is an inward glow that cannot be manufactured.  Everything in life tells a story, and as a photographer I have a level of discretion to focus on bringing out the best in a person to tell their story.

This is exactly why I named my photography business Art of Kairos.

The Art of Kairos means that I artistically capture special moments of true emotion and inner beauty.  The word Kairos is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment.  This exemplifies what a good photograph does: capture the moment of true emotion and evoke those same emotions years later.  I love creatively and artistically capturing those heartfelt moments.

I specialize in wedding photography and engagement sessions (or “get to know you sessions”).  I encourage you to take the time to get to know me by exploring the website, reading my blog, or browsing the gallery.  I would like to get to know you as well so feel free to contact me if you would like to find out more.
