What is in a name? I believe a name is a very powerful expression of what we are and what we strive to become.

I have chosen the name Sol-to-Soul Photography because I believe that we as living things are all surrounded by light (Sol). Light is also one of the most important components to any great image, and photography in general. Additionally, I believe that the eye or camera can be a mirror into the Soul. For this reason, I decided to combine these terms, and utilize them as the center of my ambition around photography and this site. My hope is to create fine images that capture the 'Sol' and 'Soul' in each photograph I create.

I have taken a couple of classes with Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures, with Margo Pinkerton and Arnie Zann, and one of the infamous sayings, (of many) that the instructor, Margo, (aka The Barefoot Contessa), states is, 'It's all about the Light'. The knowledge I have gained within the wisdom of their classes is priceless. It has made me more passionate and eager to create even greater images than ever before!

I have been taking pictures of my children, Mikayla and Tyler, for years and having their growing years documented in photographs is a wonderful gift. Over the past 5 years I have traveled some, and have really enjoyed creating photographs on these adventures of life's natural 'Sol' and 'Soul'. I invite you to visit the Gallery photos to experience some of this as well.

I hope you enjoy my photos and I thank you for taking the time to visit the site!

“Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.” (George Eastman)

"They say that the eye is the window to the soul. But it is the soul that is the window". (Andrew Hamilton)

"Art is the window to man's soul. Without it, he would never be able to see beyond his immediate world; nor could the world see the man within". (Lady Bird Johnson)
