After falling in love with photography in my teens, I have found it to be a consuming passion ever since. Anything that looked interesting at first naturally became part of my portfolio.
It wasn't until 1981 after taking a film processing class in Hawaii that I began to focus on people. In time it developed into covering weddings and events of which I still do today.
I still get great enjoyment seeing a Bride's face as she sees her wedding photos for the first time. She now has lasting memories that she can pass down to generations. That is my way to ensure that her legacy in pictures will be high quality; knowing there is no second chance.
In 2004, I began to incorporate God's Word into my photographs. I was clueless as to what verse fit which image. It wasn't until being led by the Holy Spirit in May 2008 that everything began to fall into place. That was when I was led to launch my web site for Living Word Images.
I believe these images are my way being a Minister of God's Word to those who are searching for the joy and peace that one can only find in Jesus Christ. As God's Word says;
"A man's steps are directed by the LORD. How then can anyone understand his own way?" Proverbs 20:24 (New International Version)
Today I continue to document events and people (especially in New Orleans) to preserve the culture not found anywhere else on earth. Knowing these images will only speak louder to the generations to follow.
