About Us



We opened Photo Element Studio during the summer of 2004 and have been loving life since. We are so blessed to have a career doing what we love!

I have always been passionate about photography, and over the course of my life I have been on a creative journey of exploration in which I keep evolving my techniques and my ability to reflect what my clients want in their art. 

What makes my work stand apart is my ability to connect with my clients and understand the vision of what they want. Whether it's photographing families,  newborns, business portraits or weddings, my work always reflects a passion for directing and producing exceptional, meaningful and timeless photographs.


But I'm not alone.

I am blessed to have the remarkable Ashley Hayward on my team. She is my right-hand women, who infuses the studio with exuberance and a kind of dedication to our work that is inspiring to be around. Together we navigate through the creative process of each session and carefully give thoughtful details to each finished product.

And don't forget about our studio dog, Sully. He will gladly greet you with a lick and and high-five. He is the manager of our garden studio and is always up for giving a tour of the grounds!


From concept to execution, I am involved in every process. I partner with the best photo labs in the country and I'm proud to say, that the printing media we offer our clients is of the highest quality.


Every year the ranks of returning clients at Photo Element Studio keeps growing. Our clients are for life! 

We photograph weddings that turn into families, babies who turn into toddlers, who turn to teens. We feel blessed to watch our clients flourish through life.

From headshots of someone starting a new job, to graduations, to weddings, newborns and families, and every joyful, life-changing moment that you can think of. We enjoy creating and capturing the most memorable moments in life.


We feel truly grateful to be in this line of work and I hope you give Ashley and I the opportunity to dazzle you with photographic art that will last a lifetime!
