For as long as I can remember, I have had a camera in my hands. And while the quality of my gear has improved dramatically since my first Mickey Mouse camera when I was a kid, my love of capturing images, moments and personalities is what drives me. My interest as a child became my passion, then my college degree and eventually my career.

Officially, LKN Images was born in 2005 when our family moved to Mooresville, NC. But many years before that, when we lived in Massachusetts and Florida, it started with me taking pictures on the sidelines of our three kids’ rec-league sports games (I was never one to just sit in the stands). Family photos evolved from that. And as our kids grew towards high school, senior photography and high school sports came with it.

My photo sessions are energetic. I move fast, talk a lot & sometimes, bounce around like a 5-year-old on a sugar high. But I have a knack for making people comfortable in front of my camera – because the camera disappears and we’re just having fun together. I guess that’s my superpower.

Today, LKN Images is a successful local business. But it’s still me. Whether I’m doing a quick headshot, spending an hour with a senior or photographing hundreds of individual athletes for the dozen local schools we support, the images I take come from that same passion to capture your personality.

I hope you will take some time to explore my web site. I’ve done my best to make it a snapshot into who I am and what I do. Enjoy the experience!
