About Me

I’ve always wanted my work as a people photographer to serve a greater good, that is, to fulfill the need we all have as humans for meaning and inspiration in our lives. And because so much of the meaning in our lives comes from our relationships, I’ve focused my abilities almost exclusively on creating artistic photography that highlights and reaffirms the meaning we derive from our most treasured relationships.

Me and my wife Jodi - photography by Joe LilesGreat family photography transports us back in time and gives us the opportunity to remember the special times we’ve shared together. Not only should it capture the true essence of our loved ones, it should also artistically document a unique moment in a family’s life. Understanding this, my goal is to create artful photography for you that is timeless and that will reawaken you to the meaning in each special moment captured.

Whether you want a beautiful portrait of your children, family or pet, an event or wedding photographer, a high school senior portrait photographer or just a great business head-shot, you’re in the right place. That’s because my number one goal is listening to you to understand what you want, being flexible in meeting your needs and creating a one-of-a-kind work of art for you that you’ll absolutely love.

People come to me for much more than just great pictures – they want me to help them create something that captures and expresses the true essence of something very special to them. Establishing a rapport with you is the first step to ensuring that I understand what that “something special” is. That way we’ll be sure to come up with the best ideas together and create photography that will truly meet your needs.
