Mission statement: “The clarity to my photography mission struck me when a friend that was recovering from a stroke came to me and said that when she was having a tough day she looked at my photographs and it cheered her up and gave her hope.”
“When its 7 degrees, and I am waiting for the sun to rise, I think of those words, and it warms my heart. That I may in some way share the beauty of creation to someone that needs a bit of encouragement or different perspective to improve their day, makes it all worthwhile.”

Photos On The Vine is a local photography studio which also holds various types of photography classes from beginner classes to studio lighting.
