About Me

Ever since I can remember, I've always been drawn to the art of capturing moments. The simple act of pressing a button, freezing time, and immortalizing a fleeting instance is something that has always fascinated me. I am Ron, a man of simple pleasures, and photography is my passion. It began as a hobby, a mere pastime that I indulged in during my spare hours. But as time passed, it became an integral part of my existence, something that defined who I was, and who I wanted to be.

I've been blessed to share my life with my beautiful wife for 33 blissful years. Together, we've raised two extraordinary boys, Samuel Andrew and Gabriel Seth, who have been my greatest inspirations. Samuel was born prematurely at 25 weeks, weighing only 1 pound 7 ounces. He was given a mere 3% chance of survival. Despite the odds, he fought his way through, and today, he is a 23-year-old computer whiz with an Associate's degree from HCC.

Our younger son, Gabriel, was born with a rare blood disorder that affects only 3% of the world's population. His journey has been equally challenging and inspiring. Today, he is a 19-year-old college sophomore at STCC, making us proud every single day.

As a father, I've understood the importance of documenting life's precious moments. During the early years of my sons' lives, when they spent countless hours in the NICU at Baystate Medical Center, my camera was my constant companion. I took hundreds of photographs, capturing every triumph and setback, every smile and tear. Those pictures tell a story of resilience, love, and hope - a narrative that is close to my heart.

Photography has not just remained a personal passion, but has also become my professional pursuit. From weddings, families, high school seniors, to headshots and maternity shoots, my camera has allowed me to be a part of countless stories. I've had the privilege of photographing the iconic "Yankee Candle" in South Deerfield, MA, and working with IHeart Radio to capture the staff of MIX 93.1fm and KIX 100.9fm and their concerts. I've clicked the likes of Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker, Miranda Lambert, Lady A, Eric Church, The Swon Brothers, Jake Owen, and Kelsea Ballerini.

But perhaps, what gives me the most satisfaction is donating my time and services to charities like the March of Dimes, St Jude, CMN, and many local community benefits. It's my way of giving back, of using my passion to make a difference.

"Let there be Light" - these words guide my journey. I see myself not just as a photographer, but also as a storyteller, a documentarian of life. Through my lens, I serve my God and my community, capturing moments of joy, sorrow, triumph, and love, and in the process, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
