Hi and welcome. I enjoy taking pictures of people that are just like me and my family. I'm a father, husband, grandfather, nature lover, practical joker, fun loving, shy, good neighbor, and dreamer.
I'm a native South Floridian, born and raised in Hollywood, Florida. I graduated college with a bachelor’s degree in computer science and immediately started my career as a technology professional for the local school district. Through my teen and adult years I was always taking pictures. Documenting the people, places, and events in my life. Never did I imagine I would pursue photography as a second career.
I was handed my first camera as a teenager in high school, a 35mm film Mamiya Sekor. I learned photography working in my father’s film processing and printing lab as I was attending college. This gave me the unique opportunity view hundreds of thousands of pictures and interact with professionals as well as average everyday picture takers.
My technology career has financially supported me and my family, but photography has been my passion. Late in my technology career I began to lose the feeling of purpose. It was not fun and exciting as it was when I was younger. My technology area is very stressful and I began to realize that photography provided me an outlet to relax, have fun, and help focus to see the world from a different perspective.
As I was approaching an opportunity for early retirement, I decided to hone my skills and pursue my entrepreneurial dream and second career in photography. I enjoy the people interactions and discovery of different personalities, nature, and just everyday occurrences. I especially enjoy capturing special moments in time through the camera lens.
Photography has freed the creative side of my personality and is now challenging me to be what I have always wanted to be, an entrepreneur pursuing my passion. I get great satisfaction when I see someone’s reaction to my images.
I have a genuine belief that everyone and everything is beautiful. All children and adults are talented athletes, ballerinas, or scholars, and nature needs to be appreciated.
My photography is dedicated to my father, Ed Hineline, Sr., who taught me to capture and share the beauty of the world through the lens of my camera.
I am a photographer that uses the existing natural elements of the location I’m presented. When I photograph families, I find locations that will fit their lifestyle or personalities. I photograph sports/action on location during the game or practice session. I use my experience photographing families, sports/action, nature, and on the street to capture genuine images to treasure for a lifetime.
I am a photographer that believes in telling a story with natural expressions during posed and un-posed moments. I shoot many images because every moment can provide a different and fun mood. The more time I spend, the more relaxed my subjects, which translates to instinctive and natural expressions.
Your session will be held where you are comfortable and fits your lifestyle and personality. I suggest and recommend locations that provide natural light that will tell your story and meet your expectations. Because of special family situations, such as special needs children or elderly family members, the location may need to be in the home. Together we will find the perfect location that meet your needs.
I like to schedule my sessions for late afternoon when the lighting is soft and warm. Although I am very flexible in scheduling early morning sessions for natural shots or any time for inside sessions.
Wear what you feel comfortable and tells your story. I want you to be relaxed and most importantly, be yourself.
I understand the value of saving digital images that tell a story and grow in value over time so you can reminisce about days past. I provide all high-resolution digital images for direct download via your own private on-line collection. You will have the option to purchase additional prints and products produced by one the professional printing services I use.
Within one week of your session you will receive a link to your own private on-line collection. From this collection you will have the ability to download your high-resolution digital images. You will also have access to order prints and products for additional cost.
I carefully review each image from your session and select the best. I am selecting images that tell the story of the session, show emotions, and represent me as the artist capturing your family. I shoot many images and include as many as possible.
I charge $550 for my session and is inclusive of the digital downloads. Prints and products are available for additional fees.
