“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” – Henry David Thoreau
Although I do LOVE photography, what life has taught me over and over is that my passion is PEOPLE. I love being with, working with, playing with, laughing with.. people!
My life changed in so many ways in 2008 when our twins were born. I wanted to capture every moment on camera, and told myself if I could catch a funny smile, or a close up of chubby little fingers and toes, maybe a piece of them would be frozen in time. Combining my passion for people and love of photography became a MUST, so I began studying photography more in depth, taking classes, and buying new equipment. In 2011, I quit my full time job and started my business. Now I’m living my dream and there is no looking back!
What a blessing it is, to know I am doing exactly what I am meant to do. Photography is such an exciting challenge! It keeps me on my toes, coming up with different ideas for shoots, scouting out fun new locations, using different editing techniques. Knowing the work I am doing is a preserved part of a family’s history is so special to me.
Every photographer has their own style. I believe there is a place for posed photos, but my favorite moments to capture are the real ones. The tender, funny, crazy moments that tell a story about what life was, at that moment in time. I’d love you to look over my portfolio and see if I’m a good fit for your family!
