Everyone has a story. Here's mine.
Yes, I'm a photographer. Honestly, that's the easy part. There are lots of us out there.
More importantly, I'm a wife. I have a husband who has stood by me while I've grown up (not always easy), and has shared with me a commitment, friendship and love that has weathered the ups and downs of life. I'm a very lucky girl. I'm a mom. I have two beautiful children that have taught me more about love and life than I could have possibly imagined and I love to see the world through their unique lenses. I have had a great career in the marketing field for the last fifteen years, which means that I am driven to capture life with light for reasons other than a paycheck. It's because I love it.
So, yes, while I'm a photographer, all of these other ares of my life that help define me shape the type of photographs I take, the stories my images tell. I'm passionate, emotional, happy and determined. I pour a lot of the things that make me "me" into my craft and I believe that shows. When I photograph children, I try to capture the real child ... not just the part of them that can say "cheese". When I photograph a wedding, I love being the "fly on the wall", telling the story. A wedding is one day in a whole lifetime of days, so it's important to tell a story that will stand the test of time.
My favorite "things" to photograph (which aren't really things at all), are relationships, the unexpected, the unnoticed, the fleeting and the real.
My business has grown immensely in the past year or so, and absolutely all of the credit goes out to my clients. They are amazing, and they are building this with me - picture by picture. In turn, I try to spoil them rotten and give them as much as they give me. When is the last time a business told you they babied their clients? In this day and age, it just doesn't happen that much, but I believe that if I use my photography skills and product offerings to create an experience for you that is meaningful, enjoyable and EASY, you are more likely to become one of those amazing clients that then tell their friends and family about me.
Everyone has a story. Let me tell yours.
