Welcome to my new blogsite! Thanks for stopping by. This has been such an exciting journey. I have grown so much in the past couple of years and have met some amazing people along the way. What I have learned is that I am not the photographer for everyone and everyone is not meant to be my client. And that is ok! Photography is truly my passion. I think about it almost entirely too much. I stay up until the wee hours of the morning editing or brainstorming, because that is the only quiet, uninterrupted time I have. I have so many ideas for next year that I am pumped to tell you about….soon!
A little bit more about me. I’m a perfectionist by nature, but through photography I have found that I love the imperfections in life. One of my favorite photos is one of our first family pictures, I stuck my son’s pacifier in my pocket. It is sticking out and clear as day in the photo and I made a huge canvas out of it. Everyone comments about the binky. Everyone asks, “Why didn’t you photoshop it out?” Because, I love it! My son loved his pacifier and we didn’t go anywhere without it. In my eyes, that binky told more of a story than the picture itself. My life has not been perfect. It has not followed the ideal path. I have not always done things the right way. But I wouldn’t go back and change anything! I am who I am because of the good and bad I have experienced.
I’m a pretty open book, so if you’ve known me for any amount of time, you know a lot about me. I make friends easily. I like to make you laugh and I love for people to make me laugh. I’m totally quoting another photographer here, but she seriously took the words right out of my head, “All I want in life is to photograph genuine people and not be the photographer who just “takes your photos”. I want to capture pure heartfelt moments and fill your head with memories every time you look back at your photos.” My goal is to capture your connections. I am so lucky to get to do what I do, but I also take it seriously and want to deliver the best images I possibly can.
I am excited for this year. I am excited to continue on my path to see where in leads next. I want use my creativity and shoot things that make me happy. I don’t want to be that person that just takes your pictures. I look forward to continuing my relationships with my current clients and meeting new faces. So if it sounds like we click, contact me, I’d love to work with you!
