about the photographer
Why am I a photographer?
My answer to this has changed a few times over the last decade, but one thing remains the same; I want people to be able to have beautiful memories on their walls, in their wallets, to give as gifts to loved ones, and in albums.
Photography is really about relationships. The love and passion that's in a family is really what calls me to this profession. To see the excitement of a couple that is about to marry, new parents gazing at the miracle they've created, or the laughter of a family as they make silly faces at each other. Those are the moments that deserve to be captured and printed.
In a world of so many choices, how do you find the right photographer?
That's a question I think about often. Again, it comes back to relationships. Just like any relationship, there needs to be a connection. Sometimes a photographer is chosen by the connection a viewer has with the images, sometimes it's a personal relationship with the photographer. Yes, sometimes it's based solely on price. I understand that too. I want all of my clients to feel completely at ease with me. Whether we just met or I've photographed your family many times, I want you to feel like a friend. Each and every person I meet has a different story and I love to hear them because it teaches me about you. I love the little details that make your family special.
A little background on me:
I graduated from photography school in 2002. I did commercial photography for a few years, but did some portraits and weddings here and there. In 2009 I decided to start my own business focusing on families and weddings. Today, I continue to do weddings, family and child portraits, and also business portraits.
Along with my business, I am a wife, a mother of 2, a lover of the Lord, and a big fan of documentaries.
