I’d like to take a moment to tell you a little about myself and why photography is such a passion of mine. I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for 26 years! Yes, that makes me feel pretty old. I’m a proud mother of an adult daughter and son. And in 2017 I gained a daughter-in law. I also have two fur babies that make me happy, a persnickety Siamese cat and a crazy Goldendoodle.
I’ve always loved art and being creative. My interest in photography started back in junior high. The first camera I had was a Kodak Disc, if any of you remember those. My interest in photography peaked when I became a mom. I became a weekly customer at the one-hour film-processing store. With the popularity of scrapbooking I had found the perfect hobby. I was able to photograph my children, design layouts and preserve their story.
Photography has grown from a hobby to a passion for me. In 2015 I took my hobby and officially made it a business. Over the years I’ve invested in professional equipment, editing software, lighting gear, studio props, online education, workshops and photography conferences taught by some of the most respected and talented photographers in the business. I pride myself on being meticulous and I’m my own worst critic. Some may even call me a perfectionist. I don’t take my job or responsibility lightly because people’s memories are important.
Photography is truly a melting pot of all the things I love: my family, creating a link to the past and just being creative. There are many things I love about being a photographer: planning and coordinating a session, creating beautiful images and building a relationship with my clients. My favorite part, though? It’s knowing that I helped preserve a moment in time. Whether it’s your brand-new baby, family photos with your 6-year old’s toothless grin, your high school senior or a couple celebrating a special anniversary -- you now have those moments documented for not only you, but future generations to enjoy.
Anyway, enough about me. I’m so glad you’re here scrolling through my website. I specialize in a variety of photography sessions: newborn, children, family and senior. Let’s create something beautiful for your family. I can’t wait to hear from you!
We are proud that our art has been PUBLISHED both internationally & nationally in Shutter Magazine.
