I'm Mom to five great kids.
My oldest is now finishing up his freshman year in college. I really don't see how its possible because yesterday I took him to his first day of kindergarten. My babies, the Wonder Twins, are about to enter high school. So, dear friends, I am eyeball-deep in the my-babies-are-growing-up emotional roller coaster myself!
I regret not getting serious about photography until they were all older.
I have always had an interest in good photography-- composition, light, capturing my kids just being themselves
but it wasn't until I was asked to photograph a family member with special needs-- and not being happy with the results-- that I decided to actually LEARN my camera. I had a Nikon D40 back then, but I learned to rock that little thing!
The business grew from the desire to photograph children in the way that I now wish I had done with my kids as littles.
I pour so much of myself in every push of the shutter because I am at a place in life where most of my clients are not yet. I sometimes joke with them that I know what portraits are the ones they are going to treasure in ten years, and-- I promise you--- it seldom will be the one sitting in front of a backdrop looking at the camera with a smile.
Connecting through shared experiences.
My goal, whether I am photographing your family, your newborn or your soon-to-be graduate, is for your time with me to be more than just a photo session. I want it to be a memory.
It's nice to meet you.
