Do not hire a man who does your work for money, but him who does it for love of it – Henry David Thoreau
I have had a passion for photographs all my life. I have been documenting my life and the lives around me for as long as I can remember. It wasn’t until I had my daughter that I decided follow my passion, realize my dreams and do what I love for a living.
I love to show people their own best angle … and see how beautiful they truly are. I love to capture a perfect moment. Those times that may be insignificant to others but to you, they are treasures for a lifetime. Things that we swear we will remember but alas forget. Fleeting moments of a newborn grasping his mother’s hand, the belly laughter of a little girl, the pensive gaze of an inquisitive child, the unmistakable grown-up look of a high school senior poised to pursue her dreams, an engaged couple in the very infancy of their love, or expecting parents filled with anticipation at the imminent arrival of their little miracle can be revisited again and again. Wobbly steps, temper tantrums, pouty faces, tickle fights, tender hugs: these are real life. These are moments worth capturing and preserving.
Family photography to me is a way of being here now, quite literally “celebrating here today”. Cherishing in light and form those people who mean so much to us. What is most important in this life, I believe, are those we care about. Photographs live on and are not just for us, but for our children and their children. That is a legacy I am blessed to be part of.
Wedding photography is a passion in and of itself for me. I feel its an honor to capture your wedding day memories and approach the traditional with an eye for the artistic. I put 110% of myself into your wedding photos and pride myself on not missing a thing. I am easy to talk to and fun to work with and make the big day photography process easy and fun.
My goal as your photographer is to always exceed your expectations in every way, I believe in beautiful professional photography that is a affordable to the average person and/or family. I provide a comfortable, relaxed, fun environment. More like a conversation with a friend. A toddler photo shoot may feel more like a play date. I find the more relaxed you and your family are with me, the better the result. I give you direction and we work together to capture images you will love and cherish for a lifetime. I hope that you will allow me to take a glimpse into your world for a brief moment to capture the essence of who you and your children are.
I love to be around my animals, family and friends. My favorite thing is to explore the world though my daughter’s eyes. My daughter is my breath and my husband is my life. I will be quite satisfied when I am 80 if I have loved them well and taken some amazing photographs along the way.
