7 years ago when my daughter was born all I wanted to do was spend every second cuddling and playing with this beautiful gift God gave our family. After a year at home I decided I needed a creative outlet and get out of the house. So I drank a ton of coffee and sat up all night dreaming about what my ideal life would look like. And in that all nighter God reminded me of my first love.
My first time having my images framed in a household
was when I was 12 and took photos at my parents
wedding. My images on a little disposable camera were better than the paid photographer's. I just loved experimenting with composition and capturing candids. Later in Jr High and High School I took photography electives earning awards, prizes and scholarships in school and competitions. So getting my first college degree for Media Art emphasis in photography just made sense.
After that I worked for magazines and local photographers focusing mainly with bands, concerts, and art shows. Photography was different back then it was all film and processed in a darkroom. More of a personalized art form.
Starting my business in 2014 was out of passion for people.
I believe beautiful images don't have to come at a high cost and that everyone in front of my camera deserves to feel like they're being talked to by a friend behind the camera.
My family means everything to me and I am grateful that they let me run around doing what I need to do in order to have a successful business.
