I’m so glad you stopped by to learn more about what I do. I am an artist at heart and love to capture beauty in this world, which is reflected in the way I photograph. I love nature, adventure, children, and of course all of those things combined! Our time together is not just a photography session – it is your adventure, your experience, your family. I take photographs to freeze a memory – to take me back to that point in time. I believe that life is made up of collections of moments. They pass us by so quickly and it’s so easy to forget them. I didn’t truly experience this until my children were born. They grow and learn and change SO QUICKLY and it all goes by in the blink of an eye. I don’t want to forget those moments. When I look at pictures of my babies hung on my wall, it brings me unmeasured joy, remembering those happy moments.
My love of art started at a young age. Always creating and designing new things. I started appreciating photography, particularly landscapes and magical spaces. When I was in middle school, my grandfather passed away. I will always remember his love (obsession) with photography – he captured the most amazing, expressive photographs of my sister and me at a young age and it inspired me. I still have his old film cameras to this day! I think a lot of this inspiration comes out in my photography style. I love the look of film.
I started out practicing my art through painting and focused on trees. So many trees. I studied them and painted them in every kind of light and style imaginable. This influences my photography today as well. My favorite place to be and capture images is in the woods and in nature. It’s so natural and brings out the best in almost everybody.
On your adventure with me, we will experience all the beautiful connections that come with being a part of a family. My goal is to capture all the subtle nuances that come with that. And give you the gift of being able to return to these moments, these feelings, time and time again.
