In 1993, I asked my dad to buy me a film SLR camera for a photography class I was taking; it ignited a passion. Over the years I amassed dozens of photo albums but only felt that photography was a hobby and not something I could do full time, until 2011 when I found out that I was being excessed (laid off) from my teaching position. I turned to my husband and told him that what I really wanted to do was become a family and children photographer, so I upgraded my equipment and took a HUGE leap of faith into photography. I decided to follow my dream and do what truly makes me happy and I haven't looked back!
Working with children has been something that comes naturally to me, so it was a no-brainer to specialize in children and family photography. I strive to make my families feel comfortable in front of the camera and to capture their true personalities. Don't get me wrong, having that smiling at the camera picture is one that is important as well, but the ones where you can really see your child's uniqueness shine through is what I hope to capture for you to treasure. I love hearing past clients tell me how I was able to really catch their child's personality in a photograph.
I look forward to getting to know you and your family, and watch you grow through the years!
