I am a photographer. But if you’ve made it this far you already know that. Here’s a few things you may not know yet.
I am a wife to an amazingly patient man, a mom to two very busy kids and one dangerously curious but sweet cat.
Before my kids became picky eaters I loved to cook. Now you find a frequent rotation of chicken nuggets and spaghetti on our dinner table.
I’m not a fan of coffee - unless it’s in ice cream form. I can’t explain this but have taken much grief for it from family and friends. My morning drink of choice is tea, usually green or chai.
Music is always playing in my office, car, kitchen, on the deck, or just about anywhere else I can take it. At one point I thought I wanted to be a music therapist and while I didn’t end up getting my degree in music therapy the ability for music to influence my mood and day is something I draw on frequently.
You will find lists all over my desk - mostly because I like to check things off. I’ve been known to add something to a list just so I can check it off. Let’s be honest - it also makes the list look better the more stuff I have checked off!
I firmly believe you learn something new everyday. If you stop to really think about your day, you probably learn multiple things. I love the process of learning new skills. I frequently research and practice new things that I can implement to make my life or business better.
What drives my photography is capturing the unique story of each person I photograph. The growing confidence of teens, the excitement of a high school senior about to launch into a new chapter in their life, or the stories that connect a small business to their clients. This all starts with developing a strong connection between photographer and subject.
I love most anything creative - music, art, dance. These things continue to influence me every day. In fact, music is almost always playing in my house or car. Similar to color, I think music can change a mood or enhance a story. Just don’t ask me to sing - it’s not pretty.
I can’t wait to get to know what makes you unique. Give me a call or contact me through my website so we can get to know each other better.
