Hello! Thanks for checking out my website. Feel free to browse around and contact me if you have any questions! I'm excited to share this journey with you! Thank you for your support and love.
I want to add an awesome story of how I got my first camera and I loved it and my entire life changed the moment I saw my images printed for the first time... but my story isn't so cookie cutter. I actually did get my own 35mm camera when I was nine for Christmas. It's the one thing I asked for, and I was so excited. I didn't get any film with it though, and I know it was a rather expensive gift for my dad, at the time. I could wait though, because I could still push all the buttons and pretend. (Hey, I said I was nine didn't I?) Well, I grew up in a house full of boys. Leave it to them to turn the house upside down Christmas night rough-housing. What, you may ask, was the ONLY item that took permanent damage? (I think the answer here should be obvious if you're actually following this story.) Yep, it was my camera. There were no funds to replace it. (I'm pretty sure I just decided I'm still mad at my brothers, in case you were wondering.) So that was that. It would be years until I put another camera in my hands. My freshman year in high school actually. And it was all up hill from there.
I've been taking pictures ever since and it was my passion way before it was my job. I didn't want photography to lose it's appeal once it became a job. I held onto that fear for a long time. Now that I've let it go, gotten some proper training, and fully equipped myself, I can't imagine what life would be like without it. I'm not just a mom with a nice camera, I'm a photographer with a vision.
