What inspired you to be a photographer?
Parenthood. I have always had an interest in photography, but didn’t consider it more than a hobby until I became pregnant with our first child. I realized a desire to preserve the special moments of our journey to parenthood and beyond, so I started taking photography classes and attending workshops. This is when I truly fell in love with the art of photography! My husband says I became obsessed with it, but I do not obsess. I became passionate about it.
What do you hope to accomplish through your photography?
Two things. To preserve the special moments, and to help others see how beautiful they are.
What is your favorite genre to shoot?
This is a difficult question for me to answer, and it can change from time to time. If I had to choose one today, I’d say engagements are my favorite… today.
Provide 3-6 images you love and represent your photographic style...
Put together an outfit for a client that you would love to phootgraph from our online store.
A senior or mom can wear this fabulous outfit to a photoshoot! In fact, I think I am going to buy this outfit for myself now.
