I know that choosing a photographer can be an overwhelming undertaking... trust me, I have been there myself. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you considering me in this process. Capturing our family memories through photographs has been very important to my husband and me. When we were searching for a family photographer, I scoured the internet and looked at every photographer within 100 miles of our home until I found the "right one" for us... a photographer who first and foremost fit our style and second someone who fit our budget (because if you hate the photos, a good bargain doesn't really matter).
I have been interested in photography for as long as I can remember. I took my first photography class when I was 15, and have been in love ever since. My passion was nature; I could not get enough of it. At 17 I sold my first photos and a business hobby began to form. Now, I have two small children that I photograph on a near daily basis and they have helped me transform that love of nature into a passion for children's photography. In my opinion, beauty in capturing the perfect smile or the love exuded between a parent and child can't be surpassed by all of the flowers in the world. Until now, I have spent the past four years photographing my own children and my friends' children; however, now that my husband has transitioned out of the Navy we are settling down and I finally have an opportunity to pursue my dream of having a photography business... in one permanent location!
So why choose me? As I searched for a photographer for our family, time and time again I was drawn to natural light photographers. Each and every photograph had a depth and beauty that is distinct from studio lighting. I fell in love with the style, and have shot with it ever since. Having two kids and trying to corral them for photos for everything from Christmas cards to Cake Smash Sessions has made me an expert at being ridiculous, being flexible, and having a great attention to detail in order to get that perfect smile. I love kids. I love photography. And I can't wait to meet you and your family!
