I have always been a girl in a love affair with a camera. Put one in my hands and I’m immediately more confident, creative and push myself to get that perfect shot. I love capturing the world one frame at a time. Holding onto moments and memories with the click of a shutter.
I love weddings, I adore love. Two families coming together in celebration of love is always a wonderful thing. Simple glances and gestures that happen when people are surrounded by the ones they cherish extend to everyone around them. I love being able to share in that joy and capture it through my photography.
I am a mother to two sweet boys, and married to the love of my life, Jason. Part of my passion for photography stems from my love of photographing my own children. Capturing their personalities, their smallness and who they are in each moment. I never realized how quickly childhood passes until I had sons of my own. My time with them seems ever more fleeting and I treasure the images I have that remind me who they are, and were.
I'm a somewhat lapsed world traveler, a little horse crazy, and I've found friends in many of the books I've read. I'm a firm believer in family, traditions and Christmas. I believe laughter can fix almost anything and I am lucky to be surrounded by it more often than not.
I have been lucky enough to have a wonderful friend and mentor in Jessica Vogelsang. She has encouraged and helped hone my photography skills and I wouldn't be where I am now if it weren't for her. Much of my work on these pages has been created with her. Please check out her wonderful site here.
Above is my life, in photograph.
