I know every episode of 'I Love Lucy' by heart & still laugh out loud. My favorite foods are mac'n'cheese & Thai. I absolutely love traveling. Seeing different places on our Earth & learning all about different cultures than my own makes life way more meaningful for me. I love the ocean & you can usually find me being a beach bum if the sun shining. I'm a hopeless romantic for sure. And I'm just madly in love with life.
HOW I BECAME THE GIRL WITH THE CAMERA...
It all started when I was a kid myself & loved taking care of babies. I actually thought getting to give a baby a bottle and change a diaper was a privilege! Gag, right? Needless to say, moms loved having me around. I discovered the camera as a teenager & it was love at first sight! I mean, there's a small little black box that you can push a button on & it freezes a moment forever. It captures life. It paints with light. How could I not be in love?! I started taking photography classes in high school, became the yearbook photographer & got nicknamed "paparazzi" by all of my friends. I took pictures of everything! Especially my baby sister who was born when I was 17! When I got to college, I was excited about my decision to study Psychology with an emphasis in Child Development. I was a preschool teacher while studying &, believe it or not, that's when the magic happened. One morning, my student's mama said to me, "your photography is beautiful & the kids already feel comfortable with you... why don't you come over & take some family pics of us?" And just like that, word spread and everyone around was asking me to capture their family on film.
Here we are more than 10 years later! My heart is so full. I could not feel more lucky that I get to combine my two passions & do what I truly love everyday. Thank you to everyone who has supported my artwork! I promise to continue to push myself creatively & grow as an artist so that I can capture the love in your family in the most artful ways.
PHOTO SESSIONS WITH ME...
If you're looking for a photographer who will just show up with a camera, pose you & yell "say cheese", I'm not your gal. Once you book a photo session with me, we will begin the fun process of styling your shoot! I don't stick to one style, because every family is so different. I want to hear all about you guys & make the right artistic choices to create a day that you will enjoy & look back on the memories of. Tell me your story so that I can capture it on film for you. It's all about having fun! We're here to celebrate life & photograph all the yummy in it. Laugh, dance, cuddle, be yourselves. My camera & I will do the rest of the work ;)
This really is an investment in your life. Time is something you never get back & I love nothing more but to capture your happy times.
