I am a natural light, lifestyle photographer with over 20 years of experience. A bit about me: I specialize in families, children, and business photography, shooting on location, or in your home. I am all about the client who isn’t afraid to get a bit messy, have a little fun, and embrace authentic moments. I believe in capturing the art of the every day in my images. I love taking the time to learn who you are and to learn your story so that I can create images that speak to you.
My photographic journey began with a camera and an amazing photography class. I have always had a creative side, but I couldn’t paint or draw, so I never felt that I had “my” creative outlet, until that magical class. In this class I discovered that I had a story to tell and I loved the process of seeing that story come to life in the images that I took. I enjoyed seeing how this form of expression, was as much a form of art as any painting or drawing was.
From there my passion was born. I began taking as many photography classes as I could and practicing on any willing subject. With the birth of my sons my business was born. Not only did I want to take photos of my kids and to tell their stories, but I wanted to tell other people’s stories as well.
About ten years ago, some friends of mine asked me to help them learn how to use their cameras. Well, who knew…not only did I have a passion for taking photos and telling stories, but I also had a passion for teaching people in an easy, understandable way, to use their cameras. One of the best feelings is having someone leave their first photography class, saying, “I had no idea that I could learn so much in such a short amount of time!”
I’d love to show you how easy taking better photos can be.
