My love of capturing both everyday life and special moments has been with me since my childhood. That love only became greater when I had children and started taking pictures of their everyday life. I would spend countless hours putting together albums and scrapbooks. The idea was that one day they would look at those albums and see themselves through my eyes. I never for a second considered myself a photographer. After all, my pictures were taken with a disposable camera that I would then take to a local photo printer. In 2012, my life took a little detour and the path I had set for myself changed. It got me thinking about what I love and what brings me joy. And what I love is taking pictures, creating albums, and documenting those moments that may seem so little but are SOOOO big. I started taking photography classes, walking around with my camera everywhere I went, taking pictures, reading blogs, anything that would help me to one day be "good enough" to call myself a professional photographer. That journey lasted five years and I'm excited to say that fear finally got out of my way and that I took the leap to do what I love. I look forward to capturing that love and joy that is found in family and to be able to share that gift with you.
