So how do I share with you a little about me...I could start the way most women define themselves...wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. And although I am all of those things, I don't think that is what you really care about! You are here because something in one of the images you saw made you stop and want to learn a little about me!
Here it goes...
I am a professional photographer! I don't do photography as a hobby! I actually went to school and learned as much as I could about the thing I love doing! I do think this is important to know because there are tons of so-called "photographers" out there. This tends to blur the lines of "hobbyist photographer" and "professional photographer". Not that schooling makes you a professional. What does make you a professional is pouring yourself into what you want to learn, challenging yourself and learning all you can continuously about it. And that is what I strive to do all the time.
I love photography! I love knowing that an image I create will bring joy to others for a lifetime. I remember as a little girl sitting at the foot of my grandma's bed and looking through all the photos she had of her past. It was special, hearing all the stories that one photo would bring back to her mind. The thought of being part of that for others excites me immensely.
So, what do I love to photograph...well I wish I was one of those photographers that specialized in one thing...but the truth is I love shooting everything! If someone forced to choose one thing, I would have to say, PEOPLE, I love shooting people! I am a true extrovert! I love people and getting to know them. I like sitting and talking...it completely energizes me! So, when I have the opportunity to photograph families, newborns, couples, weddings, and boudoir, I do it! I also, love socializing so events and commercial work. I thrive on getting my creative juices flowing. I have been featured in multiply magazines, including cover pages. I have worked with some amazing companies that are trailblazing in the world of business.
My second passion in life is traveling! I can never get enough of seeing the world. Meeting people of different cultures and backgrounds is simply pure joy to me. I love stopping and getting to know a new part of the world and the people that make it different from mine!
So, as you can tell I love what I do for a living! I pour that into all of my images! I have been blessed with photography and hope to be able to bless you with those photos!
If you want to know more, I look forward to hearing from you soon!
