Behind the camera is my HAPPY-place, & I hope that the JOY it brings me shines forth in my photos. The passion I have for photography was passed down to me from the generations before me... My grandfather & my mom LOVED photography too. Since they are no longer here to share this JOY with me, it is a true HONOR to continue the HERITAGE that they passed down to me. And now, my own little girl LOVES taking photos & maybe one day her & I can do this together!
When I'm not behind the lens, I enjoy spending time with my family & traveling. My beverages of choice are caramel macchiattos, pumpkin spice lattes, sweet tea & Pinot Noir. My fun-loving, little girl is my PRIDE & JOY & she is the inspiration that drives me to capture special moments for other families. I am so thankful for the many MEMORIES I've captured of her through the years.
I mostly focus on boutique children's photography, but when my schedule is free, I am open to discuss family sessions, weddings, & other types of photo-shoots. I love traveling & incorporating my sessions into the "skyline" of the cities I venture to... Washington D.C., Chicago & Dallas to name a few. **Ask me about the perk involved for you if you are the FIRST to bring me to your "skyline"!**
Over the years, I have discovered the JOY of dressing up my little girl & taking her out for a fun photoshoot. She twirls, she sings... & I capture it! She helped flame the passion for this type of photography.
I consider my work "boutique" in nature because I create unique pieces of art for you through my creative editing process. My goal is quality, not quantity. My delivered products are high-end photos, printed on quality paper with sturdy backing, & framed to your standards & specifications. My goal is for you to have these treasured photos for years to come. Let's get the photos off your computer & on to something more tangible that others can also enjoy. We'll work together to create special heirlooms for you to pass down through the generations!
During each session, I try to make each chlld feel like it is their special day - I hope to have FUN & bring out their WONDERFUL personaility!
Through the years, I've had the HONOR of photographing many exciting things (Weddings, Engagements, Families, etc.), but as I grow as a photographer, I continue to discover my "niche" and what brings out the BEST in my work. When I first started taking photos, I did a little bit of everything while trying to figure out what it was I wanted to specialize in. What I've realized over time, is that the more I enjoy what I work on, the more I am able to give my best toward my work, & ultimately, that will be reflected in the great photos I give to my clients.
While I don't spend the majority of my time marketing these other types of sessions anymore (besides family mini-sessions twice a year), it is still an honor anytime someone asks me to photograph their wedding or engagement, or asks me to take photos of their family. I still love meeting new people, taking referrals & doing other types of sessions... what can I say, any excuse to get behind the camera!
If you are interested in having me photograph a wedding, engagement, or family session, PLEASE reach out to me.
If I have the availability, I'd love to talk!
