To put a long and ongoing story short- YOU are my why. I'm a people person and an artist. Photography started out as a hobby so that I could create and connect with my friends. Then after a few less-than-optimal experiences of my own in front of the camera, it became a way for me to positively impact my community and help others capture their own stories in a beautiful way. These skills are also helpful within my own family as I document my husband's journey through medical school and the adventures of our little one.
From the first kiss as "spouse" at your wedding, to when you bring your new born home, to each year when you go through the stress of coordinating for family pictures and wonder "why do I do this every year..." I am there for you (and have tips and tricks to make it less stressful!). Photography has not only brought me a sense of fulfillment through art but it has brought me connection to the culture, community, and world around me. I have a deeper appreciation for life through the stories that I get to capture.
