I am a photographer. That was easy!
Hmm, I guess I can't just put that now can I??
I am little bit wacky...once you get to know me.
I like clean and simple but occasionally I like to throw in a hit of something else just to keep it interesting.
I have had a love of photography since I was 10 but never developed it into anything more than a love.
My son was born in 2006 which motivated me to do more with photography but it wasn't until my dad died suddenly in 2008 that photography became really important to me. I realized that I would never be in another picture with him, I would never get to take another picture of him. I also realized that when I had the chance I didn't really take pictures of my dad and as I result I didn't have many to remember him by.
It was from that point forward (and part of my healing) that I immersed myself in learning photography, from what ever sources, teachers, classes, books I could. Photography consumed me and in the process, I turned it into a little business.
I learned the hard way just how important pictures are. So now, not only do I try to take more pictures of my own family but of other peoples families as well.
I feel truly lucky that people trust me to capture the memories of their families, babies, bellies etc. I put my heart and soul into it for reasons they have no idea about and I kind of like it that way.
