"You don't make a photograph just with a camera.
You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen,
the books you have read,
the music you have heard,
the people you have loved."
Who am I? I am an artist. It took me a while to get comfortable with that idea and the messy brain that comes along with it. I love to find beauty in my surroundings. When I can take inspiration and create with it, that's where I am truly in my element. The number of half projects around my house are too many to count.
I am a mom. A mama to a delightfully sweet and strong minded daughter who has redefined me as a person. You will see her sweet face plastered all over my website. I've always had a pretty strong idea of my style, but photographing her is what allows me to focus on the kind of photography I truly want to offer to my clients, those moments of real life. There is nothing better on this planet then her unabashed laughter.
I'm a wife. A wife to a very non-artistic husband who supports my every crazy idea, my every junker find, my every stop for 'just one photograph'. He's my true partner in this crazy adventure we call life. I'm a Virginia girl, he's a Brit. We took a leap and moved to the mountains. Colorado is where we've come to call home and I don't think we'll ever leave!
I travel, I snowboard, I hike, and I love good food. I love that my day starts with my daughter's smiling face and ends with her soft snores. Give me a hazelnut coffee and Pinterest and I could daydream for days.
