I didn’t seek out photography as much as it found me. The inspiration behind my business and why I started this journey is my first born child, Cade.
Cade was diagnosed with autism at 17 months, to do even the most simple task with him at a young age was pretty impossible. I realized quickly if I was getting any sort of photos of him growing up, I was taking them myself...we WERE NOT going to a studio. So I went old school and used my love of B&W photography and just started documenting his life...in a very unobtrusive and voyeuristic sort of way but the results were so real...so him. This amazing child grew and progressed and became verbal and then he started to look at me when I took his picture.
I had an office job at the time, people at work would see the photos I took of my son and ask me if I could take photos of their children...and that is how a little idea I had about taking pictures of my son grew into my business today.
Today my family has grown I have now three beautiful children ~ Cade, Reese and Jael ~ they are my biggest inspirations and show me how to have the patience, creativity and drive I need to capture the images I am trying to create.
I enjoy photographing children, families and love when they include their pets. Events, special occasions and all momentous moments are treasures and I am honored each time I am asked to document one for you. I love meeting and connecting with my clients and telling their story through my lens.
