Falling in love with photography happens differently for everyone. For me it began when I was young and started finding family photos scattered throughout the house. Aside from school photos hung on the walls, my parents hadn't had the time to tackle the daunting task of organizing the boxes of photos from birthdays, trick-or-treating, family reunions, baby's moments, and Christmas mornings. When I realized we had all of these photos I begged my mom to let me collect and organize the moments of our lives. I took over our dining room table for days pouring over every pool party laugh, sailing trip, and moments my brother and I had shared with my dad's father before he passed. Because my parents had photographed these moments I was able to piece together the story of my heritage. Those hours organizing photos stuck with me and to this day I continue to be the keeper of those neatly organized boxes.
Several years later I traveled to the Philippines on a missions trip and worked with groups of young children. At first sight of a camera the children would surround us giggling, insisting on having their picture taken. I began to realize that photographs are about so much more than being in front of a camera making silly faces, it speaks about our deepest desire to be recognized. To be remembered. Every couple, family, child, grandparent, etc. has a story to not only tell to those around them but also a story to capture and to share with generations to follow.
These experiences influence how I conduct photo sessions and I love getting the opportunity to know my clients. It's important for me to learn about you so I can help capture the moments you hold most precious - a baby's giggle, a graduation filled smile, or special moments shared between a couple. I'm interested in family, wedding, and business photography. Do you need a family photo for this year's Christmas cards?
