About the Artist
I am quickly approaching the big 4-0, later this year. I am a wife of almost 18 years to my best friend. Mom of 4. (yep... 4), and mom of 3 four legged pups. Needless to say I'm busy. If I wasn't busy, I would be bored. I have been a full time photographer for almost 13 years. I find this a huge accomplishment because this business/industry is tough and most don't make it past 5. For most of my photography career, I worked out of my home so I could raise our four kids. It was some of my most challenging, yet rewarding years. So many late nights and early mornings. You really learn a lot about your skills in time management. A lot of photographers do this, and I hope if you are their client, please bring some grace with you. It's a tough job.
Last year (2020) I took the leap into a brick and mortar. With my youngest now in school full time, I was READY to get OUT OF My House and really focus on separating work time and family time. I LOVE It! Most photographers will tell you in their bios about how passionate they are about photography. I'd be lying if I went on and on about it being a passion. (By the way, I'm a truth girl... !).
What I love about this business is the people I meet. I also embrace the struggle, the triumphs, the success and the failures. I feel like all of it is a constant lesson. Of COURSE I love coming up with new ideas, photoshoots, imagery and settings. I love that no two days are the same for sure.
I have a very short attention span (ask my husband). I'm always on time. If I'm not early, I'm late. There are parts of my life that are very type A, but most of it is flexible and go with the flow. I've learned raising 4 kids, that you need to be flexible and think about your expectations.
If you've made it this far, congratulations. I wouldn't have even made it this far.. remember my attention span? Most of my posts are short, sweet, and to the point. Just like me.
NEW for 2021, I'll be sending out Monthly. (Or honestly every other month) newsletters! If you'd like to be added, please go subscribe! (Up in the tabs!). You'll be the FIRST to know about upcoming sessions, sales, new products and more. Thanks for reading... Hope I get to photograph you this year!!
