When our first child was born everyone said “just wait, you’ll blink and she’ll be 18.” While she’s not yet 18, time is flying by and I am so thankful for the trail of photographs marking our family path! We now have been blessed with 4 kiddos, and everyday is an adventure at our house! While each day is not perfect and may not even be “photo worthy” I am hanging on to every moment and want to capture every facial expression, ornery look, smile, frown, chubby hand, twinkling eye…
As for me, I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I believe every life is a gift. And I believe we were all created for a purpose. I am truly blessed with my family and people who have influenced my life. I am thankful for the opportunity I have been given through this photography business and am amazed with the beauty I get to see through my lens.
As for photography, I am a natural light photographer. What does that mean? I will rarely use a flash. I like to be outside. Of course, if you have a newborn, I will come to your house while the baby is small and capture those images inside. But for larger groups and most other shots, unless you have big windows and a lot of indoor space- plan on being outside. I won't pose you- that makes you look uncomfortable. I might give you some suggestions, but I like it when you are relaxed so you look like- you!
It is my hope to create a fun, relaxing atmosphere where you and your family feel comfortable so I can capture you the way that you are today. It is my goal to capture the moments before you *blink* so you have your memories on art and not just in your mind. Thank you for allowing me to see a glimpse of who your family is today to capture it in a photograph for you to enjoy for years to come!
