I record your memories for a lifetime

Looking back into my childhood I see that taking photos was a big part of my life. I used to set up and photograph my Barbie’s wedding, complete with a bouquet toss while holding the flowers in the air making sure it looked as though my Barbie really was chunking her bouquet to her BFFs. I used to dress up, pose and photograph my younger neighbors at the ripe ole’ age of EIGHT! As the years passed I would document my life with a camera, the way most young girls would… but never had an artistic vision. I started to really enjoy photography after (surprise surprise) the birth of my son in 2003, before photography was quite so ‘cool.’ I purchased my first DSLR in 2005 at Costco, you know the $1k kits they sold? From there I had a deeper desire to become ‘good’ at taking photos. In 2007 I snagged a second shooting gig with a local gal – Heather Essian and that’s when I learned the ins and outs of photography. Figuring out all of the technical jargon, photoshop and even what the heck manual mode meant. Through the years my shooting style has evolved, my editing has changed drastically and I am a much more confident photo-gal. I was teaching elementary school from 2006-2009 and was, fortunately, able to leave my job to pursue photography and motherhood. What a blessing it has turned out to be!
