What should clients expect when working with you?
When working with me you can expect your experience to be like hanging out with a friend. One that likes to direct, be super picky about details, be creative, laugh, and talk and make a fool of herself in any way needed to make your kids smile.
3. Why (or how) did you get into photography?
I come from a bit of an older generation (I’m 41) and when I was trying to figure out what to do with my life professionally I never in a million years thought my hobby of photography was the answer. Being a professional ‘creative’ was something not encouraged or that common when I was in school. But in Nov 2009, my sister in law said ‘Hey, you should do one of those Groupon things!’ I threw caution to the wind and that Groupon made me $9,000 in one day. I quit my serving job that week and decided to give photography everything I had and I never looked back. The next 5 years were some of the hardest and most rewarding years of my life to date.
4. How would you describe your photographic style?
I use the word ‘variation’ a lot when talking about my photography. Because I am self-taught, I have tried a lot of different styles of photography over the years and I have naturally created a bit of a hybrid mish-mash style of my own that sets me apart from others. I love to take candid and lifestyle shots but I also love a good smiley looking at the camera photo. Overall I would say my photos capture a family in a variety of moods that range from fun, warm, energetic, real, and loving!
