I’m a long time lover of art and seeing beauty in the world. Even before I was thinking about having my own little bundle, I was drooling over Anne Geddes and her amazing ablitiy to capture squishy new lives in peapods and rose petals. I took photography in school and was so excited about being able to capture emotions and feelings in photographs. I love that. When you look at a picture, you are taken back to those times and those feelings. They (who every they is) say ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ and as much as I am a lover of words, I love images that speak for themselves, that tell a story, and make you feel.
I’m also a mom, so seeing the world through little eyes has been an amazing adventure. Everyone was always telling me how fast it all goes and how I needed to keep those precious memories. So, I started taking pictures of every little detail. I fell in love with his little toes all over again, the wrinkles in his eyes when he smiles, his chubby little thighs. Now he’s a kid, running around and making me laugh and I’m so grateful for all of those moments leading up to now, frozen in time for me to weep over when I feel he’s gotten too big.
Combining two things I love dearly (making beautiful art and witnessing amazing new life), I decided to take a leap and start my own photography business. And let me tell you, it’s been an incredible journey.
I’m very unserious, I laugh and I dance around my house to music. I use a lot of parenthesis (I like to add tiny bits of info here and there) and exclamation points! Not because I’m loud, but because I’m enthusiastic. I love to run around with my son Jesse and catch up on my DVR’d shows with my husband. I love cooking, eating, drinking coffee and wine, singing, reading and writing. I like to try to stay fit by running, swimming and doing yoga (that doesn’t mean I don’t love junk food, because french fries and chocolate chip cookies are my two biggest weaknesses!)
I also love:
- Coffee Mugs
- Rainy days
- Lists (haha!)
- Singing in the car, in my house, during sessions…
- Nail Polish
- Sweets! (Reese’s are my all time favorite candy)
- Inspirational quotes
- Sticky notes
- Key changes in songs
- Creating art in pretty much any outlet
While I’m editing, I listen and sing along to a lot of different types of music, so I love to blog about what I’m doing and what I’m listening to.
These are my fantastic guys who make up my whole world:
So let’s go grab a cup of something caffeinated and sit down for a chat!
