I became interested in photography when my children started playing sports and I couldn't find a photographer that could capture the action shots that I wanted. My needs were specific -
I wanted to capture the ripple of their developing muscles, the joys of the goals and baskets, and the hard work of them and their team mates. I wanted to capture the moments of success and growth, the highs of the wins, the lows of the losses and the bond between teammates!
Living on a hobby farm, I started perfecting my skills on whatever I could find! Dogs, unsuspecting barn cats and even a surprised skunk became focal points for my photos. Then I started spending countless hours in arenas, pitches, and gymnasiums perfecting my craft. From there, it evolved into team pictures, weddings, delivery rooms, fun between friends, and countless other avenues where the goal was to celebrate the everyday beauty and successes of people's lives. Countless times I've heard "I look horrible in pictures" or "Put that away" when I point my lens at someone. Now, it's become a goal to showcase people and life's everyday beauty beyond the limit of personal opinion.
I strive to continue learning and growing in my craft. I enjoy taking workshops from my peers both online and in person and find myself continually learning new ideas! What are you waiting for? Let's capture your memories today!
