I can't fully say where my "photography story" truly began... I've always taken photos, as long as I and any one of my close loved ones can remember. Friends could always count on me to have a cheap, disposable camera in my purse, ready to catch those fun, fleeting moments as they unfolded in our young, carefree lives. To this day, I have stacks upon stacks of old photos of friends and family that I cherish more than I can express. Loved ones no longer with us, friends that have long moved away and begun new lives... I was there, documenting it on film. I'm so grateful for that time.
Now, I have the ability to do that for others. I'm able to capture moments that, unfortunately, only last for a second and then are gone in the twinkle of an eye. It's incredible to watch the love bloom within a precious couple in their engagement session, witness their vows of dedication for each other on their wedding day, and then photograph the same couple as they grow their families and welcome new, little loves into their lives.
I'm so honored to share these moments with new friends, entrusting me with their precious memories. I get to help people create stacks upon stacks of cherished photos, still documented on film.
I don't want to just take your photo - I long to tell your beautiful story through my lens.
