I wasn’t sure what to do with my hands, and felt awkward and nervous. But once I started photography as a profession I found myself in front of the camera more, and as I did I started learning what it takes to feel comfortable, natural and how to get the genuine personalities of the people that I work with.
You can see emotions in a deeper way through a frozen moment in time than even possible when you’re living the moment. There are so many parts to events like weddings or your senior year that you don’t want to miss out on.

But with photography you truly do get the full experience of your most special day.
Once I really got into it I fell in love with the fact that I can tell a story just from an image.
I’m a full time boy mom when I’m not with my camera at a session and love our “adventure days” where we head out into nature to explore and discover new roads and places.
When my husband and I first met, I placed him firmly in the friend zone because he was a youth pastor and I wasn’t sure I was ready for that life, but Kyle has always been up for a challenge, and I changed my stance after a couple months of “just friends.”
I adore animals and grew up on a farm. Although I now live in a cute little neighborhood, I’ve been slowly changing our property to the more rural side by adding gardens, chickens and a dog. Perhaps I’ll eventually talk Kyle into a cat…
