I wish I had some cliche story about how I picked up a magical camera when I was young, and the skies opened, angels sang from the heavens, and I instantly found my calling. But the truth is I’m just a girl who figured out that taking pictures of people made me happy, and made them happy, too.
I picked up my first SLR camera (the film kind) back in high school and after years of photographing family and friends, I realized there was nothing I loved more than being behind a camera. I’ve been a professional portrait photographer for 5 years and I can’t imagine doing anything else.
My love of watching people connect with each other is what got me into family portraits. My photography style is vibrant and authentic. I believe the best family portraits are not made by someone saying cheese. They’re made when people are laughing, having fun, and living in the moment. So my goal for every family portrait session is to make it fun and stress-free.
Families are not always perfect. In fact, they’re NEVER perfect, and that’s what makes them beautiful. Every family I work with is unique and I love finding the little quirks that make each of them special.
