Photography has been a huge part of my life since I was a young child. I started with purchasing disposable cameras and setting up backdrops to photograph my Barbies and cats. The cats were not thrilled to sport a baby bonnet, ha!
The decision to turn my love of photography into my career happened in the summer of 2010.
I was searching for someone to hire for my daughter's one year photos. After a very tiresome and unsuccessful search, I decided to use my skills and attempt her photos myself.
After sharing the photos on my personal Facebook page, I received a lot of messages from friends/family asking me if they could hire me.
A few months later I made the leap and started setting up and investing in my business.
After a few years of studying, investing in workshops and lots and lots of practice,
I finally found my style and decided to focus on newborn and child photography.
On top of being a photographer, I am also
a wife, mother and lover of coffee, wildflowers and The Office.
