My love-affair with photography goes all the way back to my childhood, when I would snap away on a Kodak Advantix 3100AF as a little girl. I eventually found myself working in nursing and feeling creatively unsatisfied when I discovered my dream job: wedding photography. I loved how the artform combined everything I was always subconsciously drawn to: storytelling, photography, creativity, and human connections.
All of it empowers me to be a better, more well-rounded person, and I always aspire to let an unspoken thread of humanity shine through in my images. More than anything, I want to live life freely and beautifully and use my art form to encourage others to do the same. If not, what is this all for?
As a mom, I’ve discovered a new level of love and empathy that makes me an even more tuned-in and aware photographer. (Anything involving a parent’s perspective at your wedding is guaranteed to make me shed a tear as I snap away.) I’m also in constant awe of makers and artists—there’s just something about creating exceptional beauty from a blank canvas that will forever mesmerize me. I love learning from my fellow creatives and always work to not just deliver images, but true art.
