When I was in grade school, I used to keep an ‘Amelia’s Notebook’ style marble composition diary where I would detail my days with long entries, complete with film photographs and random objects taped on the pages. As an adult, these passages are incredibly entertaining to read through now. Of course, my elementary school rhetoric is amusing, but browsing through the photos also allows me to relive experiences from the past. I’m grateful that I was so diligent about preserving those moments that I thought worthy of documenting.
In the process of growing up, marrying, and having children, I’ve continued to preserve my personal memories in photographs. The joy of my own wedding day, those first few nervous days at home with a newborn, and the adventure of watching my kids grow up…looking back and reminiscing on those images fills me with gratitude and a sense of the goodness of life.
This is my hope for you.
I go into every single session with the goal of creating something beautiful with my clients. It is my hope that when you look back on the photographs we took together, you remember the same emotion and joy that you felt when they were taken.
The absolute best things about doing photography are the people I’ve been able to meet and the relationships I’ve formed while making beautiful images. I consider my business to be relational and extremely personal. I have worked with so many couples, families, and individuals who have become friends over the years. I believe that making those connections allow for meaningful and intimate photographs.
