Hello there, thank you for stopping by. I hope you took a moment to check out my information on the about page. If not, I will try to give you a little information here.
I love photography! How many times have you seen that on a website that belongs to a photographer?! Ha! Well, I really do (enough to drive my family crazy talking about it all the time!).I started dreaming of owning a photography business when I was in school in 1994 taking photography classes. I lost 13 years of opportunity and life due to a horrid, abusive relationship that kept me isolated from everything and everyone I loved.
Here and now, I have completely turned my life around. It's been 7 years and I have remarried, obtained 2 college degrees, and started my own business. The one thing that I cannot get back are the moments with my children that are trapped in my mind and can only come out in a story. Sometimes, words are not enough. Images, they give you so much more. I can picture in my head how it looked and felt to nurse my newborn in a life where nothing gave me happiness except the children I bore. Think for a moment if I had an image to go along with that memory. How amazing it would be to show it to my children and their children and talk about how incredible those seconds, minutes and hours were.
I grew up without grandparents. I can remember my Nanny, how she smelled, how lovingly she would pat my back and play with my hair. She left this world when I was 8. Now, I would love to have a tangible image of her doing one of those things.
I want to give you the tangible images I can never get back. To have a deep sense of loss and longing I bring forth emotion and dedication into each and every session.
I hope you continue to browse and let me know if you have any questions or if there is anything I can help you with.
Ok, so you looked at the photos, you like the images, you checked out that about page and blog (thank you for that!), and now you are interested in scheduling a session. You may still have reservations, burning questions you need to ask.
