Being pregnant was a true blessing, we were not only blessed with a son, but I was also one of the lucky woman to not get sick or have any severe or lasting symptoms, so I really had a chance to fully enjoy every aspect of being pregnant. I continued living life as best as I could the same way I did before I learned I was pregnant, which kept me healthy and my weight gain under control. Becoming a mother is an indescribable feeling, the love you feel for your child is a feeling that can’t be put into words. Watching our son grow and develop everyday brings so much joy and laughter to my husband and I, being parents is a true gift.
I’ve always loved taking pictures; my friends jokingly called me “the paparazzi.” But after the birth of my son and the hundreds of expressions, moments, and milestones I wanted to capture I realized I wasn’t satisfied with my images. And so began my journey to learn photography: books, tutorials, classes, just about any source I could glean information from. And the more I learned the more captivated I was by the world of photography. And I realized how much more I have to learn and how far I have to go. Photography is my creative outlet; a way to express myself and show the beauty I see in a newborn’s feet, a child’s smile, and the love between a family. Everywhere I look, I see beautiful images: my daughter splashing in puddles, my son with pure concentration in his face as he writes his name, the softness of a baby’s features when they’re deep in sleep. I could go on and on, but my point is that there’s beauty in everyone and in the little things we do everyday with our loved ones. I strive to connect with my clients in order to photograph their true style and personality. My goal is the capture that individual, natural beauty and give my clients a timeless memory that they can cherish forever.
