Everybody always writes what they're known for on these things. I think I might actually be known for trying to stay out of the spotlight. So elusive. haha Oh, and for my addiction to yummy smelling bath stuff and colorful, shiny things.
I know, I know... I'm supposed to write about what I'm known for as a photographer. Tooting my own horn isn't my favorite thing, so I'll tell you about my favorite compliments I've received.
-I've never felt as comfortable in front of a camera as I do in front of yours-
-We like your wedding photography because it looks like it's about showing each couple and family in their own way-
The first awesome compliment was from a completely fantastic boudoir client and the second was from a new potential wedding client.
I love making beautiful things for you. I love when you feel great about yourself. I love making art with you. It makes me happy when people feel relaxed at a shoot. Even though I always shoot my way and edit my way, I like to maintain the overall feel of our shoot or your wedding. Because there's no shoot or wedding without you.
After the first wedding I ever did as a second shooter, I called my husband on the way home, and I was like...this...this is what I want to do forever...this is the absolute best thing. I leave weddings exhausted and happy. I love hanging out with your families, seeing how much they love you and how happy they are for you. I get to photograph all of that and make you beautiful art. Sign me up.
I love photographing women. Because we are badasses. We are amazing. Doing all the things we do. We deserve to be shown how fantastic we are and see our power in our own eyes. YES. All women. All of us.
I wasn't always a photographer. I used to be a geochemist. And I have a degree in Spanish. And I went to art school. These are stories for another time...
I'm a photographer, but I'm also a painter of colorful things, a mom to two wild boys, a wife, daughter, sister, friend, and goof. I wear galaxy shoes, jeans and geeky t-shirts, and I'm tattooed with uh... variable hair color. I love unicorns, sci-fi, and as I mentioned before, smelly bath stuff.
