I could write the standard introduction about how I love photography (which I do) and how I always knew this is what I wanted to do, but I can't say that because I haven't always had it figured out. So, I thought I would write something a little more personal for you.
I love waking up next to my husband. He is the most amazing, hard working man I've ever met. After 10 years of being together, we still go on dates, snuggle and hold hands. We are blessed with two daughters, and I love everything about being a mom. The sleepless nights, the soccer games and grass stains, I love it all!
My favorite thing to do is travel, I have a long list of adventures to go on. If you have been anywhere amazing, write me and tell me about it so I can add it to my list!
I am a graduate of Penn State University (Main Campus Class of 2010). I worked on campus the entire time I was a full time student. Reading and learning is something I absolutely love doing, call me a nerd, that is totally fine with me, I own it! Participating in THON was a life changing experience for me. My favorite memory at Penn State was when they called my name to walk for my diploma, I remember, I looked up and saw my daughter watching me.
In my soul, I am a true creative. I love the arts in all forms, especially photography, film and theatre. My intention is to create something that it touches your soul. I wear my heart on my sleeve and I am not afraid to admit that I cry at weddings.
I have been saved by amazing grace. I am not above sitting down in the street next to a homeless man and asking him to tell me his story and treating him as an equal while he eats the food I gave him. I love praying with the homeless. We can learn so much from people who don't rely on this world to be happy. Don't ever be afraid to have integrity, and never be ashamed to pray.
Cooking, I LOVE it! I am a foodie, plain and simple. I would rather stay at a boutique hotel and go across the street and eat jerk chicken that is cooked in a 50 gallon barrel than stay at an all-inclusive resort. I don't like pizza, or fast food, however, thanks to my husband, I am on the hunt for the worlds best burger, I try one everywhere I go! Oh, and we don't eat at chain restaurants hardly at all!
The beach is the most peaceful place in the world to me. One of the things we do is take our girls to a different beach every year, so far, Seven Mile Beach in Negril, Jamaica has won my heart.
My movie and music taste is very eclectic, I love 'em all! You will find everything from Billy Joel to Avenged Sevenfold in my playlist. My favorite genre of movies is action/adventure, thanks in large part to having 4 brothers and being a daddy's girl growing up. Top Gun and The Departed are my favorite movies! Ok, let's not forget Star Wars...
Something interesting? I am a certified substitute teacher, and I love teaching children! Sometimes I even get to be my daughters' teacher!
I have been truly blessed to be able to say I am doing a job I love. A job that doesn't seem like a job at all. I get to create memories for people, and document some of the most amazing moments of their life. The love and support I have received from my husband to turn my passion into a business has been something that I will remain forever grateful for. One day, I hope to return the favor to him.
Learning and perfecting my art is something I do on a continuous basis. I travel the world to train and educate myself so I can be sure to bring my absolute best to the table for every client. I will never stop learning and growing, because I respect this art for what it is, and one day I hope to be able to say I am a master of light.
