Thank you for wanting to learn more about who I am! I am a Christian, a wife, and a mother. I have a wonderful loving husband who has really completed me. In the encyclopedia under "opposites attract" there is a picture of my husband and me. I have the two sweetest kids in the world, Joee and Conner; they are my muses. I have been very blessed in love and family.
I fell in love with photography as a teenager- both aspects of the capture and the edit, but fell head over heels for it when my daughter was born in 2009. I love natural light photography, and I look at it as an art form that grows and changes with the artist. I tend to be a prop minimalist and a face photographer. I love capturing the personalities of "little monsters" and "little princesses". My goal as a photographer is to capture love. The love between a mother and her child, the love between your baby boy and his favorite toy, children's just plain love of life.
If you've gotten to this page, I expect that you're hoping to learn something about me. Not wanting to disappoint you, and wanting to appear rather awesome, I've compiled a list of 'must-knows'.
-I had a speech impediment as a child, which thank God for my mother pushing me, I got through by 5th grade. However due to the "sound it out" way the school system taught me to spell I am extremely bad speller. So please forgive my typos. As I am sure there will be many. :) If spell check misses it so do I.
-I couldn't decide what I loved more traveling or photography so I dream of doing both.
-I have a B.S. in International Studies and Pre-law and am a proud SPSU alumni! (No I didnt go to KSU :P )
-I am a wonderful combination of wit, loyalty, integrity, sass, and frankness. I have the smallest mind to mouth filter of anyone I know.
-I am an avid animal lover. I currently have 5 dogs . (4 that are rescue) I obviously have a problem here.
-If I won the lottery I wouldn't tell anyone, and I would still work. Some. Maybe. After traveling.
-There's more but I hear mystery is the key...
