I have own my own photography business since 2004. In those years I have learned so much and grown both professionally and personally. Each new life experience brings me a new way to approach my photography. I used to say my passion was animals. I still adore animals. Pets make life so fun and their unconditional love is something I can’t do without.
Over the years my life has come to a new place. June 25, 2009 my husband I lost our first child, Mamie. She was born a sleeping angel when I was 37 1/2 weeks pregnant. This great loss has brought me a new perspective on life which has spilled over into all aspects of who I am. I look at each day, each experience, with new eyes. Mamie is our child whether she is here on this earth or not, so please feel free to ask me about her. Just as you like to talk about your little ones, I love to talk about Mamie. If you are interested in her story you can link to my poppy seed blog. It’s all about Mamie and the process I have gone through during my happy and easy pregnancy to the place I am now as a grieving mother who is carrying on in honor of my child.
I approach my work differently because of my new perspective. I look for the unique parts of each idividual and their situation and do my best to capture that. I love working with couples who are so in love they can’t see straight and newborn babies whose parents are so in love THEY can’t see straight, or little kids as they play with their favorite toy or pet or as they read their favorite book. It all makes my heart swell. It is life. Each new moment in life is what we make it and I want to take it all in. I want to document the most special days and the most ordinary because they are all priceless.
All sessions are photographed on location in order for me to capture life as it happens most comfortably for my clients. I encourage you to just be yourself and allow your little ones to do the same. It will be a fun experience and create images that will be most uniquely you.
