Why The Last Year Of My Life Matters To You
What an amazing ride this last year has been.
With many changes over the past year, I’ve been figuring out how to balance life/work better, which involves a lot less mindless scrolling and a lot more conscience decisions. It’s not easy, but I’m getting there!
While doing all of this reevaluating, I began thinking about the journey that I’ve been on and how so many life events have lead me to a passion I never dreamed of having.
My passion for photography was not something I was born with, but is now something that has become a major part of who I am.
“When I grow up, I’m going to be a vet.”
That was 8 year old me and 9 year old me and 10, 11, 12…
Needless to say, I never went on to vet school. I worked at an emergency vet clinic for 12 years as an assistant.
It wasn’t until I had my second Little that I began falling in love with photography.
After the clinic I worked at was bought out, my husband and I decided that was the final sign I needed to go ALL IN on this photography journey. I’ve never felt more certain about something in my life. It’s where I belong.
My heart is soooooo happy.
I have been blessed with a gift, driven by my creative brain, that allows me to capture the most mundane moments of our family’s life and turn it into something beautiful.
To see the world in such a way that no one else can see.
To freeze time and allow others to get a glimpse of what I view through my lens.
What makes this gift even more precious is being able to share it with people like you. To capture you in ways you never get to see for yourself.
The emotion, love, and connection that cannot be documented if you're the one behind the camera.
I’ve had the honor of working with some amazing families this past year. They’ve opened their doors and their hearts to a “not so traditional” take on Family Photography. Their words after their sessions have brought me to tears. You can read their “Kind Words”, too. It might help you better understand the process and how much they take away from the session. It’s not just about the perfect photograph. It’s about sooooo much more.
It’s time to embrace the chaos and bring in the love.
