"Photography is nothing...it's life that interests me."
Real life is interesting. I enjoy life. Beautiful stories surround us everyday. When I first became a mom, I wished that I had a photographer with me all day and any time I wanted to capture those unforgettable moments (sleepy eyes, pouty lips and mischievous smiles) I would just let my personal photographer take over with lightning speed and of course, always paying close attention to the lighting.
Well, we all know that's not possible, but what I did start thinking about was how important it is to capture every day life--not just the dressed up, posey stuff. Yes, beautifully posed, perfectly lit portraits are amazing and necessary--but documenting life, laughter and the natural beauty that every soul possesses is, to me, what my this business is all about.
Every family tells a wonderful story of their history; Every wedding is made up of vivid colors and characters too beautiful not to chronicle; Every phase a child goes through cries out to be remembered. That is what I love about photography. It'll be gone before we all know it. "Important yesterdays were once todays. Cherish today." (Gloria Gaither)
It is important to me that generations from now, my great grandchildren know not only what we looked like but that we had fun together, deeply loved each other and most importantly set the foundation for future generations of loving families.
