I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember, always photographing my friends and family. A few years ago, I found myself curious about documenting other people and their stories. So, my adventure in doing Storytelling Photography began and I fell in love. The experience of building relationships with my clients is amazing because I’m seeing how they spend their day and what they hold close to their heart and all the while, I’m able to freeze their special moments in time for them. And my kids are pretty much tired of me documenting their lives, for now anyway.
When looking to see what I hold closest to my heart, you’ll find me hanging out with my family or taking a drive, with camera in-hand of course. My family have become used to my frequent stops to photograph something interesting I spy when road tripping and have started pointing out things they think I would be interested in. My youngest has become our expert at finding beautiful light. I love when we slow life down like this together and hope they always remember to seek out the beauty and interest in their surroundings.
This is a little of my story I thought I’d share before I step back behind my camera and await the special opportunity to learn yours.
