Hello all!!!!!! It's been a long time since I did any type of intro...of course you CAN go to my ABOUT page and read BUT, lets do something fresh, updated and more personal!!! :)
All photographers start with something in mind when we picked up that camera for the first time, but me, I picked it up to tell a story. A story of a childhood. My favorite thing in the world to do everytime I went to my grandparents as a child was to look at their childhood photo albums. We would even break out our own photo albums of our childhood frequently and still to this day enjoy going through them (and now our kids love to look at us when we were little too!) I get to peek in the past, I see a story....I see my grandmother who is now in her late 70's was once a vibrant/beautiful and wild young woman..and there are photos to prove it (Mind you...this woman is still vibrant/wild AND beautiful)!!! I LOVE that! So for me...picking up my camera with the intention of actually making something from these photographs was all about telling a story. I intend to tell there story...through my eyes. Which of course blossomed. It turned into a love for telling other people's stories as well. I get to meet and snuggle those sweet little miracles and ensure I preserve every single detail. I was never quiet sure how I found newborn photography..but, maybe I didn't..maybe it found me. I always knew what I didn't want to do when it came to photography and just like that I developed a love and passion for photographing these beautiful precious moments. This job has given me a different perspective and appreciation to motherhood/childhood and time. I have realized time is fleeting. I have three children...three beautiful little boys who keep my on my toes, with a messy house and a crazy mom bun 24/7. They have given me a passion for life...a passion for a career and a passion for telling stories. I do it all because of.....them.
I love coffee..... I can't even function with out it in the morning. Im assuming it has something to do with the 3 kids 5 and under aspect of my life right now..but, the smell..the taste and everything starts my day oh so perfectly. I love the mountains..I love the beach. Fall is my favorite time of year. Sweet tea, Chick Fil A and chips and salsa are my weaknesses (I am currently working on this). I hate Monday's. Burgundy and Black are my favorite colors. Baths over showers. Yoga pants and date nights with the hubs push me through the week.
Hope you enjoyed!!!! What are some of your favorite things??
