This had to be my calling. Acting, making people laugh from the stage, and then teaching the next generation to do the same felt so right… right?
Wrong. Something was missing. That’s when I realized that while performing on stage made me happy, and college is what everyone else did… it wasn’t right for me.
I felt lost. I wasn’t inspired to become an educator, and I didn’t know what I wanted to do. Then a crazy turn of events led to me picking up my camera and photographing a wedding for a friend of a friend – and everything fell into place.
The excitement she had when she saw the photos gave me a joy I’d never experienced. She said something that stuck with me, “You made taking photos fun!”
And that fun became the core value of my business. I want to help every bride feel the way that first bride did – excited and proud of every image in their gallery. My clients have fun and feel confident in front of my camera, and that makes all the difference.
This business, this lifestyle, heck even this career choice was never something I thought I was capable of creating.
Photography was always something I did for fun here and there, but I had dreams of graduating college and eventually starting a family.
My true passion was education and helping people feel comfortable being themselves (aka goofy and confident). I knew I wanted to include the arts, seeing as I was a theater and band kid, so I majored in theater and education.
