I am a wife and mother of two young boys. My love of photography was initially sparked with the birth of my first born. I wanted beautiful reminders of every single amazing thing he did. At some point I decided that capturing memories was something I felt strongly about. I began immersing myself in a world of learning and spent countless hours dedicating myself to fine tuning my skills to become a respected professional photographer in the triangle area. It isn’t all about taking a beautiful picture, it is about capturing the feelings and emotion during a certain time in your life. I am learning first hand that this time passes quickly, so very quickly. I look back at my own photos and videos and miss that newborn, that 1 year old, that 2 year old, etc. Our children are never those children ever again.
My absolute favorite is photographing newborns. In a matter of days, they change so much and we are often in a fog during that time of embracing the biggest changes in our lives. I adore creating images that remind you how perfect they were and how in awe of them you were. It is easy to forget how teeny their fingers were, how tiny their toes were, the round shape of their nose, the pout of their lips and all those other little details. I want you to remember. It is amazing, but it is fleeting.
I grew up in Tennessee but I fell in love with the Raleigh area when I moved here to attend Meredith College (class of 2005!) where I obtained a degree in Business Administration. Maybe you wonder how I ended up as a photographer with a Business degree, but I will tell you that it makes perfect sense! I use my degree every day as a business owner and I enjoy it immensely. It is the perfect balance of business while also allowing me to be creative.
I would enjoy hearing from you! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
