It started with a bunch of old photo albums spread out on the carpet of my childhood bedroom. I fell in love with sifting through old memories and loose photographs. I was able to see family I'd never met before, what it was like when my parents were kids and even relive some fuzzy childhood memories of my own. Getting a glimpse into these precious memories felt like hidden treasure. I was holding our family history in my hands and felt a sense of responsibility to protect and preserve it for generations to come.
Now, as a wedding and family photographer, I'm able to help others capture and preserve their most treasured moments in life as well. I get to give them a gift that keeps on giving through the years and that's pretty special. Pursuing this passion of storytelling has truly been an incredible journey and has led me to having some of the most incredible relationships with people.
My husband, two little girls, and my german shepherd are the best things that have ever happened to me. They inspire me, help me look at the world in new ways and I'm blessed to be their wife/mama.
I absolutely love finding and flipping through old photographs, even of people I don't know! I love seeing how much times and people have changed as well as remembering old memories I had nearly forgotten. This photo is of my grea-great-great grandmother as a child!
I joke with my husband all the time that I need a special shelf made so I can continue to collect coffee mugs! My favorite one so far is one with a fox on it that says "For Fox Sake". Haha! Cheesy humor, I know, but I love it!
This might sound weird, but I actually love bad weather! I don't love the destruction, but I love a good thunderstorm with wicked lighting! Growing up, my dad and I used to stand out on the porch and watch the storms all the time.
There's something so freeing about being able to travel and knowing there are so many places to explore in the world! My current bucket list locations are: Colorado, California, Hawaii, Ireland & Australia!
