It started with a bunch of old photo albums spread out on the carpet of my childhood bedroom. I fell in love with flipping through the old albums and sifting through loose photographs. I was able to see family I'd never met before, see what it was like when my parents were kids and even relive some fuzzy childhood memories of my own. Being able to get 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.
Bad weather (I know, weird)
Iced Caramel Lattes
Singing in my car
Animals (I actually wanted to be a vetrinarian)
I absolutely love flipping through old photographs! They give this magical feeling of being able to go back in time and relive and learn more about the people and places in the photos themselves.
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 joke with my husband all the time that I need a special shelf made so I can continue to collect coffee mugs!
I'm the odd one out on this one, but there's something about bad weather coming that excites me. Maybe it was lighting striking 50 ft away from me when I was younger or how I love watching thunderstorms with my dad.
There's something so freeing about being able to travel and knowing there are so many places to explore in the world. I've yet to make it outside the United States, but I plan to in the next 5 years!
Bucket List States: Colorado, California, Alaska, Hawaii, Washington
