I am a mama to three beautiful babies. Well actually - I blinked and they are no longer babies. As long as I can remember, I have always had a toddler and a newborn. Then one day I woke up and suddenly there were no more diapers, no more cribs, no more strollers. My kids are now 9, 7, and 4. You hear the transition into motherhood is hard but no one ever warns you about the transition out of the their babyhood. Trying to ignore the yearn for another baby, I am learning to look forward to building relationships with them now that they are getting older instead of always just tending to the needs of babies. Im excited for this next chapter of childhood and it has inspired me to capture as many moments as I can. My children are my everything and greatly inspire my work.
Being a mother has completely changed my outlook on life. It is the most beautiful thing that has ever happened to me and it has greatly inspired me and what I see through my lens. As much as I love those traditional, wear all white and khakis and look at the camera and smile photos - I prefer to turn your photos into living poetry. I want to capture those cinematic moments where you're holding your baby like its the end of the world, wind blowing through your hair, in a dramatic flowey dress that is soaked at the bottom from the sea. Let's hold hands and splash and dance in the ocean. We are going to play, we are going to snuggle, and we are going to capture those precious little hands around your neck before they are too big to do so anymore. Of course we will smile and look at the camera too - dont worry.

Let's face it, the real reason I got into photography was to take photos of my kids. They are my inspiration, my. muses. During my off season I love to take courses and try new things, so of course my kids are always my subjects. Most of my client work is done on the beach so it's always fun experimenting with new locations with them. Most of the time it's on the side of the road in some field. We have fun and I hope they look back at these times as good memories made with me. I also cannot wait to teach them photography when they get a little older, I have been saving all my older cameras for them.
