As the daughter of a photographer, I have either been in front of, or behind a camera my entire life. My parents bought me my first SLR, film camera on my 16th birthday, and I have been taking photos ever since.
I am a complete energy junkie, full of it...the simplest things thrill me...I can get excited about your new house paint colours - seriously. I also feel it all - as a full-on empath, you can guarantee that I can feel what you are feeling; I will wholeheartedly share in your highest highs and lowest lows. I am also a mother, a wife, a creative, a die-hard optimist and a true free spirit (I am not much of a planner, I am kind of a, 'let's meet under the stars somewhere' kind of gal - but believe me, if I do have to plan, I will plan it to the nth degree). I believe in creating your own reality, being genuine and true and wearing your heart on your sleeve - vulnerability is my magic trait.
I love both coffee and tea (probably way too much), sweet treats (also, probably way too much), creating with my hands, being in the kitchen and spending free and easy time with my 'Jewells' at home or adventuring the country.
I didn't always know that this is what I would be doing, but I always knew that this is what made me happy.
My Why and my Style
At the end of the day, our memories fade, we have no control over this...and when we know our time on earth with a loved one is close to an end - what do we search for? We search for photos of them, and even more treasured, photos of ourselves with them. There are many things in life that we can't control, but preserving the memory of love through photographs is one of them. This is my why.
My style is easy going. Emotive storytelling that is free and natural is so important to me. I want your session to feature you and the love you share. I don't want you to just remember what you looked like, but I want you to remember how you loved and were loved. I want you to feel something when you look at your photos. No cookie cutter poses or chessy grins. Just your love and your connections. Simple, authentic, true.
