My very first job was working at a photo studio, where I admired a manager who ran her own on location photography business. I dreamed that would be me one day.
Years later, I was finally blessed with an opportunity to bring that dream to life. I got a “nice” camera and began studying my little butt off. I spent many hours attending workshops, researching and learning online, and of course, practicing behind my camera. Over time, I found myself drawn to shooting seniors. I have so much fun shooting families and children, but seniors are just a completely different experience for me. After a lot of praying and discussion with friends and family, I decided that I needed to specialize in senior photography. My main focus in my studies has been to grow my skills as a senior photographer. I want our session to be a memorable experience and for you to walk away with images you will treasure.
It doesn’t just stop there. With the age of technology we live in, I believe we should make a point to not restrict ourselves to viewing photos digitally. I want to create images that are truly art, worthy to be displayed in one’s home. I want you to see your images and look back on them fondly, as often as possible
