I was a very happy child growing up. Some days I would climb a tree and read my Sweet Valley Twin books, or I would color some rocks that I would find in the driveway. Sitting in front of the TV was not an option, so that forced me to start being creative at a young age.
As I got a bit older my passions branched out like the trees I would climb. I was big into scrap booking. It was before I had my first camera, so I would invade my parents boxes of old pictures and create scrapbooks of our family. Eventually, my parents bought me a camera and from there I was hooked! I loved taking pictures of everything and everyone. As soon as I would get the pictures back, I would sit down to put them in an album to make sure that I would never forget that day.
All experiences through life have made me who I am today, and I never want to forget them and also want the opportunity to look back on them with photographs. I was the photographer for our yearbook staff, and I took that camera everywhere with me. When I got to college I did not stop taking pictures and by the end of college I had so many photo albums full of pictures that I have an entire book case dedicated to them.
I did not realize that I wanted to turn my passion into my career until after I was engaged in December of 2006. It started with the wedding planning. I designed so much of my wedding, from the invitations to the aisle runners; and then came my wedding album. I designed my wedding album and received SO many compliments that I started my own album design business. It is successful, but it only made my passion for photography to grow even more.
I absolutely love being able to be a part of someones life, even if its only for a day, and capturing those moments that I know they will cherish forever.
