Thank you for choosing to learn a little more about me as an artist and about my business. Your time is precious so I am honored that you are spending a bit of it here with me!! Choosing a photographer to capture your family is not an easy assignment. There are some incredibly talented photographers out there who all have different styles so I will touch on a few aspects that make me unique.
I am a native Floridian. I was raised in Bradenton & on Anna Maria Island. I am a natural light photographer. For me, photography is about two things…light and emotion. Light simply captivates me. Especially back-light. I’m in love with golden back-light and bright airy photos. I love watching the light change, dance, move and illuminate. I am constantly aware of what the light is doing. I see the world in relation to the light. Whether it be alley ways, open rooms, faces and fields all in relation to how the light is falling. I am also drawn to raw emotions and the moments in between. Pure emotion that comes from the true soul of a human. Whether joy or sadness or anticipation…I am drawn to it. And I love moments that hang in the balance. Light and emotions…I guess you could say, I am in constant pursuit of them in their purest forms.
It is said that when a passion and a career collide, a dream is born. Well, I can honestly say, I am living my dream. Living and working in this sun-drenched state, brings me great joy. Families travel from all over the world to vacation along the Gulf Coast, the very place I call home. Bridal couples go to great lengths to plan their weddings on our sandy shores. And I get to capture it all!! I am blessed beyond measure.
I am a southern, beach girl at heart. I am most at home in the waves and on the shore of Anna Maria Island. I was raised here and I raised my three children there. I love all things sports related. I love Belgian beers and warm Merlot. I am adventurous and love new experiences while I am also quite comfortable to stay at home. I am an introvert who knows my limits. I adore ripped up jeans, over sized sweaters and one of a kind, chunky jewelry. I adore children and relate uncommonly well to them. I cherish snuggling with my children who are all just about too big for that now. I attend church. I cuss a little. I am an only child. I love my friends and I am fiercely loyal. I try to maintain a clean and tidy home (I said try). I love southern rock and football. That’s enough about me. Feel free to ask me any more questions. I am an open book!! P.S. I am truly terrified of lizards.
