I have loved photography ever since I was young. I have a terrible memory, so for me pictures gives me the opportunity to remember people and events that I probably would have no recollection of otherwise. When I was in high school I took two photography courses (black & white and color) where I learned the basics, including how to develop my own film and work in a dark room. After that I was hooked!
I love to look back at old pictures. I print out yearly albums and even print all my Instagram pictures in Chatbooks. Flipping through the books allows me to relive the memories. It helps me to remember fun times, feel grateful, relive happy moments, and encourages me to build more memories.
That's what I want for each of you! I want you to have beautiful pictures that you can look back on through the years and remember the joy, sadness, excitement, and everything that was going on in your life in that day, month, or year. We all change (especially kids!) so much each year, and you will never regret having pictures to remember each stage by.
Over the years I became better at documenting the lives of me and my family and then I had friends and family ask me to take their pictures. I realized how much I loved it and how I wanted to share this talent with others so they could feel that joy too. I always talked about starting a photography business, but finally decided to stop waiting for the 'one day' and just do it now. And I am so glad I did!
