My photography journey began as a teenager when I borrowed my Dad's 1970 Minolta film camera and took my first photography class. I was taking photos of anything in my path and started seeing things in a different "light." I spent my babysitting and grocery bagger money developing film at the local CVS. I would self-critique and go at it again. I took what I learned in that class and hobbied my way through my college years. Photography has been a part of me since then.
My husband and I live in the suburbs of Philadelphia with three busy kids. When our oldest was born in 2008 my husband bought me my first DSLR camera knowing the love I had for photography and desire to document our children's lives. The digital world of photography, a rebirth! I walked around with a Nikon dangling from my shoulder and began learning the ins and outs of digital photography and editing. My husband was working hard as an Engineer, while I worked in Early Childhood Education for 15 years balancing daycare, chores, and a growing family. Social media allowed me to network with other photographers and inspirational artists, while the internet opened up many more teaching tools and access to information. I started shooting every day and began to develop my personal style. When our youngest was born in 2014 I resigned from working full time to be home more for the kids, and soon after started my photography business, something I envisioned for a long time.
I am constantly shooting everywhere we go eager to learn, create, and document. Taking photos of my kids is my passion and where it all began as I love capturing the joy of childhood through their eyes. It keeps me practicing and constantly challenged. I enjoy networking with other photographers and continuing to learn through workshops, training, mentoring, and buying more equipment!
