So, this is me. So far this life has taken me in many different directions, but I’ve ended up back here in WA basically where my ‘adult’ life began. I’ve spent many years here before moving back here as a Navy Sailor. This part of my life will always define me a special way. I know I would not have become who I am without having that experience.
When I was done with my service I found myself becoming obsessed with photography. I wanted to capture every moment with my kids and I wanted it captured ‘right.’ In a way that told a story and that wasn’t blurry (which proved to be difficult with kids when I was first learning ).
Eventually I didn’t leave the house without my camera. That was the only way that I really learned and I think it’s the best way for anyone to learn, by doing. Photography can be kinda nerdy, but once you start seeing what each function does in every situation, things fall into place.
It’s been 7 years since I first picked up a camera and I’m in deep! 😉 I love capturing my family and all the families that hire me. I feel so honored to be trusted with something so important as memories.
Capturing the exciting and the ‘mundane’ is all important, it’s all beautiful. It’s the little things that are so easily forgotten, the bath times, the baking messes, the splashing in mud.
Another thing that has been so awesome over these 7 years are the friends I’ve made. Other nerdy photographers! Whether you’re a client looking for a passionate photographer or a photographer looking for a friend that is just a weird as you, I’m here for you!
