Born and raised in Vail, Arizona and being the daughter of an artist and freelance photographer, I have always had a love for photography. When I was younger, about 6 years old, my father sat me on his lap while on a train ride around The Grand Canyon area and I took my first picture of mine and dads reflection in a mirror that was in front of our table. I fell in love with photography after that moment. Growing up, my dad gave me my first 35mm Minolta camera. We would go into the yard and take pictures of each other being goofballs or taking striking artist poses. As I have grown older, I have taken more of a creative style. I love shooting with vintage anything! No matter what other ventures I take on, my heart has always lead me back to photography. There is just something about capturing life's little moments that brings joy to my heart for myself and my clients.
I always loved photography but didn't really think it was necessary until my daughter Kadence was about 2 years old. I realized that my dad had documented all my lifes little moments throughout my childhood. Whether it was a missing tooth,a new outfit or even the first day of school. I am in love with documenting my daughters life. Its bittersweet to watch her learn and grow but I have captured all her little moments along the way. I will always look back on them and be so thankful I have those memories.
I love developing relationships with my clients. The real joy is when my clients return with their milestones and growing families. I absolutely love giving my clients moments frozen in time to decorate their walls of their homes. I love nothing more to walk into my clients home for friendly visits and see all the images from our sessions telling stories on their walls! When I photograph my clients, I enjoy interacting with them and allowing them to be silly. I love those real candid moments that tell a story all by themselves.
MY REASONS WHY
"Photography is an art of observation.
It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."
