As a child, some of my fondest memories are of me sitting in the middle of my grandmother’s living room floor, with boxes and boxes of black and white photographs spread out around me.
I used to spend hours and hours looking through those photographs from the 50’s: of my Dad as a little boy playing in the snow; of my Grandmother and her best friend at the beach in those classic vintage bathing suits.
I would pour through old yearbooks and images of memories I myself had never been a part of. I wasn’t just interested in the science of photography. I was interested in the moments that the camera captured so beautifully, moments in time that will forever be frozen for you and your grandchildren to view.
A photographer is defined as “a person who takes photographs”. I define a photographer as someone who captures the emotion of a scene: the expectation of welcoming a new life into this world; the fragility and innocence of a newborn; a laughing child; a playful puppy!
A photographer is someone who captures the feeling of love and promise of a newly engaged couple, or the feeling of adoration and devotion of new parents. I believe a photographer can do all these things, and provide you with a permanent reminder of all the amazing memories that are experienced in life.
Everyone has a story, one that impacts them in their daily life. Sometimes, it makes you appreciate life in a whole new way, and parts of my story has helped shape my craft into something I couldn’t have otherwise imagined. After years of infertility and finally welcoming my sweet son into my arms, I know first hand just how precious life’s moments can be. I use this to help tell the stories of my clients; whether we meet when you’re a bride and again when you become a mother, I want to be there with you, holding your hand, capturing your moments as your forever photographer.
