My dream of becoming a mom took longer than I expected. After three years of trying, we finally decided to give IVF a try. November of 2013 we did our first IVF treatment. Then the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, I got a phone call that I was pregnant!
After my first daughter arrived in 2014, I continued to learned how to better use my camera and played around with light. I finally had mastered professional photography and submitted my portfolio application to be a ClickPro. I was accepted 5 years to the day that I first signed up on the forum. From there I started my business and the rest is history.
Being able to provide professional pictures for my clients has always been my top priority. I still continue to educate and better my skills everyday.
Photography has been a creative outlet for me as far back as I can remember. I always had a camera with me whether it was a cheap disposable one or one small enough it fit in an altoid can. (I actually still have it and my daughter now uses it.)
My professional journey started back in 2009 when I got my first DSLR. I thought I was taking some amazing pictures with it! I starting looking online on how to start a business when I stumbled across an all female photography forum. After joining the forum called Clickin Mom's, I quickly learned...I was bad! I am going to honest, I gave up on the dream. Shortly after that, I started dating my husband and after we got engaged, my dream of starting a family became a reality. I wanted to take beautiful pictures of my kids. I needed to figure out how to use my camera. I started taking online courses and getting feedback on my work.
I photograph everything using my Nikon Z6. My lens of choice for families is my 85 outdoors 35 indoors. For food I love my dreamy 100. I shoot 95% in natural light. I edit 90% of the time in Lightroom and the rest in Photoshop.
