I am a maker, a dreamer, a photographer, a creator, a wanna be it all-er.
Photography has been a passion of mine forever but I wasn’t always encouraged to think that photography would ever be more than a hobby. The day I found my inner strength and took the leap into the unknown world of artistry was life changing and I thank my lucky stars every day to wake up and do what I love.
Starting in photojournalism I was able to hone my ability to capture a mood or emotion while working for a few local newspapers, I have been published in a few national magazines and NGO Kids but something was missing, a connection. Connection to my subjects. I love people, and I love that we are all so unique in shapes, sizes, and backgrounds, it’s awesome!
Family portraiture will forever hold special place in my heart as family means the world to me. Weddings can unexpectedly touch me at my core that I am changed forever and there is something about those toddlers, their little personalities start to shine and it is so fun to capture.
I truly just want to hang out and capture your life moment, whatever it may be at the time.
My dream: To spend a full 24 hours capturing all my families. WHY would I want to do that you may ask because the real moments start to happen when everyone forgets I am there! When the kids wake up with bedhead, mom and/or dad making coffee, play time with the kids, and then again towards bedtime when they get all cuddly, *sigh*, it is just amazing.
I wouldn't be where I am today with out my main squeeze Elliot Goettelman. E, you are my best friend, I thank my lucky stars that I have you by my side, cheering me on and helping make my dreams a reality. Thank you Elliot Goettelman for being my bestie, my love and my handyman ;)
