If you have found yourself here, it’s because you’re in love and want someone who “gets it” to capture that love for you. I can tell you for sure, I GET IT.
In 2006 I met and fell in love with my husband, Sean. It makes me so grateful that fate would have it that he would introduce me to my second love: photography. We’ve been together now nearly 12 years, and are madly in love. Always partners and never competitors in life, Sean is a lot of the reason that I have my own business today. He bought me my first SLR camera for what we assumed was going to be a hobby we would learn together, but after my first roll of film was shot, it was off to the races for me. I became obsessed with photography and how powerful a tool it could be for telling a person’s story. It’s an exciting challenge to utilize expression, eye direction, movement, posing, and even light to convey emotion and deep rooted themes.
Once married, we tried hard to start a family. After a lot of heartache, we finally welcomed our baby girl Fiona into the world. She is like the Tasmanian Devil reincarnated, full of more energy than I even knew one human could contain, but by god I would be lying if I said she didn’t make my heart grow ten-fold!
So why am I saying all of this? What’s it to you? As a wife and a mother, I understand that photographs are a way to freeze what can easily become a fleeting moment. Our memories, whether picture perfectly produced or not, are our legacy. That is something that I value, no matter who is before my lens.
