I’ve always been a little bit of an odd duck. Not in a “avoid her at all costs, she will talk to you about sea algae ad nauseam” kind of way but more of an awkward shimmy to the beat of my own drum kind of way. I like that about myself. For the record, I don’t know anything about sea algae.
I can be painfully shy, but sometimes you might not even notice at all. I might be an 80 year old woman inside a 33 year old’s body. I rock a lot of cardigans and polka dots. No coffee for me, but I’ll always take a chai. I’m more or less of a mix of Jessica Day and Leslie Knope. I would be an animal hoarder if I didn’t have self control. I post a lot of photos and stories on instagram of my dogs Huckleberry & Sawyer. I love being outside, hiking or exploring earth. I have a wonderful husband, we met in kindergarten and he always lets me pick what color toothbrush I want out of the two-pack. I cry. All the time. #whyamicrying. Board games are my jam, and I’ll challenge you in Scrabble any night of the week. I’m often listening to alternative, indie, or folk rock music and lately I’ve discovered podcasts (10 years after everyone else). I don’t like to be the center of attention, in front of the camera, or late. My nickname in high school was Miss Sunshine, but I promise I’m not annoyingly chipper. Life is just better when you’re laughing.
When I’m on my way to photograph you, I’m probably just as nervous and excited as you are. Every time is just as exciting as the first time someone hired me. I’m a bit of a perfectionist, and I want to make sure your day, your photos, your memories are as perfect as we both want them to be. Perfection doesn’t exist, but if at the end of the day you LOVE your images as much as I do.. it kind of does. And then there it is on your wall, for always.
My work can best be described as authentic and unique. Maybe a little romantic too.
Let’s be friends, I want to take your picture.
