Let me tell you a little about me and my journey with photography! I am first and foremost a wife and a mother to three beautiful children and a yellow lab. My husband and I went to high school together but didn't start dating until my senior year of college after he moved back home with a military transfer to Fort Carson. We were married only a year later on a secluded little beach in Maui during his 2 week R&R break from an Afghanistan deployment. We started a family a few years later after he separated from the army. Our oldest and only son Silas is now 6, our daughter Acacia is 4 and our youngest daughter Hazel is 2!
Art has always been a big part of my life. I graduated from college with a degree in art education. Painting was my emphasis, and while I loved photography, I didn't really take the time to learn it while I focused on painting. After college, I taught art at three different schools, from kindergarten to 8th grade. I dabbled in the art of photography when I taught an 8th grade unit on the history of photography. I taught my class how to build homemade cameras out of oatmeal boxes and how to develop the photos they took. I'm not sure if it inspired any of my students to take up photography, but I was hooked!
When I'm not behind my camera, I try to spend as much time as I can with my kids building memories. We are often out adventuring and exploring. We enjoy hiking and camping and we LOVE to travel whenever we can! Thanks for taking the time to get to know me! I'm so honored you are considering me for your portrait photography!
