Let's talk about me...

 

My love for photography began at a very young age. Going to work with my mom and watching her develop film in her darkroom developed a need to create in me. This need has only bloomed throughout the years. I can still remember the smell of the room; the touch of the images freshly transferred onto paper; watching my mother hand paint edits onto negatives. My love for photography came during an era where there was no such thing as digital photography. I now consider myself a hybrid-photographer. What's a hybrid-photographer? This is an individual who shoots digital and film. I am still new to the film world, but nothing beats the look of film. This is why my digital images are processed to look like film. 

Not only do I love photography, but first and foremost I am a wife and a mother. My husband and my children are my driving force behind the camera. They are the reason I do what I love. I am blessed that I am able to capture so many images of my girls throughout the years. I am thankful that my walls are filled with beautiful portraits of them and us together. 

Here is a glimpse into my life...
