I have been the "family photographer" in my own family for years now. You know the one people run from and tease at family gatherings...but the one they are thankful is there to capture their families while they change and grow. I guess apples do not fall far from the tree as my father and aunt were the "family photographers" when I was a child. As I grew older, I found myself documenting our family's every move. I loved running my film to the local store to get it developed to see the story of a family event come to life. I started doing the same with my friends, as well. One day, I thought that maybe my love of capturing these precious moments in time could help other families do the same. I took a chance, bothered some friends to let me follow their children around, and I fell in love. I fell in love with each and every family and cherish the time I now get to spend documenting how they grow and change throughout the years.
Besides being a part time photographer/photography enthusiast, I am a mom to two rambunctious boys, an aunt to three awesome nephews, a teacher to 28 energetic third graders, and a wife to a guy who simply supports the craziness that life brings my way!
