I became a photographer because of family photos. Nothing in my life has brought forth more storytelling than sorting through albums, boxes, and drawers of family photos, some only a few years removed and some dating back more than a century. My goal with photography is to preserve life's story. The "now" of life is important and oh so fleeting! A couple says, "I do" and a family is created...and it isn't long before life begins to change and grow at a seemingly increasing pace. A new job...pregnancy or adoption...babies who grow to school children and then to teenagers...an empty nest appears as those teens graduate and begin life adventures of their own. Suddenly, 20...30...40 years later and this family has a heritage to pass along. I consider the trust my clients place in me to captures glimpses of their "nows" an honor. One day all of those "nows" will string together to tell their story and preserve their heritage.
The 2019-2020 school year as a whole has been a highlight for me. The arena of senior portraiture is fast becoming the most rewarding. I’m thankful that my clients trust me and are so enthusiastic about their images.
When I think about where my business will be in the next 5 years, I am reminded that as a Navy spouse my business has to adapt to whatever this life throws at us every two or three years. Whether I am able to increase profitability or recognition, as long as my skill and artistic expression continue to grow, I will be pleased.
