Get to know me
Welcome to my page! Here you will learn a little about me as a photographer. I am a local Hampton Roads photographer serving surrounding areas. My husband and I have 6 children; 17, 15, 13, 12 and 2 year old twins. Life is fun and a little chaotic and I wouldn't have it any other way!
I have had a camera for as long as I can remember! As a child, I would dress my cousin or sisters up and do their hair and make-up and have them pose for me, but my real journey as a photographer began in 2004. I owned and operated a coffee house in downtown Suffolk and needed artwork to display on the walls. Soon after hanging my work I was contracted to do projects for large companies and was selling my work. Two years later I was contacted by LifeNet Health to do photojournalistic stories of organ donor families and recipiants -this was a life changing experience for me!! Spending the time with these people and getting to know them opened my eyes to a lot of things in life. Knowing that I was capable of telling a story through photographs fueled the fire inside me.
As a photographer I don't want you to be just my "client". I want to get to know you, so that through my photography I am able to organically tell your unique story through beautiful, timeless imagery. If I could describe my work in three words they would be-
Unique: As an artist I am always challenging myself to make every session the best that it can be. I find inspiration through traditional art and the world around me and I strive to make your images one of a kind and exciting. I promise to give you images as unique as you are.
Organic: You'll find my photographs composed in beautiful, natural settings, filled with sunlight. The poses are natural, the smiles are real and the story is always yours.
Timeless: It is my hearts desire that my images become your heirlooms to be cherished for years to come. I am driven by my passion for art and photography and I aim to deliver images that will stand the test of time.
Thanks for taking a moment to get to know me. If you're interested in my work I would love to get to know you a little better too! Visit the contact page and we'll be in touch soon.
Until then, thank you!
