You know that person who “always” seems to have a camera with them? They are clicking away any chance they get – from grand celebrations to simple life moments – a child cradling their newborn baby brother for the first time, a play date at the park, those “first year milestones”, the precious smiles and cute expressions that warm our hearts. How would you ever remember all the little details of those moments if they weren’t captured in photographs?
Well, that person is me. For as long as I can remember I have always had a camera in my hands – devoted to capturing all of those everyday moments. My parents gave me my first camera when I was a young child and I never stopped documenting my life since then. I have albums and albums of photos that tell my life story. When my first child was born I had a new passion – to capture her every move in photographs. Well, two more beautiful children (and two adorable dogs who also get photographed a lot!) and many, many more pictures later I have been able to capture the most amazing memories of my family. I love having these beautiful portraits to display in my home and grace my heart.
I love being creative – it’s part of who I am. Part of what makes an image a “work of art” is the creative vision of the photographer and also the postproduction work done to it. My extensive training in posing, lighting, and Photoshop helps me to create unique and stunning works of art that beautify my clients’ homes.
I launched my photography business ten years ago to pursue this passion of mine. My BS in Marketing from Penn State University and my 8 years experience working in outside sales has been very beneficial for me being a small business owner. Opening my own studio also allows me to spend quality time with my family. I have an awesome husband who has always encouraged me and been there for me when I needed him most. Without the support of my family I wouldn’t be where I am today.
