"Paradise has never been about places. It exists in moments. In connection. In flashes across time."
I fell in love with photography at 15. It's ability to freeze time, to capture moments and memories, and to remind me of exactly how I felt. I spent hours in high school shooting film, cultivating myself as an individual and artist, and developing my prints in the dark room. It was my time to grow, reflect and express myself.
Ok, so let's fast forward ten years (A husband, Masters Degree, and one baby later): My love affair with photography has grown exponentially. The moment my daughter was born I knew my life would never be the same. I picked up my camera, and haven't put it down since.
I want to capture your moments, I want to help you create memories, that your children and grandchildren, for generations to come, will look back on with so much love in their eyes and joy in their hearts.
Those two up there have opened my eyes and heart to the beauty in simplistic every day moments. Those are the ones I want to capture for you. The way the wind blows your hair, the look in your husbands eyes when he sees you holding the life you created for the first time, the way your children laugh running in the sunshine. These are invaluable, these deserved to captured.
Those simple days, the ones most people take for granted? Those are the days that breathe life into my soul. Sun on my skin, sand between my toes, my handsome husband's hand in mine, my daughter's laughter echoing around me? I'll take that all day, every day.
I grew up with family dinners every night, weekends together at the baseball park and summers in New Jersey. I live for weekend mornings, snuggled in bed with our sweet girl (and maybe a mimosa or two); I live for "head, shoulders, knees and toes" on repeat and navigating parenthood with my handsome husband, and better half.
