Tell us a bit about your approach to the work you do, your time in the business and a few personal facts about you.
I’ve had an intense passion for photography since I was a young girl. My mother was constantly documenting our lives in photos and videos and the gene was definitely inherited. I’m all over the place when it comes to my favorite subject…adoring everything from photographing my daughter, to the ocean, maternity, sunsets, and just recently began my voyage into underwater, now that my baby has been learning to swim. When working with clients I put my heart and soul into each and every shoot. My heartfelt goal is to create timeless photographs where they can see (and feel) their love and connection. Preserving this time for them is a great privilege and something I’m constantly working to better myself at. After 5 years in the business I’ve recently realized that if my focus just lies in creating images with a true connection, then little else matters. That is what will truly stand the test of time and also what keeps me motivated.
What about this session was most memorable?
Honestly, it was their connection. One of the most stunning sights I’ve seen.
Were there any hurdles?
Amazingly enough, the only issue I had was a swarm of little gnats that kept entering my shots! Everything else was literally like a dream.
Your best photographer/session advice?
Begin each shoot with a completely open mind and go along with whatever the day brings to you (it rarely brings you what you expect anyway). Relax and have fun and they will too! If you just keep your focus on the connection and emotion in your photographs (while allowing them to interact naturally), magic will happen.
