It’s a difficult thing….writing about yourself. I sat down one night with a pen and paper and began jotting basic things down about me. How I’m a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a photographer. I then realized everything you really want to know about me is written in my photography. If you haven’t gone through my galleries, go take a peak and then come back here.
When you look at my photos, I want you to see my passion for photography – it feeds my soul. I feel like I see the world differently. I love light and how it falls on subjects making them sparkle and how it illuminates the eyes like crystals. I love the glow on moms to be. The smell of newborn babies. The adorning faces of new parents and proud siblings.
When you look at my photos, I want you to see the connections and the true essence of a family. I love making parents cry after seeing their photos for the first time. I love watching families grow and seeing their children year after year. I love children….oh how I love children and their impish expressions, playful smiles, intense gazes, shy glances and even their mischievous grins. I love playing with them and making them forget they’re even being photographed. I love tweens and their self-conscious behaviours, and teenagers with their exuding confidence and attitude.
When you look at my photos, I want you to see the underlying essence of life – the family ties, the sentiments, the devotion, the laughter, the love. I do this because time is fleeting, because children grow up so quickly, because we change, because we want to remember, because photos stir the soul, because life is beautiful….capture it.
