I’m sure you’ve heard this a million times, but my love/obsession with photography began when my first of three sons was born. They have always been my inspiration and have truly taken me to places I never thought I could go as a photographer. My passion and love for them is evident in my work. When I look back at photos when Kaiden was little, I have to admit, I cringe a little. I’ve realized in the past year that photography is all about growth and finding your own style. I used to look at other photographers’ work and wish my photos looked like theirs. I made the decision to stop wishing and just trust my eye.
This year I finally took the time to teach myself the technical side of photography and it has totally opened the door to my style and creativity. I am a natural light photographer so my work always has a natural feel about it. I have been told that my style is dreamy and has an easy feel. Even though our days are not always easy and dreamy, I hope my boys remember it that way. One day they will travel their own paths and I hope my photos will trigger memories of how our life really was through my eyes.
