A little bit about me....

For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.... Ecclesiastes 3:1

This is my tribe. My people. My men. My world. 

I'd like to begin by asking - what season of life are you in right now? Stop and think about that for a minute. Really. I'll wait..... 

We all have different seasons we walk through...sometimes running (to get through it quickly), a lot of times at a snail's pace to savor every moment. But every season has a purpose. Every season has a meaning. I believe it is in our being to live out that season and learn everything we can during that time. Sometimes we learn the most when it's the toughest season of our lives but we'd rather have the joyous seasons where the weather is perfect and we're smiling and laughing or walking barefoot on a beach (no truer words were ever said!)

I began my photography season many years ago, but never dreamed about being a full-time photographer. Fast forward to 2001 when the season of my life was my own personal family - filled with my husband, 2 boys-ages nine and six, 2 dogs and a slew of cats & kittens. (I can tell you my cat story). I assisted our dear family friend with weddings and thought that since our youngest son would most likely be playing sports year-round for the next 16 years - then why not capture each season of his sports life? I talked with the sports leagues and quickly transitioned into their league photographer. 

Sports photography has truly been my love that grew into photographing those little kiddos as a little league player that turned into seniors, a fiance', a spouse and a parent, and then the cycle begins again. I have been priveleged to document every "season" of their life.

So even though I didn't really dream about being a photographer as a teenager, those years taught me so much. I went to every class and absorbed information like a sponge back then, and I can say to this day, I LOVE learning about photography! By attending conferences specifically designed for me and my business, I have met the kindest photographers that have become friends. It has been invaluable just in the year of 2018 the information and encouragement I have received. Its kinda like "continuing education" but doubly blessed because of the friendships that have formed. 

Now back to that season you're walking through right now...where are you at?  

No matter what season you are in right now, I want to capture that for you. I want you to remember the big teeth, before their permanent teeth came in. I want you to remember their first play they performed, the first instrument they played in band or at home, their first ball game they had the best catch to win the game, or their first touchdown. I want to celebrate the milestones with you, their first birthday with a "smash the cake" session, "thankfully thirteen", "sweet sixteen", senior year, engagement, wedding, and then their first baby. Every season is important. Every season needs to be remembered. I want to help you through every season. I want to help the young moms realize that every day isn't hard, every day isn't great, but every day is worth remembering and reflecting. Every season has a purpose. I thank God for the life He has given me. I want to reflect that in my life in what I say, how I act and what I do. Every day won't be hard or great, but my strength always comes from Him.  I want to be your photographer for your lifetime...for every season.
