am an artist. Likewise, I see the world in my own way. When I was a kid, my mom said I could create anything I could imagine out of literal trash. Creativity runs through my veins.
My first camera was was bright pink and purple. I was 6 and it was the highlight of my Christmas. Coincidentally, Santa also delivered a wedding chapel play set that year that was part of a larger village set I had been wanting. The rest of the village never materialized so my imagination ran wild with this chapel. Many of my hours were spent decorating and photographing the weddings that took place there. My soul knew what I was meant to do from an early age, but my logical brain convinced me get a degree from Texas A&M University in Poultry Science. I’ve never actually worked with chickens professionally, but maybe that’s where I learned how to wrangle families for formal photos?
My problem solving skills are forever being enhanced by the fact that my husband and I bought a 115 year old farm house in Snook, TX. Blindly tackling remodeling projects and learning new skills as I go is my MO. Have you ever refinished original hardwood floors? I have and it’s not fun. I’ll stick to weddings, they are way more enjoyable.
One thing youʼll learn about me quickly is that I love animals. The cat and dog distribution system seems to love me back. Our home is always full of pets and I love them all. If you have a dog, I’m going to want to meet it. In fact, I’ll show up to your session with my best good dog voice and a pocket full of treats if you want to include them in your pictures.
My family consists of: my husband of 15 years and two kids who are way too much like me. Ours is a chaotic house full of dogs, cats, noise, and laughter. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
When I’m not at weddings you can usually find me outside. I’m forever running and training for races. I’ve run over 20 full marathons and ultra marathons. Camping, hiking, kayaking, house plants, craft beer, and music that was made long before I was born make me happy. I’m always trying something new, my ADHD requires it-I suspect that’s why weddings make me so happy. Every wedding day is as unique as the people in it.
