I'm gonna keep is super real and start off the bat with saying I'm a pretty happy person and I LOVE life and I have a lot of energy!!! ..Which is pretty ironic, considering I have four children, a husband, a dog, and now, a cat as well. But to clarify, when I say energy, I mean within my personality. NOT like I'm ready to join a 5k race! Just to be clear. I probably use exclamations wayyyy too much in emails and my face is super expressive and animated like all the time. You'll see. I'm pretty huge into looking at life with the glass half full rather than half empty and because, hello! - we only have one life to live. I try my hardest to live it to the fullest! I know a lot of people say things like that all the time or post quotes like that all the time on social media, but I really do live life that way. I squeal when I'm excited or I slap who is closest to me (forgive me in advance), but joy gets the best of me sometimes. That's literally how it comes from the inside out. I'm a super huge dork and use sarcasm a lot in my sessions (it's basically my first language), especially for those too cool for school macho guys who think laughing isn't cool. I'll get it out of you - just you wait! Yes, I'm awkward and talk a lot but only to get the r e a l you out of your session, which, that's my biggest goal. That's what I love to capture. Real, raw emotion and feeeeeeels. Don't get too worried, I like making all of my sessions fun and I promise, it won't be as painful as you imagine. (I'm saying that for all you ladies' guys).
So, a run down. I am recently married to an amazing guy who is also kind of my opposite in so many ways, drives me insanely crazy, but who I am completely head over heels for! He often travels with me to weddings, basically helping me in so many ways, so you'll probably end up seeing him should you hire me for your wedding! I'm a mamacita to four kids. That's right, ya'll... f o u r. They range from eleven to six years old and they keep me busy all the time. I used to have a studio but let it go once I came to the realization that I exclusively love outdoor photography, unless I have this super dope couple that wants to shoot a sexy or intimate at-home session, I'm totally always down for those! I've been doing photography now for nearly six years and I'm so freaking stoked about that! I made the decision one day when I was completely over my job as an office assistant at Saltgrass. I loved who I worked with, but I felt unappreciated, overworked, and like my wheels were just spinning in circles. The opportunity one day presented itself when a chick asked me if I ever considered opening up my own studio. That same week, I quit my job, opened up a Lowe's card, and sure did open up my first photography studio. I work from home now, so bare with me while I manage home-life as well as this amazing career that I love with everything that I am.
I'm a big believer in personal development and law of attraction, like, big time. I just believe if you want anything worth having, you can change who you are to achieve it and get it. Mindset is eeeeeeeverything and what you tell yourself and believe about yourself is huge! We are an example to someone, so make yourself the best y o u that you can be! I love deep connections, and I'm grateful so many of my clients have become friends! Last but not least, I love avocado and if you don't, I may or may not be your friend. Just saying.
Can't wait to learn about you when you choose to work with me! Which...should be like right now. Obvs.
