Most days you'll find me in my PJs, working from home, with Zeke climbing to the top of my head while Paislee runs the world from her pink room - or - hanging out with friends and making it a point to build meaningful relationships.
I didn't know that I would grow up to become a photographer when I was young.
This is what I love. I love that I have the chance to be so close to people's souls. I love that I have the chance to get to know people who are so gloriously made. My people. "My people," you'll probably hear me say that to you if plan a consultation or if you hire me.
You're MY PEOPLE if
- You are a little weird and a lot wonderful.
- You believe in afternoon naps.
- You don't want to be "photoshopped."
- You are up for an adventure. I mean, life is an adventure. Let's go.
My Photography style is similar to My People style; it's authentic, romantic, adventurous... I give you prompts to share some of your story and learn more about you. I like darker, moodier images. I like chasing after the light with you and letting you have an experience all your own.
In an effort to keep it real around here, let me share one of my struggles with you.
I have Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, and it is essentially a hormonal imbalance. PCOS has made me feel less than as a woman. I've struggled with acne, depression, unwanted hair - I've miscarried two precious babies because of PCOS and believed that I am not much of a woman because of it. I have never felt uglier than those times. And I let it fester. I started to believe the lies that I was not woman enough. I was not beautiful. I was too much and not enough at the same time. I was ugly. I deserved to hurt and to leave this earth.
NO. MORE. LIES.
I want truth. I want to unveil the truth that there is beauty in every woman. Every shape. Every size. Every color. Photography has been this journey for me. I discover knew things about myself even when I am learning about the lovely people I am so privileged to photograph.
I hope you are one of those people.
