Starting Out

One day in April of this year, the following thought ran through my mind: "If I could go back and do it all over again, I'd be a professional photographer." My very next thought was: "Wait...I'm 24, not 94...I can still do something about this!" I don't want to send the wrong message out and cause people to think that I wish I weren't a nanny, because I LOVE my current job. I guess I just took a moment to challenge myself to think about the future, and what I want to be when I "grow up".

I know that everything I've done, every job I've had, and every different stage of my life so far has been meaningful in preparing me for this stage of my life. God has been cultivating me through my long-time obsession with photography, my education, my passion for people, my time spent with children, my love for weddings, and an intrigue with human relationships, to bring me to this point.

So now, with everything in place, and after years of taking photographs for fun, I've decided to turn my hobby into a business. I hope you enjoy my blog dedicated to some of my favorite photos. I'll do my best to keep it updated with coverage of recent work!
