When I fell in love with photography

Family Photos

One of the reasons I fell in love with photography was that as a young girl I always wanted to remember special moments in time.  I remember saying to my classmates…”smile, this may be the last time we ever”  I’ve always been keenly aware that as I grew up, there was no way I could remember all of the things I would want too.  I jokingly say to my family and clients that the reason I became a photographer was because I am the last of three children, so there are no pictures of me!  I maybe have five pictures of me as a child and the only reason those exist is because my brothers are in them, I just happen to be there. All joking aside, I really do wish I had my childhood captured so that I could share and remember those moments in time.

Mommy and me photos are some of my favorites.  There is a special bond between a mother and daughter and to be able to capture that moment in time for my beautiful clients, is priceless.  Mindie and Hailey’s photo shoot was extra special to my heart.  Last year while stepping in to teach 2nd grade while Haylie’s teacher was away on maternity leave, I met this little angel and quickly feel in love with her.  Hailey looks at life different from most people, she finds joy and happiness in everything!  When you think of what God’s angels on earth look like, I see her face!  This will forever be one of my favorite photo shoots.  I will forever remember capturing her running to me on a bridge with no cares in the world, laughing loudly, smiling, and showing me a little glimpse of heaven.
