Capturing your memories 

A few things about me

I have been doing photography in some form or another since I was a child.  My grandparents gave me my first camera as a gift.  Unfortunately, I did not have any formal training until I was an adult, and that was with my film camera.  I learned to how develop black and white film, I loved seeing that image come up in the developer. 

I began photographing on a regular basis when my daughters were in sports.  Megan played basketball and was a cheerleader all through her school years.  We went to a lot of competitions and I loved to take pictures of the girls doing stunts.  Leah was a soccer player from pre-school through her college years.  We traveled a lot with her various soccer teams and met a lot of sweet girls that could turn vicious on the the pitch.(Leah included)  I loved taking action shots of the  The Game being played.

One of my favorite things is taking photographs of  families in a fun and relaxing way.  Leaf throwing is always a fall favorite of the little ones.  Climbing a tree, exploring the creek, feeding ducks, and bubble blowing are all fun activities the whole family can enjoy during their session.  I especially love it when a family brings their special quilt or treasure along. 

Over the past few years I have photographed everything from tribute dinners, engagements and weddings, bridal and gender reveal showers, maternity, families, children, and newborns.  I have discovered that I like shooting 2nd I Dos, especially if the bride is easy going and open to suggestions, or has an out of the normal suggestion herself.  The perfect example is the Hardy wedding.  The bride and groom wanted their portraits done with a rusty old pickup truck.  I was excited that Stacy wanted those images. 

I offer a combination of print and digital files. Each session receives a matted 8x10 print along with the digital files of the images purchased.  This way you have the best of both worlds and your family and friends can see your memories captured.
