I picked up my first real camera when I was in high school. It was my mom and dad's 35mm Olympus OM 10 (I still have this camera) and I spent any money I made from my part-time job at Target on film and processing.
Luckily I was in theater so all of my friends loved being in front of my camera - I had no trouble finding models. I would invite my friends over on the weekend to have photo shoots.
This is where my flame for photography was lit.
While studying at CU Boulder I changed my focus from musical theater and worked on my degree in Fine Arts. After graduating in 2003 I quickly started shooting portraits for friends and their friends. I took the big leap and moved into my first studio in 2008.
I feel so fortunate to have found my passion and can call it my "job". There's nothing I’d rather do than take pictures of couples in love, babies who coo, toddlers who uncontrollably belly laugh, and families who play in front of my camera.
Thanks for reading a little about me...I'm looking forward to getting to know you too!
