Hi everyone! I am so excited to share my art with you. I am a mom of two living the good life in Omaha, Nebraska. I started my business two years ago for two reasons. First of all, i was looking for somewhere to direct my creative energy. I love being a mom, those two cuties below are my inspiration. In addition to loving them, I discovered that creating makes a part of my soul come alive and I really enjoy seeing the story being told within a finished collection.
Secondly, I love capturing the moment. For as long as I can remember I have always been trying to capture someone smiling, crying, jumping, ...or basically showing any type of emotion while engaging with life.
For me that is the biggest reward, being able to capture the moments of individuals lives and giving them a piece of life that can last forever. I love using natural light especially in nature. I am a sucker for a romantic shot. I love the "details" shots; drool falling down a babies chin, a toddlers grip on their momma, a lovers hand touching his beloveds face. I want to create pictures that take a person back to the day, pictures that are so rich with life that a person feels like they are inside that photo, that moment,all over again.
Every session is different because every client is different. I invite people to just "be" when they are around me. Sure we will take a few shots where the individuals are looking at me and smiling. However we are going to also spend a lot of time not looking directly at the camera. If there are children I encourage the family to play, whisper to each other, give hugs and kisses, and run around. If I am working with a newly engaged couple or bride and grooms I tend to give them poses and then invite them to move around in them. I say, "Ok guys, feel free to kiss, touch each others faces, hug, hold hands....kiss some more! Just be in this moment together."
Recently I got to shoot my first fully outdoor wedding. This wedding was a game changer for me, because I fell in love with the whole experience. Previously, all the weddings I had shot were done indoors. For this one, I was with the couple for the entire day and I love love LOVED it, did I mention that?
It was a fall wedding. Themes of fall, Disney, halloween, and dramatic beauty can be seen throughout the day.
