You should love being a part of every minute of your story.
Some say a photograph is worth a thousand words. I say a photograph is worth more, it should tell a very beautiful story. When you are sitting around with family and friends looking through photo albums, have you ever wondered what kind of story your photos tell about you? Have you looked back at those memories thinking you were glad you had them? Do you remember your reaction when you look back at old pictures? When I look back on photos of my childhood I laugh because some of my outfits and hair styles were hysterical!
At the age of 10 I was given my first camera and I was always looking for reasons to take pictures because I wanted to look back on them later in life. In February 2015, I lost my father after his long battle of COPD. The thing I regret the most is not taking enough pictures with my Dad. Then June of 2017, we were hit with another very hard loss of my Nephew, Mikey aka Rocketman. He was a very passionate young man that encouraged everyone around him to follow their dreams and make every moment count. Mikey is my inspiration for my photography business because I know he say, "Nanny do what you are passionate about!"
As a professional photographer, it is my goal to capture as many memories as possible so you will have them to cherish for many, many years. I want you to feel completely relaxed during your session so you can let your personality shine in your photos. When we are finished with your session, I want you to feel like you had the very best experience and know that your story will be passed on from generation after generation.
I choose to use natural light for about 80 percent of my sessions because being outdoors gives you so many endless, creative opportunities to use nature as a background. When choosing a location, I choose one that will compliment you and your style. As adults something magical happens when we are outdoors, it seems to bring out the inner child in you and that is when the raw emotion comes out. That's when you are creating the moments you want to capture for a lifetime.
