I'm mother to a child who tests my boundaries every day, and wife to a man who drives me crazy. We live in one of the best places on earth; but my husband had to drag me here, kicking and screaming the whole way. This is me. The kind of person who can honestly say: You take your life into your own hands if you talk to me before I've had my coffee. The kind of person who never turns down a martini, Thai food, or dessert.
Life is good.
I'm in love with taking pictures of the good life—kicking and screaming included. My photographs are an extension of me, and you should know I've never been accused of being a quiet person. My camera loves people who make funny faces, hugs and kisses are a session requirement, and when someone throws a tantrum I click my shutter faster. If I laugh at an image while culling a session, no matter how bad it may be from a technical standpoint, it automatically goes into the editing queue.
I want to see people's loud, their love, their life. Together, we make pictures that make them say: This is Us.
Final note: I always hold a camera while I walk to my car because you never know what will happen. But you should know that in most cases I would rather eat glass than take pictures outside. #inhomesessionsforlife
