A little about me......

Every photograph captures a moment in time, a memory, a life.

I specialize in Candid and Photojournalistic Style of Photography. Photography is my passion. I find such joy squinting through my viewfinder, composing the images swimming in my head. It is like poetry or a sonata that has to be brought out and recorded and shared. It's like a romance and deep emotion that I experience when I step behind the lens.

I use natural light whenever possible to capture the most beautiful images. There is something so simple and pure about natural light filtering through the scene. The colors become vivid, skin tones are beautiful, natural, and true.

I am most inspired by nature. Every bit of life, down to the smallest of elements, has been artistically designed with meticulous detail. Every detail, color, texture can make a beautiful image. I try to capture small bits of elements, little treasures of life.

I am fascinated by people. I am interested in their past, their journeys, their experiences, and their story. I find such mystique in the eyes of a stranger that pulls me in. Each person shares something special that can be discovered, captured, analyzed and enjoyed. I especially enjoy working with children. The innocence, spontaneous nature, and spirit of a child can be forever captured in a photo.

A photograph can spark a memory that pulls emotions from the past. I live to capture those moments for you.

Rut Rut Rut

So I have a 8 month old baby, a sick husband, a small cluttered apartment and I just can't get it together lately. I am definitely feeling a rut that I need to fix. I feel like I should be doing more with myself and for my family. I have gifts of being creative, persistent, adventurous but lately you wouldn't know it. Do not get me wrong people, I LOOOOOVe being a mommy. It is the best, hardest, most challenging and rewarding thing I have ever done!! It's not that I am not happy being mom because I truly am. But besides being SuperMom, I feel like I am missing something else.

I love photography, it is my passion. It's the thing that makes me so happy, secure, insecure, creative, amazing, etc, etc, etc. I barely pick up my camera anymore. I need some inspiration in my life. So why am I wasting each day not exploring my talent and need for hearing that shutter click?! How does one juggle real life and the creative outlet all in one day? I barely manage to shower and put myself somewhat together. Any advice?

Zoe is Officially Catholic!!! Amen

Zoe was baptized this Sunday, August 15, 2010. Being 8 months old, she was pretty interested in what was going on. The priest held her interest and I am pretty sure she enjoyed the baptismal water poured over her forehead. She didn't cry at all. I am shocked because she didn't take a nap at all and must have been exhausted. All the excitement of seeing new faces, family and friends, kept my little Angel wwwwwwwide awake. Yay to her!
