I have a soft heart....
If you're wondering what type of person I am, and whether or not you want me to photograph you, then know this: Photography has shown me that I am a Feminist, a leader, a smart, brave and talented woman, an activist, and I suppose, an artist. But, I am also a wife, a mother, a teacher, and an information junkie. I stand up for others, but rarely for myself. I support equality among all humans. I support love. I am a campaigner, a LGBTQ ally, and a pretty good listener and mediator.
Additionally, I'm also the hot-mess-mom who forgets to bring anything to the bake sale literally EVERY time. I'm an over-thinker, I'm pretty un-tidy, I have a terrible memory and a juvenile obsession with Harry Potter (hence the image to the left!). Luckily, I have a decent sense of humour and have a rare talent for turning my mom-blunders in to relatable memes!
I got my first nice camera at Christmas time in 2012. I only wanted to take decent photos of my children at the time, but before long people were asking me to take their photos. I was thrown in to the business side of things and temporarily lost my artistic side in a desperate search for technical perfection, aiming to please others. These days, I've thrown perfection to the wind, and I don't consider myself a photographer anymore. I am an intimate portraiture artist. By photographing people from my heart, instead of mindlessly shooting sessions with no purpose, I create images that showcase intimacy, connection, and real love. I don't sit and wait for smiles. Instead, I cultivate emotion through my art.
I so look forward to hearing from you! Let's see what kind of art we can create together!
