Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I am a Nikon girl. I am a total photography junkie. I even have a little dog named Nikon. Yes I am a dork hahaha. I am a mom to two awesome boys. They are my whole world. I shoot with my heart. I have always had a passion for photography and to become a photographer was always my dream!!
How did you get started in photography?:
I bought my first film SLR when I had my first son. (that was along time ago hahahaha) I became a total Mom Tog. Then when digital came out I bought my first digital SLR camera and thought it was the best thing ever invented beside pop. I could take a gazillion pictures and not have to run to the store to buy another roll of film or go develop it, by far the coolest thing ever. I was bad at actually developing my rolls of film. After my second son was born was when I started really getting more into photography. I quit my job and sat at home taking pictures of him all day and it was just awesome but wanted more. Then I started my business shortly after.
