I've always had the desire to create. When I was in high school I thought I would grow up to be a children's illustrator, a cosmetologist, or an interior designer...I had many interests which made it overwhelming for me to choose what path I wanted to take. Funny enough, I never even considered photography because at the time, growing up home schooled, in a small town, with not many photographers, I didn't know that was a "thing."
However, when I turned 19, I purchased my first laptop with my graduation money and fell in love with Photoshop and Lightroom! I loved playing with light and color and creating beautiful images. So my dad bought me my first Nikon kit camera from Costco, and I began taking pictures for friend's and family just so I'd have photos to edit.
Soon people began asking how much I charged, which blew my mind because I didn't realize I could actually make money doing something so fun!
I continued photographing local families, until May of 2015 when I married my husband and moved to Orange County where I then decided to take the plunge and get into weddings!
It's been a long journey of learning and growing, but every day I'm blessed to be able to do what I love and meet so many wonderful people and create so many wonderful memories!
