Just when I need it the most, just when I feel that piece of me drifting too far away, something falls into my lap bringing me right back to my passion.
When I was in the beginning years of young motherhood, I was introduced to a volunteer opportunity in our community called Help Portrait. Annually on December 1st, photographers, hairstylists, makeup artists & volunteers come together all around the world to give back to people in need by taking their picture, printing and then delivering it free of charge. Not only was I able to find something that was my own, something to channel my creativity, I was incredibly humbled by how grateful the clients were for this simple gift; a physical record of their moments.
Since then I’ve rarely been without camera in hand soaking up every opportunity to preserve memories for people. From the grandest celebration to an ordinary, but spectacular day in a person's life. Photography has been the constant for me, pushing me to work hard, and chase my dreams. Along the way I found me again and that has continued to inspire me even when things didn’t always go as planned. I hope my photos inspire you for a lifetime, bring you back when you drift from your true self and remind you that you are perfect, exactly as you are right now.
