Making it official

I've been taking photos for a long time. I grew up with a family of photographers and artists and creative souls and have had a camera in hand for as long as I can remember.

I made albums of school trips taken with my ridiculously heavy uses-actual-film Kodak. I learned about what made each setting unique on my tiny but higher-pixeled Casio that I carried everywhere. An upgraded Casio took the first photos of my son. And for the past year, I have been falling in love with the world as I've seen it through the lens of my Nikon, a fancy-schmancy camera that has forced me to learn about aperture and focus, ISO and white balance.

A friend asked me to take photos of her wedding when her photographer fell through and it was during that long day of following around a beautiful lady clad in white that I fell in love. I loved the adrenaline of having only one shot at capturing the moment; loved the way my eye was drawn toward the in-between moments: the decorations and set-up; the way a grandmother adjusted the tie on one of the littlest attendees; the way an entire group was aiming their cameras and whooping with glee at the cake cutting.

And that was it - I was hooked.

I've since captured a newborn baby's hug from an older brother and the way her tiny fist wrapped around Mom's thumb.

My shutter has opened and closed on families and babies and pets; it has helped create 8x10s and treasured wallets, photo albums and slideshows and holiday cards.

And now it's going to be more of the same quality and love and yes, even that adrenaline. Except with business cards and a new website!
