When I was pregnant with our daughter Bostyn, my mom gave me several books I loved as a child so that I could share them with our baby girl. One of them was a Dr. Seuss book that's called "All About Me"...I filled out the book when I was 9 years old. Under the "what do you want to be when you grow up?" section I circled a Chef, Teacher and Photographer. Well, I guess two out of three isn't bad.
I graduated college with an Indiana University Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education (teacher...check!), but while I was in college I pursued my dreams of starting my own photography business. I have always been drawn to the creative side of life, and photography has always been a love of mine. My husband is an amazing supporter and has instilled so much confidence in me over the years. He talked me into starting my business, and I continued on building it and teaching high school English at the same time. I am currently on maternity leave from teaching, and I am having a blast focusing on my business only. So, photographer...check! Now I just need some major help in the Chef category, and I'll be set, haha!
I married the love of my life, Blake, in July of 2008. We were blessed with our daughter, Bostyn Faith, in March of this year. She is so amazing! We also have a "son" named Stanlee; he's a humongous Weimaraner and we love him to death. We also have two very overweight cats named Henry and Felix. I love Jesus, Starbucks, animals (especially elephants), football, reading, writing, Hobby Lobby, anything antique or vintage, seeing the sunrise and making a difference.
I feel truly blessed to be able to help document important moments in others' lives. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and with my help, people are able to tell their specific story for years to come. That's pretty cool.
