Welcome to my new website and blog!
A lot of you already know me and my work and are already clients. But there are probably a bunch of you that are new and perhaps potential clients. I'm happy that you've found your way over here. Stick around and get to know me!
For my first post I'll do a more in depth introduction to myself and my work than I've included in the about me section of the website.
Photography is my zen. It's my passion. It really started about 5 years ago with a hand me down Canon 20D. The shutter was broken and I had no idea how to use a beast of a camera like that. For my birthday I had it sent away to be fixed and cleaned. When it came back I immediately started shooting everything;
I tried reading the manual and reading things online but I found that I learned best with the camera in my hands. If I ran into a problem then I would research it. Through all of this learning I started to find my niche. Bright and naturally lighted photos. Golden tones. Creamy skin. Crystal eyes. Sun beams sparkling on water or through trees. The next year I started to take portraits of friends. I found that I loved to catch the silly little moments, the personality of the client. This little niche is becoming very comfortable!
Of course I am still learning. Every time I have a session I learn something about the camera, the light, or the subject. But the main thing that I've learned is that a good camera isn't what give a photographer talent. It is their brain, their eyes, their creativity, their ability to see something that some may not. And that capture that.
