the inspiration

     Mason was my first born, my whole world, & my entire being, but in January of 2011, my sweet little boy passed away in his sleep at 3 1/2 years old. My life crumbled to pieces & I was left completely lost & unsure of who I was anymore. It was then that I needed something to get *me* back.

     With gentle encouragement from my friends & family I decided to give this photography business a try. I didn't have any training & taught myself everything I knew, but I discovered that photography was like my therapy. It gave me something to get excited about again. It gave me a reason to get out of the house & to socialize.

It didn't take long for me to realize that this passion was evolving. Photography became less about helping me heal & more about wanting to preserve these priceless memories for the families that I worked with. There were so many memories with Mason that I would have loved to have documented. And because of that, I am now devoted to preserving your story.

    While we have faced some heartache in the past, we have so much to be grateful for. My husband is a tireless man with commendable determination. He is an incredible father & has provided us with a lovely life on an apple farm. We have been blessed with three other amazing, beautiful children who each have their own unique story.

Photos are all that I have to remind me that my life with Mason was not just a breath taking dream. It is my wish that you fall in love with your gallery from our session, because I know, first hand, that there is absolutely no value that can be placed on these memories.

   

And if there is anything that you get from reading all of this, it's that I truly LOVE my job. Like...a lot.
