My journey into photography started by running around with an old Nikon (that I think technically was my sisters and has since been lost after I borrowed it for a college photography class— sorry, Cal). Growing up, my step-mom had a film camera glued to her hand and us six (yes, six) knew that it was a dollar a shot before we knew how to ride a bike. My dad had a little art gallery off main street. My whole childhood is captured in photographs and art, and I hardly remember ever posing. Now when I look at those photos, I can feel what Thursday night dinners sounded like and I remember the taste of homemade popsicles on the back patio in the summer. When I began getting into family and life photography, I wanted this to be the basis. I wanted to capture the season of life, not just what the people in the photo look like. My work focuses on documenting important parts of your season of life.
