I am a complicated creature.
Really, we all are. There are so many factors going into the things we do, the choices we make, the people we are.....and even, the photographer we hire. Right now, I don't want to tell you "About Me," in the typical fashion. Instead, I want to start with why.
Because when I start with WHY I do this, rather than how I do it, or what I do, then I believe you'll be able to understand me on a far great level. You'll feel in your heart and in your gut if we are meant to work together.
My favorite memories of my dad and I are the hours and hours we spent together in the car, driving from campgrounds to hiking spots to National Parks to every cool site that particular state had to offer. When I was a little girl, my mother had told him that he needed to treat me the same way and do the same things with me as he would with my brother - and he listened. I grew up with a love for travel, clear nighttime skies, weeks of roadtripping, pouring over maps and tour guide books, and seeing the world.
So it really only makes sense that now my husband and I are on this epic journey of traveling the United States to see all that it has to offer us. We can't wait to not just "cross off" each National Park from our list, but really dig into the bits and pieces of this country and allow it to become a part of us and our children's lives.
My parents divorced when I was 12, so suddenly those road trips became a whole lot more special to me when summer was the only time I got to spend with my dad. I treasure the photos I have from our adventures and wish I had more. And not more photos of the landscape - more photos of us, being together, making memories.
Adventures are meant to be remembered.
So whether it's your wedding day - the beginning of an adventure, or just a day exploring with your best friend or your family, I am passionate about that. I care deeply about those moments.
I think we all could use a bit more adventure in our lives. That's why I'm here.
And perhaps, that's why you are, too.
