I'm a storytelling photographer.
What does that mean?
That I'm about documenting the every day.
Photography that focuses on you.
The people in your lives
The places you love.
I want you to be real.
I want to get to know you.
Know what matters to you
What makes you happy
That's what I want to photograph for you,
This is my family.
There's my husband Tyson
and my kids Luke, Jack and Olivia
That's my idea of a family portrait.
They mean the world to me,
as does my faith.
I love getting up early,
and hate ending conversations.
I believe in being kind,
the type that is there no matter what.
I believe in helping
everywhere I can.
In building relationships
and making everyone feel loved.
I want you to remember the details
The way things are,
I want you to remember the emotions
And the curve of your loved one's smile.
I want my images to bring up those tears
I want you to get smile wrinkles
I don't want to you to change your life for me.
I don't want to pretend everything is perfect
I want you to be genuine.
The crazy, dorky, fun loving, full out awesomeness you are.
This year, next year,
So whether it's the birth of your baby,
the day you get married
an afternoon with friends
or a morning at home
I'm about documenting memories
And you just might surprised
to find out
just how beautiful your life is
just the way you are.
Here are a few of my favourite pictures I've ever taken.
They speak to me in different ways: of love, laughter, good times and tears. Of messy homes and crazy busy lives.
But as a whole there is one thing that ties them all together: they tell a story.
My story, their story.
There is a memory attached to each of these images.
And that's why my favourite pictures
are the ones that start with "remember when..."
