My camera goes with me wherever I go. Opportunities to capture special moments can occur at any time! Photography has been my passion since I was a young child. Even then my camera went along on all my adventures, including sports, fishing, or hiking the trails near our home in SE Kansas.
Today I live in Joplin, Missouri with my husband and our three daughters and one son. They have been very patient through the many photo shoots I've put them through! While capturing so many of my kids' memorable events, expressions and milestones, I realized that photography is something I would like to do for others.
One of my favorite things about photography is that the job is never the same. Each photo shoot is different. Even if I take pictures for the same family four times in the same year; kids grow, locations change, and photo themes are different. I love the challenge of coming up with new ideas. I love the excitement I get before and during each photo shoot. I love finding the perfect angle to shoot the innocence of a toddler examining a flower, jumping in the mud, holding a frog, or playing with a sibling. The perfect moments captured can bring a person back to that day; to the sounds, the smells, the place, the people. That's what I love to do -- to capture a memory that will send someone back to that special moment -- even years from now.
Let's make beautiful memories for your family together!
