So I thought I’d share a bit about myself for those of you that are curious!
Professional: I’ve been taking pictures, posing and dressing up my friends since I was a kid. I began to have a true passion for photography after a trip to Europe in college. I’ve been shooting professionally for over 11 years now. I've shot over 100 weddings and countless other sessions. I received my Bachelor’s of Art Education degree from the University of Central Oklahoma, as well as two minors in Photographic Journalism and Graphic Design. Can you tell I love being able to use my creativity?
Personal: I have been married to a wonderful and also artistic husband for ten years now. We have one dog, Gracie. We lost our big Roxy girl in Spring of 2018. They have both been treated like our children until we had our baby girl, Elsie spring of 2015. She is our light, our joy, our world. And now we are expecting again with our second baby girl spring of 2019.
The Typical Favorites:
Book: TOO many to choose from - ask me, and I'll tell you what I'm currently reading. I will admit young adult novels are my quick guilty reads.
Movie: (romantic) Ever After (cinematography) Pride and Prejudice (comedy) Pitch Perfect – My husband and I have always loved watching movies together.
Music: Just about anything – but mostly I stick to acoustic style – Jason Maraz, John Mayer, Maroon 5, Michael Buble, etc. Guilty pleasure - anything Taylor Swift! I listen to mostly KLove on the radio. And I’m a huge fan of soundtracks (even instrumental).
Hobby: Since having a little one, she's become my hobby. But when I have a moment to spare, I LOVE crocheting (I know, I know – sounds old lady-ish, but I am addicted!). If you look into the newborn photos, several of the hats I had the pleasure of creating!
Guilty splurge: shoes! I love all kinds…even though half of them always end up hurting my feet and I hardly wear each pair I own...but they sure are cute!
