In my other life.....

Travel? Yes! I dream about my next adventure often!Iam crazy about horses and have been my entire life.
My favorite colors are turquoise , aqua, and all the various colors of the sea.
I truly believe that every moment in my life has brought me to where I am today.I believe in all the miracles in life. Birth, a child , the senior year , new love , and new beginnings.
I feel there is beauty in everyone , even if you don't see it yourself. But it is time to .
You know that saying "the eyes are the windows to the soul..."
I believe it and if you let me I want to capture that!
Georgia has been my home for the last 15 year. I love nature , adventure , and the ocean .
I was born in Washington State, home of some of the most beautiful land in the world . I grew up on a small 12 square mile island in the Pacific Northwest, after also living in Port Orchard with my family raising horses and various small farm animals . I was blessed to grow up next to my grandparents who still live there to this day .
Island life was so beautiful and artistic , however not so convenient . I usually had to catch the 6:30 am ferry to get to school on time. My favorite things growing up were riding horses on the beach , catching a glimpse of the orca whales playing in the sound , and taking as many excursions around the small island I could exploring. The island was basically my playground growing up , so I felt comfortable climbing up and down cliffs , making forts in the forests, and swimming in the sound during the summer.
On the ferry I always admired the woman I would see with her camera who was a photographer. She travelled to exotic places for National Geographic and I wished that one day I could travel somewhere . Maybe anywhere.
Somewhere warm or different than the very familiar routine of my pacific northwest island life. I thought of jungles and tropical trees and azure colored oceans. Deserts, cacti , and whatever my mind could imagine .
Over the years, I had dreamed of becoming a photographer but I didn't really think it could happen . I became obsessed with taking photos of my children doing just about everything with my Canon AE-1 film camera. I took black and white classes and started developing my own film. My husband encouraged me over and over again until finally I believed that I could become a professional photographer . This was around when digital had been around for a few years and I was afraid of changing cameras. However, I took the leap & I am very grateful that I did and had the support of my husband to pursue it!
I would guess I am a lot like you . I love my family & amazing husband. I do the best I can as a mom to three sons. Always have and always will . This family is my heart and soul . I enjoy working out, whether it be a kickboxing class, yoga, or a hike thou most days include a yoga class . I like baking over cooking but still like all food as well as loving simple fresh food. I believe I will always want to travel throughout this exotic planet and be always be adventurous. I love to garden and be outdoors .
I am beyond happy that I can share my passion and this gift with others . I truly feel a connection with each person I photograph and i put my heart into every image I take of you . I love so much when I capture your authentic self. Lets show your love , your family, and the most beautiful side of you. Let the look on your radiant face shine through & then again when I see your smile as you see your photos ! Are you ready ? Lets get started!
