A brand new website and my first blog post ever! Yessss. About a year and a half ago, I decided to do something bold and chase one of my dreams. I had always loved taking photos in a very casual manner, but it was only after what can be described as a disastrous attempt to go back to teaching, that I was finally determined enough to dive into photography head first. I'll be honest, I mostly wanted to learn to take nice photos of my kids. But as I got into things, I realized I wanted more than just to have pretty photos to look at, I wanted to try to document my childrens' lives, their unique personalities, and if I was lucky, maybe capture some of their feelings. More than anything, I wanted to try to stop time for them. (Okay, for me.) This is what I strive to do for my clients as well - stop time in the form of images. That sounds hokey, but it's true.
Time is fleeting, and I am reminded of that almost every day when I take a moment to look at my children, to really look at them. The days are long, but the years are short. These kids are growing and changing so fast, and although I will never be able to truly stop time with my photos, I can do my best to capture some of the unique moments of those long days (that sometimes seem SO unbelievably long) and document them for that time when the years start to become short. These are 2 of the first shots of my monkeys that I took at the "beginning", back in the fall of 2012. Although some may see a muddy looking profile picture and a quasi mug-shot, I see much more than that. I see two beautiful monkeys who shared their maman's hopes and dreams with her.
