When I was little, I didn't really dream of being a wedding photographer. Honestly, one week I wanted to be a doctor delivering babies and the next week I wanted to be an acrobat, so clearly I have always been level headed (ha!) Really it wasn't until I was 12 or so and my neighbor gave me an old film camera did I realize how much I loved photography. I thought for sure I would be a fashion photographer, working for magazines in the big city, but as time went on, I just wanted to take photos of people being happy. And really, not much is happier than a wedding day.
Oh man. I truly hate about me pages. I mean, it's weird enough talking about myself, but to try to whittle down a whole person into a tiny webpage is crazy! I guess the most important thing you should know about me is this: What you see is what you get. I'm not really great at hiding my emotions. That means when something isn't working, I'll let you know, and likewise, when I get "THE SHOT" I'm likely to let out an excited curse word and dance a little. Not a great dancer, but it's ok. I have heart, and that's what counts. Plus, my goofy dance moves will likely make you laugh, and that's a win for me.
See those two cute guys up there? That's my husband, Steven and my son, Gavin. No one makes me laugh like they do. We're overdue for family photos (#momlife) and Gavin is about twice that size now, and he has the funniest little personality. He's also my twin. Ask Steven how he feels about that ;)
I grew up down here in the Florida Keys, aka paradise, and definitely took it for granted. But the great thing about living where you grew up is knowing all the best local spots, knowing the greatest people who always have my back, and the at home feeling I get from Key Largo all the way to mile 0.
There really is no place like home.
