Our purpose is to produce art that reminds you of what matters in life: the love of family and friends.
Family: We treasure our family and the time we share with them, which is why we love capturing your moments too.
Friends: Our clients begin as strangers and become our friends. You are more than a name and number to us and we really care about you.
Community: We believe in giving back to our local and global community. We donate our time, talents, and a portion of our profits, to charitable organizations.
Education: We strive to improve technically and artistically by regularly attending industry meetings, workshops, and conferences as well as reading books and blogs.
Celebrating the Day: We believe in living life to the fullest. Each day is a gift. By doing what we love, we control our destiny and fulfill our dreams.
About the Artist
I got blue eyes from my dad and curly hair from my mom. On top of that, they gave me God, an RIT education, and the confidence to run my own business.
I also love to hug. I think that came from my grandpa. He hugged my husband (boyfriend then) the first time they met. Thats just how my family is. We love people.
I loved photography from a young age and originally dreamt of photographing for a newspaper or magazine (you know the one). I switched to portraiture when I realized the power that photographs of our loved ones have. Have you ever lost someone? I know the first place we head is the photo album. We dig up and relive all of the happy memories.
I guess what it comes down to, is that I like being the one to provide the photographs linked to your happy memories. Whether its a wedding, birth, or any other important life event. I even consider everyday life an important scene to capture. My mom has photographs of every birthday, holiday, and family picnic. But what happened on the days in between? I love to capture those days too.
While a lot of my time these days is spent working in, on and growing my business, I also volunteer at Church, love to ride my bike along the canal, enjoy a good wine tour, snuggling with my dog and going places I’ve never been before. So far I’ve seen 29 of the United States and about 8 foreign countries. I’ll get to the rest of them soon.
I love what I do, and try to make those whom I work with enjoy the process as well as the result. Now that you know a little about me, I’d love to get to know you. Lets get together and make something creative! Join me on Facebook, LinkedIn, or email a note. I look forward to hearing from you!
