Wife to a superhero and mom to three superheroes-in-training, I am married to my best friend Jared. Our boisterous, brilliant boys fill up our days with laughs.
My Photo Journey
Photography began for me in 2011 at the encouragement of my husband, Jared.
In photography projects, I look for details. I enjoy documentary photography and I watch for magical moments to happen. This Spring, I’ve had a great time with flower and nature photography.
I love my Fuji gear– I shoot with an X-Pro2 and an X-T2. Primarily, natural light photography is where it is for me. When I am feeling particularly artsy, I throw on the Minolta MD Rokkor-X 50mm f1.4 lens from the 1970s that my parents gave me.
Early in my photography journey, I discovered a love and fascination for documentary and still life photography. I prefer to catch moments candidly. I love portrait photography and weddings! Maternity, newborn, senior, and family sessions are all wonderful ways to document your family’s special moments. It is a privilege to work on these types of projects.
My passion is black and white photography and I want to play more with abstract photography. Some of my favorite shots have been in abstract work but I am rarely brave enough to post them. The flower photography is growing on me fast, though, since I got some canvases of that work back recently.
I’m also trying to work up the courage to do more film photography. I recently came into possession of a Yashica Mat-124G and once it gets a good professional service, I intend to do a lot more work with it.
Other Random Trivia
Besides photography, I love coffee, crochet, music, podcasts, and journaling on paper: analog-style. Crochet projects include mostly blankets and shrugs. I am definitely a confirmed granny square girl. Pandora on my phone is on a Regina Spektor station most of the time in our house when I’m not listening to 99% Invisible or The Minimalists podcasts. Journal-wise, unlined sketchbooks are where it’s at for me. Laundry is the bane of my existence but with the recent advent of a dedicated laundry day in this household, laundry is no longer quite as overwhelming. That is noteworthy in this girl’s life.
