The back story of how I got here…
I remember the first time my dad gave me his Canon camera that took film, it was the coolest thing ever. I took picture everywhere of everything! Then I joined yearbook in High School ummmm a few years ago, and really started to learn and understand the camera. I had to stop taking pictures for a few year but I always had my point and shoot yup I was totally “that girl” that always had a camera…always. And then my son was born, I wanted to capture every moment! That is what I believe is the reason I fell in love with Photography. To capture those smiles, those looks, those mannerism…that one specific day that brings so many memories back. It isn’t just a picture it is frozen moment, a moment that can make you smile, laugh and cry all at the same time.
Why “About Us”?
Wellllll because I wouldn’t be able to do what I do without my 3 kiddos and my husband. You will see the 3 kiddos on here a lot probably not so much my hubby. But without him none of this could happen, I couldn’t do what I love, I couldn’t treasure every single client who I get to take pictures of, I couldn’t grow and share my passion with you! My son is 6 and he reluctantly lets me take his picture (I think he is glad he has a younger sister who is always willing). You will see him on here referred to as “Mr. C”. My 2nd daughter ie Miss Priss is my diva, the chickadee that will let me take her picture whenever I want to…3 locations..SURE! Princess dress and tiara…SURE! And our 3rd little one, the little sister ie Little Miss, she is 11 months old. Pulling up on everything and giving that HUGE grin with just a few teeth showing. So that is “us”.
So about me:
I graduate from Southwest Texas State University…nope won’t call it the new name (and I am a HUGE Longhorn fan – hopefully my past and future Aggie. Red Raider, etc, clients won’t disown me!) I received my Computer Information Systems degree and met my husband there. Then I moved to Houston and was drawn to HR, why? Because it meant I got to talk to people, and let me tell you I love to talk. I love to laugh and I laugh loud just FYI, but with a computer degree it taught me to deliver a service that is perfect, you can’t have a computer program with errors just like you can’t give anyone anything other than awesome and perfect.
Chocolate and diet coke are my downfall…and a little bit of wine. I will hug you when I meet you and I will hug you when our session is over, to me a hug is the equivalent of boys spitting in their hand to shake hands…we are friends forever.
So sessions aren’t just “a session”, it is me hanging out with my new friends. With families we will run, we will dance, we will laugh, we will enjoy that moment. I will talk and laugh and hug your little ones. At a newborn session I come to you so I can cuddle your little one in the comfort of your home; mom and dad have some time off so I can capture their brand new bundle of joy. I can’t wait to meet you and capture that special moment!
