Then I had my first baby, and everything shifted… My priorities were now vastly different, the work environment was in […]

I wasn’t ready…but my future was.

A Humid June Boathouse Wedding I have a few Friday and Sunday weddings this year which I am so excited about.

I didn’t do it on purpose, I just enjoyed photographing weddings more so that’s what I wanted my specialty to be. Then 2021 happened, and […]
