Photography is first and foremost a passion for me, not a job. It started as a hobby with my dad. My dad gave me my first camera and would set the manual settings up for me. He would explain exposure, aperture, and ISO as we would take nature pictures as Brazos Bend State Park. That was our hobby together. A few years later, I met my husband who saw my passion quickly. He gifted me my first Nikon camera body for our first Christmas.That's when my passion became "serious." I studied my manual settings and took online courses to learn everything I could about photography. I purchased workbooks and studied editing. I have a passion for story telling through images. Whether they are travel photos, children's milestone moments like newborns, first birthdays, and first holidays. Or adult milestone moments like engagements, weddings, and maternity. I know how important all of these moments are.For me to be able to freeze time in these moments in a snapshot to bring the emotions and feelings back to someone every time they see a picture is what drives me.
