For those that do not know much about me, I wanted to share some fun facts about myself and why I love photography so much!
1. Small town roots
I grew up in a small farm town in Northwest Ohio called Wauseon.
2. Cheese and wine are my two favorite foods ... if you count wine as a food.
Give me a bottle of rosé or pinot noir and some good comté and I am set. Oh, and maybe some olives to munch on. I also love to put ice in my rosé in the summer.
3. I believe in the power of positivity and positive visualization.
My family has a vision board hanging in our kitchen.. Have you ever heard of a vision board? It is a collage of images of our family and also images and words about our goals and dreams. We have vacation goals, work goals, positive sayings, and uplifting messages included on it. I love seeing it every morning. I believe that if you have your goals and dreams in mind every day and work hard towards them, you can achieve them.
4. Je parle français.
A Veterinarian is what I aspired to be when I was younger. The arts won over the sciences when I was in college and after studying in Nice, France, I changed my major to French Language and Culture. I also studied in Dijon, France. Nice is a city that will always have my heart.
5. My musical taste is pretty eclectic.
...and includes everything from old school country to hip hop. Alan Jackson, Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, The Beatles, Alison Kraus, Sam Smith, Nicki Minaj, Sean Lennon.. the list of artists that I love is long and makes for a huge music library on my computer!
6. Photography is my heart work..
Meaning this is what makes my heart sing. This is where my heart is. It is also my business but I feel so blessed to do what I love. I have always been artistic and had an eye for photography but to be able to accomplish starting and running a business, learning how to take better photographs, and persisting over the past two years has been an amazing and fulfilling experience. Helping others preserve precious moments together with my photography makes my heart SO happy and I am so grateful for each and every family that trusts my vision and appreciates my talents.
