Can I even call it that? I in no way consider myself a photographer. Yet!

I'll start with a little background on my love for 'picture taking.' Ever I since I can remember,  I've been poppin' my coller I've been obsessed with it. When I was 13ish, I would set up different scenes and backdrops in my bedroom and take photos of my friends with a disposable camera. Oh man..I should find those. I would pose barbies and take photos of them. And I've always been drawn to beautiful photos. I've just never known exactly HOW to produce them. I thought if I had a camera...well..I could do it. Wrong..very wrong! When Mackenna was born, I would pose her and take photos of her with a regular old point and shoot Sony camera. I thought I was good then and that's a little embarrassing to think about. Here's a few pictures I did of her with that point and shoot camera. Don't critisize too much on these. I know they're gets a little better, I promise!

I know...yikes! But the passion <-- I HATE that word has always been there. 

 So anyway, I guess my parents have known that, so they bought me a super nice Nikon camera last Christmas. Since then, I've been practicing and can even see a HUGE improvement just in the 10 months I've been doing it. Next are some of my most favorite shots.


 ** Please let me know what you think! And/or any photographers out there who have any tips they wanna offer, you can e-mail me at If I were to start a business right now, I would most likely offer a 1-2 hour session with print release and a CD of the images. I know a CD isn't the BEST option, but for starting out, that's all I really know to do. Other photographers around my area who are also starting out do this and charge $50-$75. I really wanna start being even more serious about it and possibly making some money at it. I just don't wanna seem like a fool with a camera. So...would you hire me? I need to know!


  1. I would totally, 100%, hire you! All of those are amazing... especially the last set, you can really see where you have improved!

  2. I agree with Holly - you have a great talent. The lightening in the last few is amazing.

  3. AWESOME!!! And I know a little bit ago you mentioned you were going to create a blog signature... I want to be part of the cool club!! How did you do it? :)
