I've had an interest in photography for as long as I can remember. Intially, the seed was planted by my older sister (she was interested so of course I was too). My first year of college, I can remember stressing over the age old question, "What do I want to do for the rest of my life?" I decided to start by taking classes that were interesting to me in hopes it would lead to something bigger. After my first photo class, I was officially hooked. I declared my concentration in photography (I was already an art major) and never looked back. Years and years later, I couldn't be happier with my decision!
I have had my own business for almost ten years. I have tried every type of photography, but my heart is with wedding photography. I love everything about weddings and helping my clients achieve exactly what they imagined for their big day.
Every once in a while, I start thinking about what I would be doing if starting a photography business wouldn't have worked out, and I honestly have no idea. I had no back up plan or even a plan B. I imagine I would be using my art degree in one way or another, I'm just not sure how. Everyday I feel incredibly lucky that this is my life! I can only hope that everyone else is working a job they love as much as I love mine!
