Tell us how you got into photography:Photographing births! I was a doula and offered birth photography… eventually I switched to full time birth and portrait photography.
Define your photography style: Posed with a focus on connection that will last for generations. My birth and personal work is definitely more documentary in style.
Describe your favorite photo: I am not sure I could narrow it down! Light. Always light. Backlit, strong light, whatever. As long as I have something to work with. I remember first starting with my camera and always praying for cloud cover. Now it is so boring! I want that light so I can work creatively and come away with stunning images.
Tell us your most memorable photography story: That is hard. I have been doing this for over 10 years, so there are a lot! Maybe the time I photographed 3 births back to back and worked for 85 hours straight while 7 months pregnant?! That really took some stamina!
Are you an Early bird or Night owl? Night Owl FOR SURE.
Who is your favorite photographer? I have a ton that I love, but I really love the work of Pastel Photography… her connections are so authentic but she maintains correct posing and makes her clients look great.
What’s the one camera/camera accessories that you can’t live without? My wide angle prime lens. It lives on my camera and is what I use to capture all those fleeting moments with my family in between sessions. Oh and my built in WIFI on my 6D… I love instagraming camera pics instead of iphone pics.
