The Unique Photographer
Location: Kimberling City, Missouri
Tell us how you got into photography: Well, photography has been in my blood since childhood. I was inspired by a family friend and quickly became best buds with my point and shoot! In 2010, the loss of my father and my own personal journey with cervical cancer created a path back to my passion; you know photogs that tell a story and the complex black box that helps capture and create those moments! It has been by God’s grace, perseverance and many loved ones supporting me, that I have been able to share my creative passion through what other’s might call work.
Define your photography style: It keeps me creative! I really don’t have a specific style because if I keep shooting the same thing over and over, I’ll for sure loose the passion to “Capture Life”.
Describe your favorite photo: “Breathe” is my most favorite photograph. I shot this of the old Zebulon Pike Excursion Boat, at the beginning of my crazy journey. I look at it and I can almost feel and see the warm, moist, foggy air coming through her nose as she tells of her history.
Are you an Early bird or Night owl? Hmm…It depends on what is going on that day!
Who is your favorite photographer? Ben Thouard is one of my faves because I love his ocean shots and all the places he travels to, however Chase Jarvis is my for sure favorite! Chase is very creative and inspiring.
