I got my first camera when I was 6. Since then, I’ve always enjoyed taking pictures of my friends and family, but never considered it as a career for myself until 2009. After experimenting with different facets of photography for about a year, I realized that weddings were my favorite and being a wedding photographer had to be the best job in the world (years later, can confirm).
While spending way too much time obsessing over old Hollywood, all things Disney, Wes Anderson movies and Audrey Hepburn, I finally found what inspires me: Simplicity. Love. Quirk. and Elegance. Thus, my photography superpowers were discovered.
BEHIND THE LENS
When I’m not shooting, you can usually find me finger-painting, building forts, or having lightsaber duels with my children. They keep me young! I’ve been married to my best friend since April 2009. You can usually find us watching movies, watching whatever TV show we are obsessing over (currently: Game of Thrones!), playing board/card games or discussing the cool things we saw on Reddit that day. Yeah, we’re totally homebodies, but we do enjoy a good adventure!
Aside from being a busy mother and wife, I am also a musician. I sing, play guitar and piano and I dream of being in an all girl indie/folk band. I am way too into karaoke for my own good and I love a good dance party. And even though I am passionate about health & fitness, I’m still trying to figure out how to keep this sweet tooth under control (the Swedish Fish obsession continues). I enjoy doing calligraphy and graphic design in my spare time and you can find my Etsy shop here.
I also love Star Wars. and penguins.
