I am a hobbyist photographer who is powered by the desire to slow life down so I can soak up the details of my beautiful, messy life. My life...the way that it is right now...because it won't be like this for long. I am a mother to three young children, and I have already found that the little things - the mundane details, the annoying routines - are not a constant, even though they feel like that at the time. Children grow, and there's a last time for everything. I can't stop time from whizzing by, but I can do the next best thing: I can document my family and the memories we are making so we can relive these moments always, by looking at photos.
I haven't had any formal training in photography. I have learned entirely by practicing on a daily basis, and by having incredible mentors.
