hi! i’m patti!
i’m a big kid; but not too big, cause i’m actually quite short! i love spending time with my family; which generally involves a 7 year old going on 30, a 3 year old tornado (with never ending energy!), a husband who can debate ANYTHING, and we’re almost always on our way to some sporting event (generally soccer)!
like most photographers, my interest in photography increased tenfold when i had my first son. however, i started quite a few years before that in 2000 when i was coaching high school and club soccer. i shot film and it was outrageously expensive!! i loved the girls faces and enthusiasm when i got a really cool shot! After many years of sports photography, i decided to venture into custom portraiture in the fall of 2010. i’ve loved every minute of it so far! it’s tested all my skills in every aspect of my photography, editing, and personality. at the end of 2011 i decided to focus on newborns and children. they are my absolute favorite! i love their energy, fierceness, and all out honesty!
my favorite sessions are the ones where the clients have thought out their outfits and are up for anything! (always feel free to bring along a suitcase!! hahaha) i love color, adventures, themes, and finding new places to shoot!
