I feel one of the most important jobs as a photographer is to get to know my clients so that I can truly showcase who you are in your photos, so it seems only fair that you get to know a little about me too.
For starters, I have a wonderful husband (Rich) who supports my dreams as a photographer and businesswoman - he is truly my best friend in all his quirky ways. He is also the most amazing father to our 19 year old son (Jordan) and our 2 year of daughter (Tenley Grace). Yes - that is quite a difference in age, we know! But it keeps us busy and we wouldn't have it any other way.
A few fun facts about me:
Rose - gold, blush, mint and leopard print are my favorite colors - to be honest, I'm obsessed with the ALL. If I could dip everything in rose gold, I would. Long dresses that actually touch and drag the floor - I die for those dresses, since I'm tall (5'10"). I could live off grilled cheese sandwiches and Mexican food - especially the white sauce. Every. Single. Meal. I love manicures, but despise pedicures. I don't like chocolate, but will kill sour patch kids ... I am TOTALLY obsessed with nude - colored heels. You can never have too many of those. Aside from nude heels, cowboy boots are my other go-to footwear and I have a slight obsession with monograms. Monograms EVERYWHERE. If your flowers include peonies (or garden rose are a close second), I may need extra time for detail shots (don't worry I wont charge you extra ... I LOVE shooting peonies!)
As a photographer, I feel I have a unique style (which sort of matches my "unique" personality). Give me all those open mouth smiles, belly laughs - those are the things us photographers dream of. I love learning your secrets and any special location shots you want to shoot at (adventures are my favorite!), but if you don't have ideas for specific locations, I've for loads of them for you. I also realize not everyone is conformable in front of the camera, so I work hard to make you laugh and feel conformable in front of my lens.
And here's the obligatory I LOVE what I do line, but it's the truth. I have had a camera in my hand since my first blue Fisher Price camera (why did no one take a photo of that ?!). I don't take for granted one second how lucky and blessed I am to actually have a job I truly love - I know it's a rarity these days.
My perfect client: YOU! Well seriously, one word to sum up my perfect client is HAPPY. Part of the joy of being in this industry is capturing true joy from my clients - whether it's your wedding day, engagements shots, maternity photos or your family - I know firsthand those are amazing occasions, and I want to capture all of that for you and your family to cherish forever.
My favorite words to hear from a clients after a shoot ... "WOW - that wasn't so bad - it was actually really fun!" Somehow I always find the perfect clients (or maybe they find me) - either way, I can honestly say SVP clients rock. Just another reason I'm blessed to be in this industry.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know a little "about me" ... can't wait to chat soon!!!!
