Tell Us About Yourself!
I feel like I have already told you everything about myself! I am a mom to three girls (Eva, Mila, and Stella) and a wife to my husband Justin. We both make our living as pharmacists and I recently started to dabble in photography professionally. I bought my first “big camera” when I graduated pharmacy school but didn’t really use it very much at all until I became a mom. A couple months after my first baby was born, I went to a “wine and cameras” event at a local winery where a photographer was teaching beginners how to use their “nice cameras” and challenged us not to turn the camera back to AUTO when we got home. The competitive side of me loved the challenge and I ended up falling in love with photography.
How Would You Describe Your Photography Style?
My creative style is driven by my feelings of motherhood. I love to capture the little real life moments that make up our daily lives using a documentary approach. Sometimes I am inspired by the real life moments and help to move things or interfere with the scene to better tell the story – but most of the time I am right in the middle of the mess with my camera in one hand and a child (or coffee) in the other.
What Inspires You To Create?
My biggest inspiration are my feelings surrounding motherhood. I am a sentimentalist, a bit lighthearted, and a struggling perfectionist. Motherhood came at me with big feelings of love and an overwhelming sense of my own mortality. I felt the need to document and capture life as it is to preserve these memories for my children. I have three daughters and I want them to have a diary of their childhood, me as a their mom, and their sisterhood. I also want them to know that I am not perfect as a mom. When they look back on their photos of childhood, I want them to see that real life is messy and funny and beautiful. I want them to know that they can do anything they want to do and that the most important part is to have fun along the way.
What goals are you hoping to achieve as a Hello Artist?
