First of all, writing bios is not my strength. But if you are going to hire me as your photographer, you probably want to know a little about me. And rightfully so. If you want to know my heart, talk to me about my son Gabriel and my husband Conor. They, of course, are the most important people in my life and inspire me to do what I do.
Photography found me in 2006, when one of my dear friends gave me an old Minolta Film camera that I wore out. From that day on my life has never been the same. My passion and purpose had discovered me. I was surrounded by art growing up but never knew it was something that would eventually make me tick.
I consider my style to be simply reality. Others have described my photography as fun, romantic, dreamy, and candid. I’m obsessed with finding those in between moments that you would normally miss because you were too busy experiencing the moment. I LOVE children! I mean absolutely adore photographing kiddos! It is really what makes my heart sing as I still have a HUGE fear of growing up.
My career path post-Minolta has taken me through various roads. I worked for an online video production company, managed a portrait studio, and now I own my own photography/graphic design business. I started Dreamfocus Studio in 2010 and coined the name from my personal mission of “dream building.”
I’m also crazy enough to be pursuing a bachelor’s in Visual Communications while working as a stay at home mommy. My graphic design skills have enabled me to make some really cool stuff for my clients including wall layouts, album designs and other print products.
