Hey guys! I’ve never done #fridayintroductions before, I thought I would give it a shot! Photo by @jessiewalkerphoto ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. I’m a big foodie (we built our dream kitchen). I rarely ever follow recipes or measure things out. I usually put my own spin on things and add random herbs /spices to see what happens. It has never failed me yet! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. During the day you can usually find me hanging in workout clothes but I don’t really work out 😬. Having to walk the dogs up and down the street 7+ times a day since we don't have a fence yet is enough for me lol. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3. If I wasn't a wedding photographer I would of loved to be a Paleontologist but I'm not good at science. Last year I finally saw Sue!! She’s is the biggest, best preserved T-rex that has been discovered. Watch the documentary, Dinosaur 13, it’s amazing! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4. Fine Art was my first passion. Drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, art history, B&W film photography, were always 2nd nature to me. I also used to skip english class in HS to stay in the art room to paint hahaha. I have a BA in Art Education because I also love teaching others about art. My fav piece of artwork is Johannes Vermeer, Girl with a Pearl Earring. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 5. Robs nickname for me is back woods Barbie lol. I’m a girly girl, love ruffles and wearing tulle skirts to my weddings... But I grew up playing in the dirt with my matchbox cars, riding quads, driving a clutch and I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty. Thanks to my dad I know how to do manual labor…lay kitchen tile, patio pavers, use power tools and in college he even taught me how to weld for sculpture class!
While I get ready to make my lunch salad, I just want to encourage anyone who is afraid to make a lifestyle change to just go for it! If you need this change for your health, to feel better, to lose weight or other reasons. Before I made this change the first week in June I was afraid of the unknown mostly. Little did I know I would feel like a new person, start to love my body for the first time, my taste buds would drastically change and I would actually be happy with eating clean healthy food but boy was I WRONG. A big part of this change was because all the things I loved to eat were making me sick and in extreme pain. Sometimes the pain was so bad I had a hard time breathing and I didn’t know how long it would last. Running to the bathroom immediately after eating. I’m not going to sugar coat what I used to go through on an almost daily basis for the last 12 years because it was torture. Now I don’t have that pain and my husband looks at me like the first time he met me.
Last night was film scan delivery and I'm just in awe over my scans from @thefindlab . I'm literally falling back in love with film hard and the more I shoot it the more confident I am of it being more apart of my business.
When you're a beer lover and a sucker for old historic brick buildings you know its a win win when you get to shoot a destination wedding at a brewery!
Being surrounded by your girlfriends when you step into your wedding dress. This shot always reminds me of Cinderella and her helpers hehe 🐭🐹🐭👗. It’s my favorite bridal prep photo ever since they are more candied and in the moment. Shannon’s bridesmaids were such a great group of ladies to work with 🙌
