My childhood is filled with photographs. My mother taught me the importance of having images to gaze back upon, making every moment captured a special one. It didn't matter if I was crawling on the dishwasher, turning 10, or performing in college half time shows. With each snap, the moment became memorable. My goal as a photographer became clear after my two children came into the world: to help celebrate children's lives in images and assist families in displaying these priceless moments through highly personal artwork.
