Tell us about yourself and your business:
I am a mother of 2 young adults boys and 2 teenage girls. I started my company in 2005 as an action sports photographer and soon thereafter followed my passion of working with youth and evolved into a senior photographer.
What is in your gear bag?
Nikon D810 and Nikkor 70-200 2.8 are my work horses.
Where do you draw inspiration from?
I am inspired by the beautiful work of other talented photographers . I am also endlessly inspired from the heart and energy of my seniors!
What is one obstacle you had when you first started your business? What did you do to overcome it?
There are many successful photographers in my area, so creating a client base was an obstacle for me. To overcome this I created a rep program that helped me expand.
Please share one tip that you found to be successful to share with other photographers.
Success to me is creating a memory that will forever put a smile on my clients faces. My best advice would be to invest yourself in and create a bond with your senior; this will better equip you to capture the true essence of your subject.
