My Journey to Photography

Have you ever heard the saying “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life?” I always believed in just that: finding something I loved so much that it was never truly work.

While I loved this idea, I never knew what my “thing” would be. I always said “I don’t have a thing” and I always desperately wanted one. Then one day I decided *I thought* I wanted to try photography. I still have no idea what prompted that thought, but I knew I wanted to try it. I convinced myself I needed fancy equipment and asked my parents to buy me a $500 camera (with absolutely no experience!) Of course they said no and looking back, I’m so glad they did! If they had handed me this huge expensive camera that I had no idea how to use, I probably would have panicked! 

Once I got over the initial heartbreak of them saying no, I saved up to get a smaller, and way cheaper point and shoot camera so I could give photography a try. I still remember the first time I took pictures of another person. I had a friend over one day and randomly said “Hey, this might be weird but can I take some pictures of you?” And she said YES! I haven’t put the camera down since and I have loved every minute of the journey so far. 

While there is still so much for me to learn and so many people to serve, I can’t wait to continue the journey.

My Why

Through my business, I want to use my faith to inspire people to live purpose filled lives by finding joy in the small moments in life. I want to inspire people to be bold in who they are, to love life and to live it to the fullest. I want to inspire people to step out in the world and be confident in their own skin.
