Behind the Lens…
This blog is to give you an insight into how I create my photo sessions, my personality and how it fits into what I do, how I do it and why. Also, what it takes to make it magical, help your vision come to life. A behind-the-scenes look at how I pull it all together, why photography costs so much money sometimes, and how much energy it takes to create unique one-of-a-kind set ups. This will also help give an idea of who I am behind the scenes: a mother, a US Navy mom, wife, photographer, Small business Owner, dental hygienist, coffee lover, domestic engineer cat/dog mom, friend, and the most important a daughter of a king. I am progress, not perfection. I will show how Sometimes life doesn’t go as planned, and how I make it all work. Insight into a very creative part of me that doesn’t know what to do with herself most of the time. You will see all my craziness, family, kids, animals, clients, all my behind the scenes and finished products, shopping for props, and tips/tricks of how I create my props/sessions.
I hope you enjoy what you see, read and watch.
