“If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn’t need to lug around a camera” Lewis Hines
I came across this quote after staring at this blank page for way longer then I’ll ever admit, I’ve never proclaimed to have a gift for writing. First I thought about telling you the random things about me, like how I have an ongoing love affair with writing utensils, or how much I love ice cream (really, I do)…but, here’s the important thing to you: Summed up quickly, I’m a mama to 3 beautiful babes, and the desire to document their lives has led me to where I’m at as a photographer. Capturing a child or a family just as they are makes my heart sing. I love to tell stories, but not in word, and that is my absolute favorite thing about photography. When I look back at the pictures of my own kids, it’s not those say cheese snaps that make me smile, it’s those captured expressions, the stolen moments that you might forget even happened, were it not for that photograph…and nothing makes me happier.
