The Girl Behind the Lens
Artistry flows in my veins and is the life source of my passion! I received an education in Fine Arts where I adventured in design, storytelling, and the act of creating. In my studies, I discovered the complexities and raw beauty of the human body. I was compelled to know more about people and their unique stories. Inspired, I manifested their stories as glimpses of time through various forms of media - sculpture, painting, and photography.
I unexpectedly fell in love with a California boy who convinced me that the west coast is the best coast. We talked every day. We emailed, messaged, called, and prayed. Our love story has all the elements that would rival even the bests flicks in Hollywood - drama, comedy, tragedy, adventure, fantasy, faith, and romance. We hope to publish it into a book one day..haha. Our love story is of course my favorite Love story of all!
Our dream was to have a big family and we wasted no time having children. I had to set my priorities straight. Either I pursue my passion or live my dream. I decided to put my career on hold so I could be a full-time mother. I look now and am so happy that I made the right choice. We now have six beautiful children who keep my life adventurous and thrilling.
As my children grew, my curiosity and intrigue in the human body deepened. They grew so fast that I felt, as a mother, a sacred duty to enjoy and capture each moment. I realized the importance of photography. It gave me the power to stop the rushing flow of time. It allowed my memories to become shareable, tangible, and immortal. Each moment, intertwining, became an unforgettable story that will be told forever.
I'm a firm believer that the greatest thing in this world is a timeless story. We all have one. You deserve to have your story told for generations to come. Providing this cherished opportunity for others gives me purpose and allows me to unleash my creativity. My mission is to provide individuals, couples, and families with an enduring heirloom that will be treasured for the rest of their lives. This is my story. What's yours?
