About Me….

About me sections always make me laugh. Especially for photographers, I feel like they always start out with “I’m the person who always had a camera in their hand growing up…. blah blah blah”
My old bio used to say that, I mean, I did. its true. but, duh. Obviously I wasn’t the person who always had a calculator in her hand or I’d be an accountant, and I am NOT an accountant.
Ok so this is the part where I tell you about me…. here it goes.
I LOVE my job. I love it love it love it! and I worked realllllly hard to get here. I have known I wanted to do this for a long time. Since high school, but I let my mind take me other places, and I went to college to be an Architect…. except for, remember, I am NOT the calculating type. So I switched my degree….5 times exactly…and graduated with a fine arts degree. I planned events and weddings for a while, and then I was an art teacher for a minute…. all the while doing photography on the side.
And when the time was right, fate opened the door for me to do this full time.  A few bumps in the road, or maybe just life… have a caused a few moves and we are now located in Carlinville IL with a cute little studio on the square. 
 Aside from photography my true loves are my babies, Drake, a chocolate lab, and Lola, a pitbull rescue. They own my heart. xoxo

Oh, and I should probably tell you I have a teenage obsession with Justin Timberlake…. and I managed to meet him in September of 2012 after 14 years of trying stalking. and it was amazing. and also important enough to tell you about it here!
