The story of how I stumbled on photography may not be as romatic or fairtytale like as some, but it is a journey that I hold close to my heart and one that I am very thankful for. In my second year of college I was faced with a desicion of what to do with my life. I was no longer able to take the path of early childhood education, simply due to the fact that it just was not for me. The only thing I could imagine doing was photography. I had never taken a photography course, art class, or anything, but something in my heart was telling me that was where I needed to be.
Photography has a big part of my heart, but it also shared with the love of farm life. My husbad, Frank, and I live in an adorable farmhouse that we remodled when we got married. It's nestled in the foothills of the mountains and is our oasis for getting us back to what really matters in life. Frank and I are high school sweethearts and have enjoyed every step of making our farm into our home. With animals of all walks of life, like our horses, sheep, cows, dogs, and cats, it keeps us in shape and keeps our lives exciting by never having a dull moment. While farm life makes you know and appreciate the value of hard work, it's a part of my life I that just could never live without.
I am thankful to say that I have had many opportunities that have lead me to some significant accomplishments. I strive to think outside of the box and shoot in my own unique way which has landed me in top three of Best of Magnolia Rouge 2016, Green Wedding Shoes, Martha Stewart Weddings', Inspired By This, Utterly Engaged, and many more. I have invested in myself and my education with receiving a Bachelors of Fine Arts in photography, attending many business and photography retreats, and studying under some of the best creatives in the world. Entrepreneurs such as photographer Jasmin Star, Photographer Corbin Gurkin, top wedding planner and floral designer Jacin Fitzgerald, former content creator for Style Me Pretty Abby Capalbo, owner of Easton Events Lynn Easton, and many more. I am always investing back into myself, that is one investment that you will never regret.
I am aslo very proud to say that I created the Vero Workshop series. This photography education experience has allowed me to combine my passion for teaching, helping other creatives grow their businesses and also creating and collaborating with the best professionals in the world.
Being raised by a family of entrepreneurs defiantly gave me that little push of encouragement that I needed to launch my own small yourself. After graduating with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in photography, I set out on the journey of making this career not only a job but a way of life. Being viewed as an artist is very business to me and what my brand represents. I strive to create unique imagery for each client that fits their couples style and personalities. Approaching each session in a calm, yet important manner allows my clients to feel at ease. Being confident in front of the camera is not always the easiest task, but I so my best to instill confidence in each client to ensure a fun time and a beautiful product.
