You know, writing about yourself is tricky. I go completely blank. So, this next bit might be awkward for both us.
Here’s a little about me:
I see myself, and this job, as being a visual-biographer-meets-personal historian. Any time after right now is your personal history in the making! I find myself wanting to hover on the edge, letting time unfold as it wills, and capturing my clients fleeting moments on film. Though this isn’t a passive approach; I’m often seen climbing on chairs and eyeballing my surroundings wondering, “Is that a functional ladder, or decorative? Think it matters? Yeeeah, I’m going to climb that.
I want to show my clients how their loved ones see them. To give a tangible representation of how moments look in their memories. The chance to see their world outside of themselves. I’m so grateful every time someone lets me peek into their lives for a little bit and give me the chance to reflect it back.
If it sounds dreamy, it’s because it is. I love, love, love this work. It doesn’t feel real. This work has been so pivotal in my timeline, shaping me as a person and as a mama (to two amazing boys!) While I’m sure I haven’t quite realized the depth of the impact, I am going to run full force into these moments. Frankly, I don’t really know any other speed besides ‘full force’. Maybe I’ll see you there.
