Most artists have a point in their life where they knew this was meant for them. Do you have that moment?
I didn’t! I’ve always enjoy photography, and took a black & white photography in high school. After that my next run-in with photography was my wedding – I was OBSESSED with my wedding photographer’s work. I reached out and told her I admired her work and if she ever needed help I’d be happy to assist her and a few months later she called. She put a camera in my hand, and I never looked back. Fast forward about 7 years now and we are the best of friends! I’ve recently taken a step back from working, and am just enjoying my time at home raising my 3 kids.
Documenting our children’s lives is so important. What is your secret to not getting bored with your daily life?
If there was only one moment you could photograph for the rest of your days, what would it be?
Personally I find more inspiration from things outside of photography. Where do you find inspiration most?
We all go through periods of mental blocks. How do you push past times of not finding inspiration?
Who in your life inspires your art the most?
What inspires you more - light or movement?
Documentary and lifestyle photography are different to some. How would you define them?
Would you rather continue with your life or restart it?
Would you rather reverse one decision you make every day or be able to stop time for 10 seconds every day?
Would you rather never be able to speak again or always have to say everything that is on your mind?
I’d say everything that is on my mind.
Would you rather have no internet or no cell phone?
Would you rather lose the ability to use GPS for the rest of your life or lose the ability to use a debit or credit card?
I’d lose the debit/credit card.
Would you rather have eyes that can film everything or ears that can record everything?
Would you rather have unlimited storage space on your iPhone or unlimited storage space in real-life?
Would you rather walk the Great Wall of China or Amazon River?
Would you rather win an Academy Award or an Olympic Gold Medal?
Would you rather be fabulously famous and poor or unknown and rich?
Unknown and rich, no doubt in my mind!
