Most artists have a point in their life where they knew this was meant for them. Do you have that moment?
About a year into beginning my business I decided to take on a 365 day project documenting my own children and focusing on capturing their childhood to grow my Art. I remember at the end of that year I put together a video of the images, watching with tears streaming down my face, and knowing in my heart that I found how I am meant to give back to this world. Photography gives such purpose and meaning and truly allowed me to express myself in ways I never knew possible.
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?
I find a lot of inspiration in music and books, I am constantly listening to music and podcasts and books on tape while I edit and work. Musical lyrics always totally move me. I also love the whimsy of children’s storybooks so reading to and with my children has always been a source of inspiration for me.
We all go through periods of mental blocks. How do you push past times of not finding inspiration?
Honestly, for me, sometimes I need to take a break from client work and from social media to get re inspired and hope for a renewed spark. Right now, after a crazy busy blessed fall, I am taking a month off of client work and plan to photograph my own family more over this winter holiday. I need to focus on them and am excited for a change of pace. We are also having a winter getaway to the snow so I cannot wait to be inspired by a new backdrop…it will inevitably be magical and fun to create there!
