A little bit about me...
Opening JWP is everything to me! This was a hobby from childhood
turned into a career over one simple image I took at my best friends wedding.
I am a mother of three boys, a Registered ER Nurse and
much more to many others now that my clients have allowed me to become apart of
their families by growing with them. I've been honored and blessed to have had the privilege
to photograph a wedding, then a couple years later their first baby with
milestones after that. I've had the joy of growing with a baby from newborn to
her very first roll, which I caught on film, to smashing her first cake! This
isn't a job; this is my love, my passion, my dream come true!
A few silly tidbits about me...I am a Starbucks addict, I use the smiley face sign way too much, my sign is Cancer, my favorite color is pink, I love to remodel, demolish and rebuild all thanks to Pinterest, I dread the cold, and I am not a fan of being on the other side of the camera unless I am making silly faces! When you meet me, you may see me dressed to the nines or in a pair of jeans. To me, there is nothing better than a fantastic pair of high heals with my hair in curls, but second best is a pair of Converse sneakers and my pigtails, just depends on what I am shooting, and where I am at ;0
The way I view the world around me...
I'd like to believe my passion shows through each image I take, because it's not just a picture to me, it's a story. I want you to remember that moment like it was yesterday when you look back at each
picture in years to come. I want you to fall in love with your photos when you
see them for the first time and every time after that!
My style is candid. I prefer to capture real life moments rather than posed because to me,
that is where the true story is told. You may see me rolling around on the ground, hanging upside down, or jumping in the river...if need be that is.
My favorite things...
My favorite things to photograph is children and weddings. Yes, they are the most stressful, like my job in the ER. I never know what I am going to get, I always have to be prepared for anything at anytime with equipment at hand, and I most definitely always have someones life in my hands for that day or at least that hour while shooting. However, these are the most rewarding subjects and moments I can capture in a persons life. I get the chills when I see my bride put on her gown and look at herself in the mirror for the first time and I see this through my lens or while her father sheds a tear while during the father-daughter dance; I too try not to shed a tear. It is a priceless moment that you only get to capture once! Same goes with children. They grow so fast and their looks change from day to day. I prefer to capture them as they are today, with them chewing on their blanket, because that is what they always do and this is the phase they are in. Capture it and remember it! Relive it in years to come!
What I carry in my bag...
I am a Canon girl. I shoot with a 7D and a 50D as my back up. My lenses consist of 70-200mm f2.8 II IS, 55-250mm, 10-24mm, 18-270mm f3.5-6.3, 28-135mm, 50mm f1.8. Canon speedlight 430 EX, Promaster 7500 EDF, SD cards, batteries and chargers out the wazoo and other accessories that every photographer must have including full coverage insurance.
Please note that if my
Canon could be an appendage on my body, that would be okay with me, I would
gladly change my appearance.
What I provide at my in home studio...
You name it, I have it! I am a propoholic and that includes everything to dress up those little ones such as diaper covers, bows, knitted hats, tutus, etc... all washed after every session. I have top of the line lighting, with several options for backgrounds and a waiting room for those who are would like to relax during the session. Newborns will be soothed by calming music, the smell of lavender scents and a personal heater to adjust to his or her needs. A changing table is also provided for your comfort.
