{The Last Five Years}

February 3, 2015

Hi friends!! First of all, thank you for reading this blog and following my work all these years. To say I’m honored would be an understatement.

I started this work five years ago. I was fresh out of college with the perfect combination of courage, drive, youth and naivety. I left my job in 2009 and ventured out on my own, yet to discover what it was I really wanted to do with my skills. I had a desire to create beautiful things and meet amazing people along the way. Determined and disciplined, I spent my time efficiently working from my little townhouse in Uptown Dallas, without a clue as to what I was doing, but each day getting closer and closer to discovering it.

Along the way, I met filmmakers, artists, chefs, CEO’s, designers, directors, musicians, business leaders, storytellers, producers, editors, publicists, writers, entrepreneurs, creatives, speakers, friends, peers and dreamers.

I learned a craft.

I struggled, a lot .

I got better.

I got scared.

I grew.

I studied.

I challenged myself.

I asked questions.

I made mistakes.

I learned lessons.

And more lessons.

I was stretched.

I was humbled.

I was hungry for more.

It was the people that drew me into each project and each story. It was the stories that made me a better photographer. It was the photography that made me a better artist. It was my family and friends that made me believe in myself as an artist. And it was my clients that let me partner with them and produce beautiful things.

Along the way, I was able to create something I love. Along the way, I was able to refine my craft, skill and experience.

Throughout the years I photographed commercial work and weddings, and eventually landed in the world of food. Throughout the years I worked with clients ranging from the west coast to the east coast and everywhere in between, locally and internationally. I grew as a photographer, friend, daughter, sister and person. And along the way, I also became a wife and a mother. My business is my creativity paired with the talent of those around me. My business has shaped my life. It has come with me throughout the years and I look forward to the story that will unfold in the next 30 years. I look forward to my children growing up and peeking into this other world of mine : my creative space; my passion for beautiful food, talented people, and wonderful stories.

To my clients, my followers, my friends, thank you for letting me be a part of your story. Thank you for coming along for the ride the last five years. I hope you’ll stick around. It’s been a pleasure meeting you, working with you and hearing from you. I hope this blog continues to serves as a place to connect with you all, while keeping you up to date on the work I’m producing for my clients and myself! I always love hearing from you.

Cheers to you all. Thank you for letting me do what I love the last five years. I’m forever grateful- as a photographer, but also as a wife, a mother, a daughter and a friend. I’m a better person because of the amazing people I work with and projects I work on. Thank you. I look forward to what 2015 has in store for us and in the meantime, feel free to head over to the website to see new work posted! XO
