Good to Meet You
On this page I used to tell you all about my passion and love for photography. While I still LOVE what I do, and hope you love what I create for you, I also want you to get to know me. The real person behind “the lens.”
I live in the suburbs of Philadelphia although I was born and raised in Virginia. So, even though I’m living up in PA, I still find myself to be a southern girl at heart. (I have a faded accent to prove it.) My Pinterest page says: I’m a country girl with city girl tendencies. I’d say that describes me to a T.
I’m a mom. If you asked me 15 years ago if I wanted children, I can honestly tell you my answer was probably something like….”hmm maybe. I don’t know.” Now, I could not imagine a life without them. I have 2 adorable and silly little girls (Ainsley and Abigail). And the sweetest little son named Jack — he’s my sidekick.
I was a corporate girl for many, many years–15 to be exact. I worked at the Daily Press newspaper in Newport News, VA in advertising for 8 years after college. I then met my husband at a friends wedding on Solomon’s Island in Southern Maryland. That Maryland boy somehow convinced me to move to the Philadelphia area. I remember the day I moved. It was 10 degrees when we arrived with our U-haul truck from VA Beach to Havertown. 10 degrees!!!!!!! I left the beach for the love of my life and don’t regret that decision. I miss living there and my friends of course. I’m a total beach girl! Toes in the sand…..the water. It’s heaven to me. My total happy place.
But I digress.
After moving to PA I worked in the Property/Casualty Insurance industry for 7 years. All of those 15 years in corporate/small company/sales has helped shape and develop me today. I’m thankful for my career path and so many I have met along the way.
~I wear my heart on my sleeve. If you know me, you know this is true.
~I spend my days chasing the kids and running a photography business and my husband’s business card says he’s a scientist. He works to cure the world of disease. I so admire him.
~I’m a glass half-full kind of person. Although, I do sweat the small stuff too sometimes. But I just have to remind myself to keep my chin up. Life really is good!
~I’m addicted to coffee. And brussel sprouts.
