So... here's the scoop!
As I grow older, the more aware I become to the essence of art. Days pass so quickly and the beauty of photography is the ability to see and feel those memories forever once our days have passed. What drives my business are those raw, emotional moments that I convey through my works of art.
I also have a passion for business and evolving a "bright idea" into something tangible and real. Along with photography, I run my second full time business, Cottonwood Shanty. Within this, I blog about home renovation, sell one-of-a-kind paper scrolls and share inspiring design. I guess you can say I like to stay busy... or crazy! They sound about the same now'adays.
Some things you should know about me...
I married my high school sweetheart. We have a pet squirrel named Douglas. My favorite flower is the peony. Fireflies = fairies. My favorite series is Grey's Anatomy. I love bunnies though I'm highly allergic to them. I drool over corbels. I hate coconut flakes. I have a huge sweet tooth. My favorite band is John Mark McMillan. We married in Portland, Oregon. Tools > diamonds. I like long walks through Target. I can rap the entire Fergalicious song... boom!
that the gal that despised entrepreneur/business classes in high school would now make her accountant father cringe. Yeah... owning/running three businesses can have that effect. It's not always easy but I love every bit of it. I love kickstarting small businesses. Nothing makes my heart more giddy than giving businesses the resources and images to bump confidence into their fresh ideas.
With 7 years of photography experience and a degree in Photography from the Art Institute, I am utterly confident in my niche of market. I won best portfolio in my college graduating class and several other small awards while at the Art Institute. Since college 3 years ago, I've been driven to learn more and accomplish even greater things.
