10 Questions

About the image…
1) Why do you love this image? I love everything about this image. I love how peaceful she looks. I love the muted colors and the pose. This is the first newborn session I shot alone without an assistant and I remember being really nervous beforehand. But, as the session progressed, I loved it. I felt so in control and totally enjoyed the moment. I felt so peaceful holding her and bonding with her. I saw this shot in my head and was beyond thrilled that I was able to bring it to life for the parents.

2) What were your settings with this image? ISO 200 f/2 1/400 50 mm

About Photography…
3) What do you love about Photography? I love the connection I get with my clients. Not everyone is comfortable in front of the lens and I know that. When I’m able to get my subject to relax and just be, that’s when the magic happens for me. Even newborns need to feel comfortable with me to get a beautiful shot. Photography excites me and makes me feel alive.

4) What type of Photography do you specialize in and why? I have a passion for newborn and child photography and I also love maternity and couples. There is just so much excitement and love at those sessions. It’s almost palpable!

About your life?
5) What are your favorite hobbies and pastimes? I love watching my kids play basketball and soccer, I love to read on my Nook, I enjoy digital scrap booking, golfing and spending time with my family. My favorite thing to do in the world is to laugh. There’s just nothing like laughing until you cry. It’s definitely a good day when that happens!

6) Who or what inspires you? Love inspires me. I’m such a romantic at heart and being able to produce an image that portrays that emotion is my true passion and joy.

7) Who are some of your favorite singers/bands? Gosh, my favorites change all the time. I love Lifehouse, Black Eyed Peas, Daughtry. I’ll always have a soft spot for Metallica and Nirvana. Lady Antebellum has some pretty songs out, too. I love them all!

8 ) What is your favorite movie of all time? Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Remember, I’m a hopeless romantic.

9) What would your ideal day be like? A newborn session in the morning, lunch with my husband in the afternoon, a front row seat at one of my kid’s basketball game, then home for dinner and a movie with my family. Perfection.

10) If you weren’t a photographer, what other profession would you like to pursue? I think it would be fun to be a producer or director. I definitely need to create something.

My next featured friend and photographer will be Amy Ortiz of Saje Photography.. You can check out her current work on her facebook page.
