Happy World Photography Day to all my incredible photographer friends!

And to meeeeeeee!

Becoming a Family+brand portrait photographer and storyteller has been the most incredible adventure.

I love documenting family memories, creating heirlooms, and building personal brands. It is all about legacy.

Every day, I feel SO blessed to do what I love for a living that I don't even mind the long hours photographing, culling, editing and delivering heirlooms that will be part of your lives forever.

I want to pour happiness into your lives by creating the best photographs you have ever seen of yourselves.

I am thankful for all of you who have supported, encouraged, followed, hired, or referred me during my artistic journey.

I am forever grateful to you.

For me, photography is everything. I photograph with all my heart because I want to pour happiness into your lives by documenting the ordinary in an extraordinary way.

You are in my heart if I have ever photographed you.

Today, I want to share my favorite quotes about photography to celebrate World's Photography Day.
