The Journey

Today I thought I would share with y’all my journey to starting this business. Now that I’m here I can look back and see all the “divine bread crumbs” that God had put out for me. At times they seemed random, but now it all makes sense.


I went to JMU for undergrad and while I was there I think I had four majors. Nothing really clicked for me until I switched to Interior Design. There was something about the creative process that just worked for me. I remember staying in the studio center into the late nights just working on my projects and absolutely loving it. I graduated with a BFA, bachelor of fine art.

After college I had a few design jobs, but they were so different than what I did in the college. I soon learned I loved doing it for myself, but it was totally different when doing for others. I went back to school and got certified to teach art. I worked at a pottery shop during this time as well. Teaching art was something I thought I really wanted to do, but I ended up getting a job working with special needs children. Back to those “divine bread crumbs”! I really loved working with those kids, and did until I had Chloe.

I was never one of those people who always knew what they wanted to do professionally. After college I knew I loved the arts, and being creative, but never knew what that looked like as a career for me. Then I found photography and I knew.

Photography is something I love doing for others. I love being able to capture those special, fleeting moments. I think about how fast my children have grown, how much they have already changed. I feel grateful to be able to document that, and it’s something I want to do for others.

A few months ago Chloe asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up. I said “a photographer!” So that is how I got here. I really believe that God has a plan, and it’s rarely linear. If you had told me years ago when I had just graduated from JMU that I would be doing this there is no way I would have believed you! But, now I can’t imagine doing anything else.
