Why did you decide to start your own company?
I started my business 36 years ago with the dream of being my own boss. I’m still my own boss now, after 25 years and embrace the tenacity it takes to stay relevant in this ever-changing industry. I’ve always loved photography and the connection I have with the people I photograph and that is the reason why I wanted to be the go-to face of my own company.
How did you come up with the name of your company?
My Mom did that for me =)
What is your favorite part about what you do?
I’m building relationships with my clients who know they can trust their most precious moments in life with. They know that I’m responsible for making sure these once in a lifetime life cycle moments are secure in my possession. I got this.
Do you have a favorite story related to your business?
It’s hard to have just one memorable moment but, I do know that when I’m touched by a moment at any event I realize I have the best job in the world.
Do you have a favorite type of event?
Each event has its challenges and needs, but weddings bring all of those together at once. I love the creative opportunity each wedding brings and I rise to the occasion when each client is counting on me to make something beautiful out of their special day.
Is there anything you’d like our readers to know about you personally?
I have really good weather karma.
Do you have a team or do you work solo?
A talented team is the only way I work these days. I want to know that every facet of the event is
covered and my goal is to exceed my client’s expectations every time. I have options for 2nd and
3rd photographers to work with me for packages that are created just for each client’s needs.
