Journey, Motivation & Why

 

Years ago I had professional portraits made as I entered my senior year. I would not realise it at the time, but that experience had a profound impact on my life.  They built my confidence and self esteem when I really needed it.  I had decisions to make about my future and I finally felt like I was ready.

Following high school graduation I would join the Army.  Though I did not think much about following the art of photography, my past experience always stuck with me.  As life continued, as well as my military service, I'd meet the love of my life.  We would eventually wed, I'd adopt his son, and we would have two children of our own.  Throughout the time of his military service, it would become very apparent that capturing memories of our family through photography would be of the utmost importance. 

 

Motivated From the Deepest Places

During my husbands last deployment to Afghanistan, I made quite the recognition.  I watched as other spouses of deployed soldiers would cling to a photo of their soldier when we as spouses would receive unsettling news.  They would be clinching them tight, praying that their loved one was alright.  The families of the men who would not come home would hold on to one thing, the past moments and memories.  The past times would be held in the version of a photograph.  In those photographs held so close, you could see their true personalities and times spent with the ones they loved.
