On most photographer’s ‘about me’ pages, you’ll find a story about how they first picked up a camera at age 5 and haven’t put it down since. That’s not me. I just started using a camera regularly a few years ago and I have to admit, my love for photography has been peppered with a few periods of hate. But that’s what passion is about, right?
I do love photography, though. I love how it allows us to capture a moment that will never happen again – one that we may not have even seen otherwise. A look, a feeling, a scene, a decisive moment. Photographs that tell a story, little glimpses of soul here and there. Sometimes it’s hard to think about all of those things that I’m not capturing. But I’d like to use this blog to share what I am lucky enough to capture and allow others to share those moments with me.
I’m currently living in East St. Paul, in a house full of strange murals and a yard that I love. When I’m not photographing kids, I like to shoot live music and roller derby bouts, capture the in between moments with my phone, watch atrociously bad television, pretend I’m crafty and learn how to play with fire. I wear flip-flops as soon as the frost melts and purple Converse when it reappears. I like sleeping with the windows open and the sound of the nearby trains passing at night. I also have too many cats; would you like one?
