SOME FUN FACTS ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Friends and strangers call me Po. There's not many times you'll find me without an iced coffee in my hand. Surprise! One of my favorite things is visiting local coffee shops. If not coffee, then probably craft beer. My boyfriend, Michael and I are admittedly craft beer snobs and weirdly obsessed with our dog, Reese. I promised myself I wouldn't be "that dog mom" and now I flaunt it with no shame. Photography has always been a dream that I would put off because of fear. But life is short friends, so why not spend time doing what you absolutely love? Really, this is a hard truth I've realized this past year.

So what drew me to photography? Aside from meeting amazing people, I've discovered my happiness in allowing others to embrace the real emotion in the moment they've been waiting for. The type of emotion that can only be created when we slow down and allow ourselves to be reminded of how precious life is. The type of moments that give you butterflies and wish you could stay forever in. The photographs will be less than perfect and maybe a bit messy but that’s where your pure joy and uniqueness shines through. And let’s be real, not even iced coffee can beat that. 

So glad you asked! It's pretty dang fun. It's more than the traditional poses. It's more than having you simply pose and stare at the camera with a smile. It's about those big, full face smiles and the moments in between that are completely unrefined. That's all I'm about. A shoot with me will be both the silly moments, and the moments that make you slow down to take it all in. I want your photos to be a reminder of every emotion you experienced. The photos that make your heart skip a beat and give you goosebumps because you remember just how special the feeling was. You may be thinking, "but I hate being vulnerable, better yet in front of a camera" Oh, am I there with you! That's why I do all I can to make you forget the camera even exists.
