What is your favorite thing about your career?
There are so many things! I love being with people on the happiest day of their life (or what should be the happiest hahaha). I love getting to know my couples and their love stories, I love shooting, I love going though my images and thinking oh they are going to really love this image. I also love getting to work from home (I am so a home body) and that I can make my own schedule. I really just love getting to do what I feel like I was created to do and making those I take pictures of feel special : )
- Over the course of your life, how many cities have you lived in and which was your favorite?
I’m a simple girl: I’ve lived in Pittsburgh, State College and now, New York. Since living in New York I’ve lived in Mount Vernon and Pleasantville. My family and I don’t like change so I haven’t moved much.
- What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in the last year?
I think the most important thing I’ve learned is my limits. I’m learning not to compare myself to others and to just do what I can do and that’s enough. Last year I really overloaded myself and because of that my body shut down and I just wasn’t a happy person. I’m learning to set limits for myself and to not let myself go beyond those limits. So far I’m feeling happier and not overwhelmed.
- Name two things you consider yourself to be very good at.
I’m very organized and I really love to organize things from my schedule to our apartment. I’d also say I’m pretty good at taking pictures, if I do say so myself ; )
- When are you the happiest?
Floating in a pool or the ocean with my sunglasses on and the sun shinning down on me. Or playing and snuggling with a puppy.
And thanks to Amy for getting this picture of me doing a little work at Spark’s Ignite workshop this past weekend! It was perfect for today’s 5 on Friday!
