Thanks for your interest in Violet Inspired Photography and wanting to know about me and my journey!
I am so thankful to have accomplished my dream of becoming a photographer. Ever since I was a little girl I have had a camera wrapped around my neck, I loved looking at photos, taking photos, being in photos, just holding a photo was a thrill. It wasn’t till later when I met my husband that I got my first camera, he pushed me into my dream of owning my own business which I never thought would be possible for I don’t know what reason, because of him my dream turned into something totally real. Thanks babe!
I love photography for so many reasons. I love that I can create photos for people to adore for a lifetime, I love the emotions a perfect photo can bring, that you can create a story book without any words, the process of a photo inside the camera, I love cameras and camera equipment, I love the way it makes me feel when I get the photo that I envisioned in my head, the artistic freedom, constant learning and teaching, anything at all to do with creating a photograph is absolutely thrilling to me, I'm quite literally obsessed, I can talk about photography all day. Although I have never experimented with every type of photography, natural light is what I do best and is what I love the most. I strive to create soft natural photos, in editing and picture taking.
One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is the opportunity to meet so many new people and create new relationships, my goal is not only to become your wedding photographer but to become a friend, someone you can feel comfortable with so when it comes time to your wedding day you can be yourself around me and we can have a totally blast, which is a must for picture taking. During your day it is you that will inspire me to create photos in the best way I can, watching what the two of you do and how you act with each other throughout the day will help me capture your story. Being inspired is the biggest deal to taking photos as it guides me through every wedding and shoot I do, which is why I named my business Violet Inspired. So many things inspire me, your décor and details on the wedding day, the personalities I meet, your emotions and excitement, and the locations I get to visit, they all help in creating the photos I take for you, so I love to be involved and informed as much as possible in your wedding planning process. :)
I am so blessed to be able to have a job that I not only love but to have it accommodate with my day-to-day life is amazing. Aside from photography I had always dreamed of being the best wife and mother that I could possibly be. I have been married for 7 years now to my incredible husband Philip who not only is my best friend but my second shooter! We are so insanely close that we have bumped heads far to many times(literally) but I wouldn’t have it any other way. We love each other unconditionally and are ecstatic to show our clients that the wedding day is just a wonderful start to an amazing life of committed marriage.
Most important though is our committed relationship with God, we stand firmly on the phrase Faith.Love.Family in that order, which leads us to our girls Vera and Haven, God has blessed us with two little sweethearts and we couldn't be more thankful for His gift of parenthood. Being a full-time wife, momma, photographer, editor, blogger and business owner is a lot to handle sometimes but I put my faith in God and he gets me through my every days.
On a side note, in the spare time that I do find for myself you would catch me shopping online for my girls(possibly myself), pinning interior design, discovering cute modern baby brands, talking over coffee, or enjoying a beautiful day with my family. I hope you enjoyed my story, if you made it all the way through my site and liked everything please feel free to contact me on a personal level and we can go out for coffee and chat! I would love to get to know you just as much as you got to know me!
