Hi I'm Aimee
My passion has always been to document life.
I'm a memory keeper. I always have been. My mom, when I was little,got tired of the birthday cards, awards, and notes strewn across my bedroom so she gave me a "special drawer"to use for my memorabilia. It was a way for her to be ok with my memory hoarding tendencies, but in an organized way.
I have since moved on to other mediums to document not only my life but the countless lives of friends, family and clients. Photography is my primary avenue of choice, but I also write and draw. In more recent years, I have also become the history keeper for my entire family once I stumbled upon the amazing world of genealogy!
I wasn't always a photographer.
Once I started a family of my own in 2001, I was drawn to photography in order to preserve memories. I did not want to forget the bed head, and chubby dimpled fingers, or what our daily lives looked like. I knew I would not forget the big events, (Christmas, birthdays, etc.) but that the mundane daily life could fall between the cracks, and those details are what I was more drawn to. Those details of life spark my heart.
After a few years of photographing my own family, I fell in love with the art and decided to shoot other families. I enjoyed showing them what their love in action looked like. After about 7 years of that, I began branching out and started taking on different genres and fell in love allllll over again! I really do delight in all types of creativity. I become bored with the same thing day after day.
I believe having 15+ years of experience in photography and 21 years of being a mom is what gives me better insight to taking family portraits.
Whatever my kids watch!
