interview

Tell me about yourself.

I have a hard time talking about myself so that's why I looked up the top interview questions! LOL!! I believe I am a good mom, wife and friend that has a happy disposition. I have been told I'm always in a good mood (not true) but that I'm not annoying. I love eating good food with my family and friends, I love the water and lots of road trips! My family drove across the country to California this summer and it was one of our best vacations ever! Visiting gardens and taking care of my own flower garden brings me joy but sometimes the heat and mosquitoes get the best of me. 

 

What are your greatest strengths?

I love design and I think it carries through to my photography. Most times I can see beauty even in challenging situations and I love figuring out how to turn things around. When I'm given a project, I enjoy seeing it through to the end. I'm also a people pleaser so I'm likely to say yes :) but I also have boundaries and consider myself and my family top priority.

What are your weaknesses?

I admit I am a procrastinator when it comes to doing something for myself but I will come through strong when I'm doing something for someone else. I am human though so I have no problem saying I'm sorry. I also get tangled up in the world of perfection. I have to remind myself daily that I don't have to be perfect, I just have to be real and serve people the best way I know how.

What brought you to becoming a photographer?

I took my graphic design degree and decided to put it to good use by becoming a portrait photographer. Hmm, that doesn't make much sense  but I do believe my love for design influences my photography. I started in a studio then found a love for weddings. I now focus on more intimate photography with families, babies and creative sessions. I do still love a big beautiful wedding though. Just not every weekend :)  

Tell me about a time when a client disagreed with you. What did you do?

Clients disagree with me all the time. I offer choices and sometimes they don't choose what I want for them but I have a super power! They will never know they are actually disagreeing with me. It is my job to help my families feel safe and comfortable so even if I am disappointed they don't want to kick off their shoes and hop in the river, of course it's ok!  

Where do you see yourself in five years? In 10 years?

In the years to come, I dream of having my own garden studio near a lake where I can invite my clients to play in my ever-changing space. It will be full, wild and not super manicured but perfect for photography. It will be the place that I've always searched for that will have something special in every season.
