Hi! I love Sandy, God, our son Bryce, photography, travel, playing music, Philadelphia Eagles football (thanks to Sandy), hot rods, chocolate, good food, and hanging out with great friends and family.
I was born in Ohio and moved to Maryland when I was three. My dad would take me crabbing on the Severn River, and we would steam them when we got home. I can still smell the Old Bay seasoning. It was good eats. My parents bought me my first camera when I was twelve years old. One of my dad’s hobbies was photography, and he taught me the basics. I loved taking pictures and actually have one hanging in my office that I took back then. It is a beautiful sunset I took at a Naples beach when we were vacationing in Florida. Shortly after graduating high school, I became an auto mechanic at Ford dealership. That’s when I got the bug for hot rods. My brother introduced me to the guitar around the same time. He handed down his guitar to me, and I started playing. I’ve played in garage bands, and for the church on the worship team.
Sandy gave me the travel bug when we met many years ago. We love traveling and meeting new people, while capturing the beauty of the United States through our lenses. I was in auto finance when I met Sandy, and it was a stressful job with long hours. It was then that I realized that life is too short to spend most of your life away from family. When we decided to start our own business, I did not realize how wonderful it would be. We are our own bosses doing what we love. It is very gratifying making such an impact on people’s lives who love pictures of their family.
Hi! Faith, Family, Football (Superbowl Champs Philadelphia Eagles) are my top three passions! I also love traveling and photography.
After growing up in a small town in Indiana, it has been amazing to visit 48 of the 50 United States, plus the Caribbean, Canada, Mexico, and Central America. Parenthood slowed down our travels, but I still hope to visit all 50 states. In 2003, I felt the calling to leave my career in the banking-mortgage industry and follow my passion into photography & design. Part of the plan I did not expect was becoming friends with Chris in 2004, who became my husband in 2005, and my business partner in 2009. He had studied photography and brought the technical training to the business that I needed to compliment my artistic, story-telling approach.
Being married to Chris is awesome. He treats me with such love and respect. Laughter rings throughout our home whether we are watching a favorite show together, working in the office, or playing with Bryce. I have always had big love for children but could have never imagined the love that pours inside and out of me for our son. He truly makes our world complete. God continues to bless us, and life is good!
Hi! Trains (especially the Polar Express), race cars, elevators, escalators, doors, my I-pad, my family, and anything "Outer Space" are what I would consider the main loves in my life.
After being born on October 5, 2013 in Fort Pierce, Florida, I suffered a brain hemorrhage from a stroke the following day. I was taken to Miami Children’s Hospital by ambulance where I was in NICU for ten days. After many prayers, tears, and pleas to God, I began to breathe on my own again and my medication made the seizures stop. I am a little miracle! I survived a grade 4 IVH and developed my motor skills just like a healthy little boy. After I turned two, I started withdrawing and losing my language. In April 2016, we learned that I have autism. I am working really hard in all of my therapies and special school classes every week. I'm learning how to communicate better with words and to interact more with others. Lots of people tell me that I am a "little engineer" in the making.
Having Mommy and Daddy for parents is awesome! They love on me so much, take me to church, pray with me, help me with my therapies, and make our house a happy home. They really try to understand me and my world. I am so happy that God picked them to be my parents and help me on this journey!
