I stepped on the scene in 1981… well maybe more so pushed my way into this place. I will be honest, every year I battle with the joy of another birthday versus the fear of getting older. Joy always wins by a landslide of course and I spend time traveling or partying with friends. Though in the middle of all of this I am always sure to stop and document my milestone with birthday portraits. I love having photos to look back on my life in its different stages. This year I decided to dress both up and down, while praising the year I was born, as well as my sole journey as an only child.
I love that each of my birthday portraits reflects something about me. I am almost always smiling. I laugh randomly. You can often find me daydreaming by my lonesome. And last but not least; my photography business is a huge part of my life and I feel blessed to be doing what I love!
