I am a Montana native, born and raised in Livingston. I attended Montana State University for my undergraduate years, receiving a bachelors of science in nutrition. I then proceeded on to the University of Tennessee for my graduate degree in sport and performance psychology, and had my life changed forever. Realizing my life long hobby and passion for photography was more than just that, I moved back to Montana and started my business without looking back.
I ran across this quote the other day and feel like it is so applicable to myself as a photographer. So often I hear how people hate having their picture taken, or never feel x,y or z enough to be in front of the camera. Those statements and words break my heart, because all I see is the light and beauty that is instilled in you, and that's also what I capture.
"It doesn't make sense for us to cling to our insecurities., because
we don't really see ourselves. We don't watch ourselves sleeping in
bed curled up silent with our chests rising and falling with our own
rhythm.We don't see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and
glowing. You don't see yourself looking at someone with love and
care in your heart. There's no mirror in your way when you're
laughing and smiling and pure happiness is leaking out of you. You
would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw
yourself in the moments where you are truly your authentic self."
