Start Your Business

There is no time better than right now

When I started my photography business I was employed full-time and enjoyed photography as a side job. After my daughter was born in 2009, I decided that I wanted the freedom to spend more time with my family and have the ability to grow my business simultaneously. Taking the leap into motherhood and full-time business ownership at the same time was the scariest and best thing that I've ever done.
