Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
I knew from the age of fourteen that I would be a graphic designer. No one could change my mind, that was the be all, end all of my career. I created layouts in my sleep, learned every aspect I could of Photoshop and InDesign, studied my butt off in college and got my bachelor’s degree. I continued happily working as a designer throughout my twenties, blissfully unaware that my career and goals were about to completely pivot.
Guys, I was buzzing at the end of her wedding day. I had no idea what I was doing at the time but wedding photography burrowed its way into my heart and brain. I couldn’t stop thinking about it and tried everything to incorporate more photography into my design work to see if that would soothe the weird creative beast inside my mind. Nope, I needed more love, tulle, and peonies in my life. Fast forward to today, I’m so incredibly thankful I let go of my “life plan” and made wedding photography my full-time gig. I’ve never felt more creatively fulfilled, connected to other humans, and so proud to create family legacies for generations to come.
favorites of mine
I married my junior high sweetheart, Mike. We’ve been together since I was the ripe old age of 13 and have never broken up. Finding someone you love is easy, finding someone you like for 20 years is a miracle and I’m so lucky to have found him.
We’re cat parents to three extremely fluffy rescue kitties, Ruby, Remy, and Radar.
If you haven’t already figured it out, I’m a HUGE Harry Potter fan. Like it’s tattooed on my back forever kind of fan. Hogwarts is my home.
Speaking of tattoos, I also have a tiny owl on my wrist because for some reason, I’ve been obsessed with them since I was 2 years old. I used to dress stuffed owls up in dresses and carry them around like a baby doll. My mother was very confused.
London is my favorite city in the world and I cried like a baby in Heathrow airport when we had to leave.
I have an unabashed love for Harry Styles. I believe he’s the change we need to see in this world. Also he’s very cute, so there’s that. 😎
