Well it's been a long time coming. I moved to the Phoenix, Arizona valley one year ago in July and I am finally ready to roll my shutter again. I have missed all of my regular photography gigs and clients back in Wisconsin. As I see them carry on, I remember I too must carry on. Now that I have had time to get to know the area and adapt to the climate, I am very excited and motivated to get back to work as a photographer. Moving to Arizona has been an amazingly positive change in my life and I will be forever glad I made the move.
One of the most exciting changes that has taken place is currently growing inside me, due to escape on November 30th! My husband and I are expecting a baby (human, we are maxed out on pets at the moment with 4!) and we've decided to be surprised by the baby's gender. If you've known me for any length of time, you know that I am currently living a dream come true. A great big part of this dream is getting to chase down my ideal photography business, as Artistic Eye Photography I will now be focusing on capturing childbirth! If you are just getting to know me, take a look at this video which I created in 2009. When I put together this video project I fell head over heels in love with childbirth photography. The love intensity is 1,000 times stronger than working as a wedding photographer. Unbeknownst to me at the time, I was a year away from a divorce and my dream of focusing my business on birth photography was a twinkle in the sky. Well folks, the stars have aligned and I am now in a position where I can make it happen. I will continue to be a portrait and wedding photographer with no more than one wedding per month on my schedule, allowing for the unpredictability of most babies grand entrances.
